    Using this trick you can stop Whatsapp images being appeared on your Gallery.

    For Android Users

    * You need to have a file manager application

    * I will select ES File Explorer which is really good , Install it on your Android device

    * Then go to Whatsapp folder and create file named .nomedia file

    * So as to do this you have to Tap New button in the lower left, choose File and create a file with name .nomedia

    Now your Whatsapp Images and Videos won't appear in Gallery or Photo Album. :)

    Nice thread ..! :)
    Creating .nomedia file in any folder will skip the media scan in that folder, hence this can be appied to any other folder [other than What's app folder] to skip media scan ;) :troll5:
