    I've recently noticed that we can "hide collection" from the gallery in the default Oneplus5T Gallery. But I'm not sure where does the hidden collections go to or how to access them. Can someone help me with this?

    as far as I checked, they stay where they are. for instance, I scanned a photo using the photos app and used the hide option from the gallery on that pic.

    I went to file manager to see if I could find that photo under DCIM -> Photoscan and I saw it there.

    so basically, the gallery is simply hiding photos inside itself but the media is available to apps outside it, and they are not moved anywhere.

    I will be careful though. try hiding a few pics whose location you're aware of and see if they are still there. then you can hide the rest.
