How to save photos to SD card on your Android phone

Did you know that you can save the photos you take with your Android phone directly to the SD card? If you’re rocking an old school Galaxy S3, a fancy Galaxy S7 or a sleek new LG G6, you can save storage space on the phone itself by pushing your shots straight to the SD card. Some versions of Android don’t officially let you do this, but it’s still possible. Read on to find out how. Now we’ve added instructions for Android Nougat.

“Keyboard not found – press any key to continue.”

The process for most phones is fairly similar, so it can be applied to almost any Android phone with a MicroSD card slot. While the steps may differ a bit from phone to phone, or between Android versions, you’ll usually find your way if you dig around a bit.

How to save photos to SD card on Android Nougat

Those who are lucky enough to have phones with Android Nougat already can save photos directly to a MicroSD card instead of their phone’s internal storage. There are two ways to enable this, and the first step for both is to insert the MicroSD card and then open the default camera app of your device. Then, you may be presented with a prompt that offers to change your storage settings so that photos will go to the MicroSD card from now on. If you don’t see a pop up box like the one in the left image below, don’t worry. You can also select the MicroSD card as your preferred photo storage method in your camera app’s settings menu. In the below image on the right, you can see what the menu looks like on the LG G6. It should be similar to what you’ll find on any Nougat phone, though. Just go to the camera settings and look for storage options, then select the SD card option.

How to save photos to SD card on Android Marshmallow

The first thing you need to store images directly in the external memory is an SD card. Insert it into your phone, open the camera application and a message will appear asking if you want to change the storage location to the SD card. The same popup occurs on most devices when opening the camera app after inserting an SD card. Agree to your phone’s request and all future pictures will be stored in the external memory card. Simple.

If by some chance this message doesn’t appear, or you have an SD card in your phone already, you need to configure it manually. To do this, you go to Settings in the camera app and scroll down to Storage. That’s where you are able to choose between Device and Memory Card.

Be aware, that on Marshmallow, you now also have the option to format an SD card as internal storage, meaning your photos will automatically be stored on it without doing any of the above. But if you do this, the card will only work on the phone you formatted it on. That means you have to connect your phone to a computer via USB if you want to manually transfer files. The card itself will not be recognized by any other devices. Read more about this here:

How to save photos to SD card on Android 5.0 Lollipop

Android 5.0 Lollipop changed things again, making it easier to set the save location for photos (as well as safer). Apps once again have read and write access to directories on removable storage. All you need to do is make sure your phone has a camera app with an API that makes use of the new permissions. If your stock camera won’t let you save to the SD card, you can download a different camera app. Check the settings in the app and look for a storage option.

How to save photos to SD card on Android 4.4 KitKat

Android 4.4 KitKat doesn’t like SD cards so much and images are saved in the internal memory by default with no easy way to change the save location. One simple solution is to download the MX Camera application in which you’ll find options to select the storage destination for pictures. The app is able to override KitKat’s preferences.

Simply open the application and go to Settings, then Camera and finally Custom save location.

How to save photos to SD card on Samsung devices

Things are made pretty simple here. Just insert an SD card and open the camera app. All being well, you will presented with a window offering you the option to use the SD card as your storage option of choice.

If you don’t happen to see this window, then you can open the Settings menu in the camera app (the gear icon) and scroll down to Storage location, press it and selected Memory card. Job done.

Google's new app to help you save data

Apart from developing the Android system, Google has a a wide range of apps, many of which are pre-installed on your Android device. Google Triangle is the latest app developed by the search engine giant, and it’s only available on Android in the Philippines, for the time being. This new app aims to help you better manage your mobile data consumption.

Not everyone has the possibility of benefiting from unlimited data plans. In the US, this isn’t much of a hindrance, but this isn’t the case in all countries, and for all carriers. That’s why Google has created a new app to help users regulate their data consumption. Currently being tested in the Philippines, Triangle allows you to monitor the data consumption of your apps, just as Android already does, but with the added ability to specifically limit data usage for each app.

The user can then decide to block an app that is consuming too much data. Obviously, this will only be activated when the smartphone is connected to a 3G/4G network, and not Wi-Fi.

Triangle also offers users the possibility to know how much time you spend on an app every day, and its data consumption. The goal is to help users better manage their consumption so as not to exhaust their mobile data plans so quickly. Some carriers that participate in the app have also added a small dose of fun, by giving away data to reward those who use Triangle.

This new app is part of Google’s policy. Google has previously created features to control the use of mobile data, such as the data saver on Chrome, but Triangle takes it a step further by being able to block app usage even more precisely.

Unfortunately, for the time being, it’s unclear whether Google plans to launch the Triangle app in other countries. If you can’t wait, you can still download the APK file

What do you think of Google’s latest venture? Would you like to see the app available in the US?

Opinion by Pierre Vitré

Google should launch all apps globally at the same time
