    Thread Starter

    I am interested in moving photos and videos from my Galaxy S3's memory to the SD card. My carrier is AT&T.

    My phone isn't able to work due to lack of memory. Is there an app for that? That would be fabulous!

    Thanks for the help!

    There is a camera setting which automatically saves photos to sd card

    Open the camera
    Press "cog"
    Scroll to the bottom
    Set storage to memory card

    For existing photos you can move them using my files or any file manager such as esfile manager in the same way that you copy and paste files on a pc (for safety use copy not cut- go back and delete once safely copied)

    The photos before moving should be in sdcard/DCIM. The camera app will create a folder for them to be moved to on the extsdcard when you change the settings.

    Note that the removeable sd card is extsdcard and the internal storage is confusingly called sdcard.
