    Your pics should be on the S3's strorage in folder DCIM.
    The S3 should have a file manager. Use it to find the SD card, create there a folder for the pics and move the pics to folder ... voila :)

    All photos taken with the phone, as Harry2 says are in a folder called DCIM. If you have used Bluetooth to get pictures from another device then they'll be, logically enough in a folder called Bluetooth. Other pictures could be in Downloads.

    In the SGSIII's native file manager your new SD card will be called "extSDCard" under "All files" open it and make a new folder called "Pictures", now go back to "all files" and navigate to one of the folders mentioned above, for example : All files>sdcard0 (your phone's internal storage) >DCIM>Camera. From there mark all the files you wish to move by clicking the tick boxes next to each file. Then tap top right (the three lines with a little triangle) and choose move. Then extSDCard and your new Pictures folder and tap "move here" in the top right. Corner. Job done.

    I think, Samsung's stock file manager is named My Files and is located in the app drawer.

    But you'd install a better file manager, ES File Explorer, free in Play Store :)

    might be easier to setup dropbox to automatically sync ure pictures to your pc and vice versa(you get 50gb free with the s3).

    thanks so much for you concise and complete explanation. We beginners could certainly use more of that.
