I second this. My gallery is also full of album art. I would rather it not be.
In my gallery, there is 1 folder for each album art picture. Is there a way to put these folders in 1 master folder? It's not necessary to remove the pics, but at least organize them in a manner that doesn't overrun the android gallery.
Or can we have an option to disable downloading album art?
(There is a way to only show certain content, but it will only work if your images are in Dropbox, Picasa or Facebook. Under Gallery Options, choose Content to Display. The options are All content, Content in Device, Content in Dropbox, Facebook or Picasa. I chose in Picasa because my pics are backed up there. So, doing this eliminates the album art folders from my gallery as they are not backed up to Picasa.)
Generally, I would rather have the option to disable downloading the album art. I use the android version mostly in my car. My car has its own method of displaying art, GraceNote, so I never use the art downloaded by madsonic. I realize others may use it. That's why I suggest an option.
