Most apps, when they want to choose an image, use an implicit intent, which just says what they want to do, and doesn't specifically name the Gallery app. This means that any app that can perform that action can be started, and if you have more than one, you get the chooser to choose which to launch. This is the normal behaviour. You won't get a chooser if ...

This should even enable you to install a file manager (if you have not already done so, or a useful file manager was pre-installed). So in order to remove some ...

It seems that copying with X-Plore causes this issue... It makes the phone re-scan the SD card, but also seems to alert it of the fact there has been a file copied. I'm unfamiliar with what's going on in the background, but I do know this; Copying a picture to a folder with a .nomedia file, with X-Plore, causes the image to show in the gallery. Copying ...
