    I received unwanted photos as an attachment to an email which I opened in my Samsung Galaxy S3 (SGS3). The photos were opened in the SGS3's photo 'gallery', and then deleted from there and from the SGS3's photo app. in the usual way There is currently no trace of the photos that I can find on the SGS3. However when the SGS3 is connected to my MacPro laptop, the photos pop up on the laptop. I have successfully uploaded other photos from the SGS3 into the laptop and then deleted them from the SGS3 via the laptop, but the photos at issue here can not be uploaded, because they are in an "unrecognized format". The photos therefore are stored somewhere in my SGS3. Any suggestions re how to remove them?

    Welcome to Android Central! It might be a thumbnail. Using MyFiles or any other file manager app, go to /DCIM/.thumbnails/, and see if it's there. Delete it from there if you find it.
