    When I select, cut ,and paste my pics, it just copy it to the folder and still sit in th original folder which result in duplicates.

    Deleting it from original file, delete the copied ones as well.

    Please advise

    Thank you

    Android is a malware magnet,

    iPhone is inefficient.
