Hello alilabaf, welcome to Seven forums.

Where did you find these folders/files?
What folder were they contained in?

Just to help us out a little.

Normally you should'nt delete hidden folders (Hence why they are hidden) and also i doubt very much you could stop these from being created.

But we do need a bit more info as to where you came accross the said folders/files.

Do you have/use a photo editing software? (For example to touch up pictures, remove redeye etc)

One likely possibility are that these hidden files are back ups of the original picture so you can later revert changes.

Thats just a guess however, and as Luckystar said we really need more information to help determine the cause.
