    I tried to hide my files but they still showing up. I went through the process of hiding them(using chflag hidden in terminal) but they still showing up in my images(now doubled for some odd reason)

    Well yes, doing anything in terminal will not take affect until your restart. If it didn't work when you restarted then you did something wrong
