Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Copy or Move Photos From One Album to Another in the Stock Gallery App in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

By default, all photos you have taken with the Camera app will be saved in an album named Camera in Gallery app. Since the photos in this album may have different categories, you'll probably need to organize them by copying or moving them to the appropriate album so that the photos with the same category will be placed in the same album, for instance you can copy or move all of your family photos you have taken with the Camera app to the album named Family. As a note, copying photos will duplicate the photos to the new album without deleting the original ones, while moving photos will move the photos to the new album and deleting the original ones.
