Once you enter the WhatsApp settings, you have to click on the Chats category. This is the one that contains all the options related to the history, appearance and backup copies of all the conversations you have, so the management of the photos has also been included inside.

When you do, WhatsApp will stop displaying recently downloaded multimedia files in your phone's gallery.

And that's it, from now on the photos will stop going to the WhatsApp folder destined to the images and that was added to the gallery, and they will go to a folder called Private. Therefore, you can still access them by hand, but they will not appear or bother in the gallery next to the photos you take with the camera.
