Creates a .nomedia file in the directory of the chosen folder to prevent the android gallery from displaying pictures from the folder and subfolders. If recursive mode is selected a .nomedia file will also be placed in each subfolder of the location chosen (recursive mode is typically not necessary but useful for times when a single .nomedia at the root folder fails to block the images in the subfolders).

Flow can be used with a widget if desired. Custom icons for automate widgets are available at www.iconspedia.com assuming you are using an automate flow beginnings shortcut style widget and have a custom android launcher like GoLauncher or an app like Icon Changer from the app store that allows you to change shortcut icons.

Note: Blocked images will not disappear until the gallery re-scans your device which may take several minutes after running the flow and sometimes takes effect after a reboot. This may not work on all devices.
