    Check to make sure that you actually saved the pictures onto the external sd card and not the internal sd card by accident. Also, use a file manager to search the directory you saved the photos in just to make sure the images are there. If there, then make sure the photo gallery/viewer app you are using can see that same directory.

    Welcome to the forums. I agree with magnus. Most of the time, files are saved by default to the internal memory.

    Welcome to Android Central! Yes, agree with above. Remember that with Android, the Internal Storage is considered by the system to be an "internal SD card," even though it's not removable. If you look at your directories with a file manager, you'll see "sdcard0" (which is the Internal Storage) and "sdcard1" (which is the External SD card).

    If you moved the photos to your SD, then remove it from the phone (unmounting first), insert it into your computer, and see if the computer sees the files. Samsung devices tend to have problems with SD card access.

    Incidentally, in the future, I recommend COPYING rather than MOVING photos, since moving will delete them from the source.
