Hide images from other folders does not work as expected

Hi all,

i’ve successfully set up NCP on my Raspberry Pi4. So far everything works as expected.

Documents are in a folder called “documents” and images in “images” which is the “photos” folder but renamed.

But now i realized that also images stored under “documents” appear in the Photos app section “Your photos”.
I’ve tried to avoid it adding either .noimage or .nomedia(both hidden files) to the corresponding folder, but even after deletion and re-upload the images still appear there.

Any suggestion?
Thanks Uwe

EDIT: Just in case it’s important: The data were uploaded to the documents folder using the sync app on my Linux laptop. I did not try the web upload so far
