    I discovered a way to hide pictures in the Photos hub, at least on my phone. Drag all the pictures you want into a folder, name the Folder WhatsApp via files or the computer. It will become invisible to the Photos hub till you rename it something else. Might be a glitch or something IDK, try it and see. You can still access the pictures via the file manager app though

    Also, renaming one of my folders to Wallpapers made it vanish from existence. I had to name it my wallpapers for it to appear in the photos hub

    I didn't even know that . I was just wondering why my pictures stopped showing up even when I deleted and retransferred the folders.

    And for the pics, just don't store them in pictures folder, they will not be visible
    Not true. I have a folder "more" with two subfolders containing pictures on my SD card. All these folders, subfolders and their images appear in the pictures hub.
