Tech Savvy: How to move photos from a Samsung phone to an SD card – Brainerd Dispatch

Every week we offer to take in questions for Tech Savvy columns and then to search for the answers.
This prompted one reader to ask why we don’t print the questions and answers in our weekly column. Quite frankly, we put out the option each week but it’s been a long time since anyone took advantage of it. We are more than willing to research issues and we can rely on CTC to help us out when regular searching doesn’t help or when real technical skills are required. We aren’t the technical genius type as much as we are tech enthusiasts and consumers of technology.
So our reader said maybe putting in a question would help galvanize other readers to do so and her question wasn’t related to new gadgets and tech as much as it was something a little more used. Namely a 2017 Samsung J7. I use a Dell at work and have a mix of tech at home, but at home, as anyone who reads this column somewhat regularly may know, I am an Apple user at heart. But I’m also a strong believer in continuous learning and I enjoy problem-solving and looking for answers.
Question: How do I get my phone, a 2017 Samsung J7, to download images and video from my phone’s memory to my SD card? I need to free up space on my phone memory.
Answer: So I had to do a little research to come up with the answer to this question and since I don’t have a Samsung, I couldn’t test it myself for empirical knowledge but other folks on the internet had. And this is one of the reasons the internet has great value. I’ve used YouTube to find out how to fix a vacuum and how to change a headlamp on my car. For this one, I relied on checking multiple sources via a Google search and found a checklist for this move with Verizon and checked several YouTube videos to see if they were advocating the same thing. This is one thing we no doubt have in common across platforms is the need for more space, even digital space. For some, that means getting more memory on the phone up front or adding storage space and room for backups in the Cloud, or a combination of both. The photos we take are time capsules of our daily lives and worth the memory and memory space.

There appear to be a couple of ways to go from here. The most simple in a couple of YouTube videos is to put a finger on a photo and hold it to mark it as one to move. Holding on one photo will open an option to select all in the top left hand corner of the screen. Perhaps you want to keep some and move others. In that case, select the photos or video individually by tapping on them.
The SD card should be one of the options.
Tech Made Easy has an easy to follow YouTube video showing it step by step.
I hope this helps. We always welcome questions to Tech Savvy and appreciate this one. So if there are others, just drop us a note and we’ll try to find an answer.
