Hi and welcome to the forums!

Hide in this cast refers to the picture viewer, not the picture. If you select a picture and press hide,

You will be returned to the homescreen, the picture will not be hidden.


If you need more information, please ask!

If not, please resolve the post using the options by the kudos’ star.

Just check the post that had your answer!

Hi, I've just done the exact same thing!but I struggled to find an answer on the forum so spent a while trying to figure it out. I found that when you go into the media app, use the menu to 'explore' then you can view the files in the folders. When in the folder you can use the menu to view hidden files. You can then gain access to the properties menu when viewing the 'hidden' photo and you can un-check the hide function. Apologies if you have already found an answer
