Managing photos and videos - moto g5s plus

How do I manage photos and videos?

Share photos or videos

You can wirelessly share one, multiple, or all items from any Photos view, sending them as email or message attachments, uploading to the cloud, or using device-to-device connections like Bluetooth.

In addition to sharing wirelessly, you can transfer photos to your computer with a USB connection. You can also move photos from internal memory to SD card.

To share wirelessly:

  1. Open the Photos app.
  2. Navigate to the thumbnail of the item you want to share.
  3. Select the item to share:
    • To select one item, touch & hold its thumbnail.
    • To select multiple items, touch & hold the first thumbnail, then touch the others to select them.
  4. Touch Image and select the way you want to share.

Delete photos or videos

If you've just taken the photo or video, swipe the viewfinder to the left. Or, open the Photos app and open the photo or video to delete.

Touch Image (if you don't see the icon, touch the screen first).

Tip: You can try using a third-party app to recover recently deleted photos or videos. Search for “file recovery” in Play Store
