Help! Please.  I keep getting a warning on my Samsung J3 phone that my storage space is running low.  The culprit is my photo gallery.  I don’t want to use cloud storage, but do have an SD card inserted with tons of available space.  Here are my questions.  First, I under camera settings, I had selected “SD card” under Storage location, but when I take photos, they are not storing there.  What’s wrong?  Second, how do I move the thousands of photos currently in Gallery from internal storage to my SD card?  Unlike documents, I don’t see a way to select large numbers of photos and use a “Move to” command.  Maybe I just haven’t found that?  Thanks for any help.  Big event coming up and I have to solve this ASAP.

Open "My files"

Find folder "DCIM"

Then move them to your SD card .



As far as the camera to SD card issue, you can try clearing data on the camera to see if there's an issue

Thanks a bunch.  I had already moved my DCIM folder to the SD card, but it only copied the folder, so I had the original photos on my Internal storage.  I did change the data on my camera, and reset to SD card storage again, then moved the DCIM folder back over.

Just took two test shots and -- yahoo!! -- looks like they saved to the SD card this time.  Time will tell if this is solved, but the warning about storage space running low is gone.

Thanks -- I really appreciate your help with this. 

Happy Trails!
