    When I first connected my Canon PowerShot SD880 IS camera to my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 using a connecting cable, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 asked whether to use camera importer or Google photos app. I selected camera importer, but now everytime I connect the Canon camera it automatically opens camera importer. How do I stop this and be able to select Google photos?

    I have Android 6.0.1 installed

    Go to Settings -> Apps -> Camera importer (?) and clear defaults.

    The next time you connect the camera it should ask you to choose an app.

    You'll have to look through the list of apps and figure out which one it is. Is it under Canon? Importer?

    I don't know, but I assure you it is there somewhere.

    I have not been able to find any app that relates to Camera Importer. Is it possible that this is a sub program under either Google or the Samsung tweek of Android 6.0.1 ? If so, is there a program I can run to modify it?

    I haven't a clue. Best guess: try clearing defaults for the Camera app itself.

    I have discovered the answer. It turns out Camera Importer is part of the Google Photos app. In order to undo the problem, I had to uninstall the Google Photos app and then Disable it. Then I plugged the Canon PowerShot SD880 IS camera back in and a Gallary popup appeared and asked me if I wanted to make Gallary the Default App. (which I did). The picture thumbnails loaded perfectly and then I could choose to select one or to import one or more. I re-enabled the Google Photos app but did not select it as the Default App.
