    Go into system settings > applications > camera app (not sure what the exact name of it is on the S3, could be twcamera.apk) and force stop it then clear cache. See if that helps.

    It's shown as Camera; also do the same thing for Gallery (For each app Clear cache [if it's enabled] and Clear data. BTW, they're under Settings -> Application manager -> All).

    What happened two weeks ago when the problem started?

    Are your pictures stored on the internal memory or an SDCard? If the latter, try unmounting the SDCard and see what happens.

    Finally, you could try booting into Recovery mode and clearing the cache.

    Pacos,
    Did you try the suggestions in post #3?
    Have you had this problem the whole time you've had your S4 or did it just start 3 weeks ago?
    If the latter, what else happened around the same time (ex. you installed an SD card; received an OTA update; etc)?
    If you have an SD card, you could try removing it to see if the problem goes away - perhaps it got corrupted.

    If clearing cache for the app doesn't work, try this:

    Go to Settings / Application Manager, tap Menu, then tap Reset App preferences.

    If that doesn't work, turn the phone off (all the way off, powered down completely), then boot into recovery. Press and hold, at the same time, the Volume Up, Power and Home buttons. Hold them until you see the Samsung logo, then release all three. It should boot to a text menu. (If it doesn't, turn the phone off and try again.) Use the volume buttons to select the option to clear cache, then press the power button. Then select the option to reboot the phone, and press power.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
