    Default Galaxy S3: Deleting screen captures

    I know this topic has been covered before. However, I have 3 screen captures on my phone. But when I go to the standard folders where you would expect to find screen capture, such as pictures/screen captures there is nothing there. In fact I can't find a folder on either my external card or on the phone anywhere that deals with screen captures. If I long press on the images in the gallery, all I get are options to email them or download them. Downloading does nothing. I made a bunch of albums so I could store all my camera images by category, but I can't even move them into one of these folders. I'm pulling what remains of my hair out trying to figure our how to get rid of them. Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have a file explorer like ES File Explorer, you can try to search the phone for the name of the picture and see if you can delete it then.

    When you long-press an item in the Gallery you should get checkboxes shown next to each item, and the item that you long-pressed should have a checkmark, at which point the Trash icon should show up in the upper right corner.Does that happen when you fiddle with other pictures?
    Are you on 4.3?
    Using the stock Gallery app?

    I don't get the trash can icon when I long press on the images like I do with all my other pictures. But looking at the example image you posted here, that last pic, of the cat, has the same wheel icon on it like the ones I am trying to delete if that makes a difference or offers a clue I may have overlooked.

    Ah! Those pictures are automatically backed up to the cloud (by Picasa or Google+) and you'll have to manage them through whichever app it is that you use - I guess the Gallery app can only show them to you (since it doesn't 'own' them).
