    Hi All,

    Wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction, I am new to the droid market coming from Iphone and I have transfered all my pics from the PC onto my Galaxy 3 but them seem to be all over the place. Is there anyway I can put them into folders like I had on my Iphone??

    Have you tried using the "my files" app to manage/create/organise your pictures?

    App draw among the apps, should be alphabetical order so scroll to M.

    Just navigate to your ext sd card, and just find all your pictures and create folders to sort them into, just remember that confirmation buttons appear at the top of the screen :)

    might be easier to plug the drive into your PC via usb cable access the phone as a drive and just drag and drop the files where you want. Same as XplosiV said your just doing it on the PC which is easier.

    So should I get an SD Card and store them all on there? Is that the better option or to install them directly on the phone?

    I had the same issue.

    Easy fix.

    All the iphone photos are named: IMG_ then a number
    Samsung photos are named 2012_ then a number

    I used a program called 'flash renamer' to rename all my photos transferred from iphone by changing anything starting with "IMG" to "2011" (as 2011 is a lower number than 2012)

    Now i sort my pictures by 'name' on the galaxy in gallery (or quickpic which is better)

    all photos in order and samsung photos will be in order

    Thanks Fourther, did you download that on the Samsung phone or on your PC? I just went through all my pics while plugged into the pc and made folders so that the pics I had are now in group folders.

    Thanks for your help guys sorry if some of these queries sound very Simple!!

    Is this similar to Astro manager? It will just move the pics and not duplicate them correct ?

    This answer should be posted on top just next to the Android logo.:D Sometimes you have things in front of you and just can't see them.
    I've been looking for this answer for 3 days. Thanks samshedrat2010. Oh, and very sorry to the rest for crashing the post :eek:. Thanks again.

    Can anyone instruct me (in words of one syllable) how to sort the gallery by name as fourther mentions? When I open the gallery app and the folder I want to reorganize, my only option is "group by," and there's no "by name" grouping option.

    If I'm looking at the gallery folders screen, and I've selected the folder but haven't opened it, I have no sort or group options.

    I've seen several people recommend quickpic, but I can't stand downloading apps to do things that can be done natively.
