    there used to be a feature in the Oneplus1, where you could skip media scan for a particular folder. which means if I disnt want the gallery app to read a particular folder by selecting this option it would not. so that way some images would be private and u disnt need to really hide and un hide.is there a way that could be done today too?

    yes, by placing a ".nomedia" file in that particlar folder, you'll need to enable "show hidden files" in the file manager settings first though.

    File Manager > (enable hidden files) > open the folder you want to omit > create new file called ".nomedia" > save > ??? > profit!
