Question about media library


I recently learned that my players can access every picture in the media library. Is there any way to make some pictures DM only? Among other things I use the media library for stat blocks for encounters and generally a lot of things that my players shouldn't know about. I have not been able to find any option for clicking DM only there. 

Can anyone help me?

    When you create a New Folder in your Media Library, there's a checkbox for "GM Only." That'll keep 'em out. :)

    I found is out some time ago, and use UTM's suggestion. This allows me to hide pics in my GM only folder and have more public pics in the root Media folder.

    Dont forget, you can keep more than just pictures in your library! I've got character sheets and blank spell/item cards so my folks can print them any time. I've saved some straight downloaded files for some homebrew stuff too. I've got a bunch of random tables for me to roll from behind the scenes as well, instead of having to leaf through a bunch of papers.
