    Amy, you need to use a file explorer app, to move your photos. If there's not one installed, I suggest ES3 or Astro, both available in the play store.

    I have a link in my signature that will take you to quite a few suggestions on how to cut/copy/move/paste files.

    There may well be one. Check your apps for "Files" or something similar. Not sure what Samsung installs on their devices.

    Both the ES3 and the Astro managers have instructions under "Help", in the settings menu.

    Well, you can either get the file manager downloaded like other members have already talked about es file explorer and all but I would say if you are running stock ROM over your device then you must have file manager installed try looking more closely for a folder option.
