Move photos to folders
Is there any way to move photos that I have taken into separate folders?
Right now they are just sitting in the "Camera Shots" Album. I would like to be able to create several other albums (i.e. kids, family, friends, pets, etc) to easily access pictures instead of scrolling through 100's.
Thank you in advance.

I have to astrofile, i put all my pics into DCIM --> 100MEDIA --> Then all my subfolders, family, friends, etc etc. All the appropriate pics are in the appropriate folder, but when i go to gallery all the albums show is: Camera Shots, All Photos, All Videos, All Downloads, Sample Photo
Where are all my sub Folders???????????????????

Ok, so i answered my own question. You need to take all the sub folders out of the dcim folder. I created an additional folder on the sd card in the same place as the DCIM folder, like the main screen called Media. In there i pasted all my sub folders. Done, worked, im happy now. now when i go to gallery, i have all my sub folders there, family, dog, sports, camera etc etc

it didnt work, first, i created a new folder where all the folders are in the SDCARD, there is already a "media" folder, so i created a new folder in the same main place called "My Media", and placed all the folders that were inside the DCIM into the My Media folder and nothing shows up in Gallary......

i pasted my sub folder inside DCIM, on the main location where all the folders are, in the media folder, and even created a new folder in the main SDCARD screen called My Media and still nothing. no matter where i place the stupid sub folder it will not find it..... i took another photo and went back to DCIM and its inside a "100MEDIA" folder so i pasted my sub folder inside tehre and its still wont show so im out of ideas.

it doesn't matter what folders you create. pics will always be saved in the dcim folder. the only way to put pics in other folders is to move them by opening your sd card on the computer. file managers may be able to do this as well but i have not tried it. i have been dealing with moving certain pics to certain folders since i first got the G1 when it came out. kind of annoying because the sidekick was able to do this right on the phone.

Re: Move photos to folders
I just founded an app that allow EASILY to move photos and videos and create new albums in a few clics! You can also take your pics direct in the correct album! It suggests you current location as album name when you create a new album.
Download Foozer it from Google Play

Re: Move photos to folders
I second Foozer! I installed and uninstalled 4 of the highest reviewed photo apps, because NONE of them did what I wanted them to do: simply create, organize and manage photo albums. Foozer does exactly this and does it elegantly. I am not interested in cutifying photos on my GS3 (sorry for posting in the HTC forum, but there was precious little about Foozer in the hardware-specific forum); if I am going to edit photos, I'll do it on my computer where I have room to work, and I'll do it in Photoshop. I am surprised that Samsung and Android doesn't handle this basic operation in a much cleaner simpler way; my BlackBerry 9550 with its native software did it a whale of a lot better than these guys. With Foozer, I'm back in the simple business.
