    The real problem is deleting pictures from the SD card. No picture app I've used, stock, Google or otherwise, will delete pictures from the SD card. The only app that will is My Files browser. But that can only display tiny thumbnails.

    For convenience sake, I may have to save pictures to internal memory and occasionally archive them to external SD.

    Really wish Google didn't screw with SD card users like this.

    Go to the camera settings and it is there but you can not see it until you scroll the options up.

    I swear it didn't work earlier today, but I can delete pics from the SD card with the Gallery app. Not sure why I thought I couldn't.

    The Gallery app does display all of my edited pictures in the Pixlr Express folder twice. Same file name both times. If I delete one, the thumbnail for the duplicate remains, but you get the broken picture icon when you tap on it. There is no picture when it's viewed through Quickpic.

    I installed my SD card and my camera app automatically saved to it. I also delete and edit photos all the time from it. Haven't had any issues yet.

    I have an SD card installed on the S5 and had settings on the camera to goto sdcard, however when I do a storage glance it says it has used memory on my main device.. am I just reading this wrong?

    Ya probably

    You can always manually check to see where it is being stored via the built-in file manager "my files"

    You can delete them easy from the memory card . I do it from the gallery all the time . Just long press on the pic and the waste basket appears . Or pull the memory card and plug it into your computer .

    Stills are by default saved to an SD card unless in burst mode. Check and see if you are in burst mode.

    For downloads, go into Internet settings and specify external sd

    No way to do it with screenshots that I know of

    you may be able to use this app and store the video into OTG disk directly.
    to avoid the internal memory full or trouble in transfer file from internal memory to external SD card.

    search 'CameraOTG' from play store or

    Pardon my ignorance, but how is this app better than the stock gallery app?

    When I went to camera settings, I didn't see the save to SD option - but you have to scroll down to that option - why they just didn't put all the icons on one page because it appears that all that are there are the ones that pop up first, since there is more room on the screen for the others, but there is a scroll bar on the right - then I found it! Sneaky!

    Yeah, that scroll bar IS sneaky! I didn't see it either till someone pointed it out seveal weeks ago.
    As for deleting pictures from the SD card, I'm using the stock gallery and my pictures delete just fine.
    I wonder if the card is locked?
