Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Delete Photos via Samsung Kies 3 App in a Windows Computer

You can easily delete unwanted photos from your phone via Gallery app, My Files app or other third-party file manager apps.

If that so, you can connect your phone to Samsung Kies 3 app in your Windows PC and then delete photos from Samsung Kies 3 app. FYI, if you'd like to transfer your photos to your PC first via Kies 3 app before deleting them, you can see the complete steps here.
