    Open the camera. There's a little settings icon/cogwheel. Press it and options open up - scroll down to near the bottom you can select where to store the photos.

    Same process for the video recorder.

    Thanks. That worked. I didn't realize there were more options to scroll through.

    this option does not appear on my S3. it's really frustrating. I think it appears in some versions of the s3 and not in others.

    It should be on all S3s
    Go into the actual camera app and click the settings from there then scroll down, you should see it

    If this hasn't been answered yet then let me see if I can help.... I ran into a similar situation and my fix was simple.... Go to your settings and then to the camera app and clear your defaults...

    Now, launch your camera app and you should be prompted to use your SD card.

    Literally just found out but the way you move your stuff from the internal memory to your SD card is go to storage. Then manage internal memory. Then it'll ask what you want to move ex. pics vids music. And If the other way around just go to manage SD memory. Hope this helps and if you want pictures to go to either your SD card or internal memory go to the camera. Then press the settings icon and choose it there.

    I upgraded from galaxy s to galaxy s3. All my photos on my old phone are stored in internal memory, and not on the sd card. How do I transfer those to the sd card so I can see them on my new siii? Thanks...

    If the option is greyed out, it can't see your SD card.

    Go into <settings>, <storage> and make sure your SD card is "mounted". You might also try formatting the SD card, especially if you didn't upon intallation (IF YOU HAVE ANY FILES ON THE CARD YOU WILL LOSE THEM UPON FORMATTING!). You might also try unmounting/ mounting the card.
    To move pics to your SD card, install "Quickpic" from the Play Store. The "Gallery" app doesn't have the option of moving files. I believe QuickPic will automatically import existing pics but I can't remember to be honest. When you see the thumbmails of your pics, click the checkmark in the top right corner of the screen to enable "multiselect". Highlight the pics you want to move, then click the menu button (three squares in a column) on the top right, and select "move to". On the resulting file menu, you have to find your SD card. On my menu, I select "storage", then it shows my phone storage (labeled "sdcard0") and my SD card (labeled "extSdCard"). Click your SD card and select the location on the card you want the pics to go to (in my case the "Pictures" folder). If you don't have a Pictures folder, you can create one by selecting "new folder" at the bottom of the screen, then assign it a name. Select "OK", and the previously selected pics will be moved to that new folder.

    I found with my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 that the move to option wasn't available in Quickpic until I selected a picture for a few seconds and a blue border appeared around that pic, then the move option was available. And to choose multiples I selected the first pic (blue border) then selected the last pic I wanted then all from the first to the last would have a blue border, then the move option was available for all selected. It took only a few minutes to move 500 pics. Thanks to Volium for pointing me in the right direction.

    Garry, that works great if you're moving every pic to the same destination. However, if you have a variety of shots and want to move them to different folders, use "multiselect" (the checkmark on the top right). That allows you to select multiple pics, but skipping ones that you don't want to go to a particular destination folder. Glad you like the app.

    I was having the same problem I also wanted to save downloaded videos and picture's. I found an app that is called hideit pro. It is made for people to hide information but when ever you hide something from your phone to the app it automatically save it to your sd card. Very ez and the app is free in your market or play store.

    I found this after searching some folders in the phone. Tap the own files (or whatever it's in English) icon in the main menu. It should take you to path /mnt/sdcard. There is a folder named DCIM and inside it folder named Camera. I found my photos from there. I'm not sure if this helps but it's always worth a try. I have nevert changed any settings of the camera in any situation.
