Cannot find a way to change default application

    Hello,
    I have a Galaxy S3
    I have K9 email installed

    By default, Attachment photos are opened with an application that was on the phone when I got it. That app is called "Photo"

    It is opening the wrong attachments a lot of the time. For example, my wife sends me an email with a photo of a car attached and it opens the email, but the attachment could be a photo from an email from several days ago. It does this often. Very frustrating.

    So, what I want to do is DISASSOCIATE the app (Photo) from K9 email as the default photo opener but going on 5 days now and I can find absolutely no way to DIS associate that app from opening the attachments to change the default photo attachment application.

    BTW - when I go into K9 email settings, I do not have the option to Clear Defaults. Is that because I have to shut it down first?

    Also, when I go into --> settings --> more --> Application Manager the application "Photo" is not there at all ?
    K9 mail is there but it says "No Defaults Set"

    Under Default Applications, it is not listed so I'm really stumped on this one.

    Thanks

    The "photos" is part of google+. Maybe removing google+ defaults will help.
