Depending on quite a few factors:

Remove photos and video to external hard drive, just connect USB cable to a PC or laptop. It will mount your memory, and you can use Copy & paste (then delete original)

Photos and video default location settings are INSIDE the camera app. It's usually called Storage location inside the settings menu

Move apps to SD card by going to Settings > Applications manager > click on the app > button "Move to SD Card"
Also do this with new apps. They will ALWAYS install on your phone. Just do these steps after install is done.
Not ALL apps can do this (like whatsapp), as those are integrated in another manner with the phone (always on, push notification etc). But still over 90% of the apps probably can.

DCIM is the default location, please proceed with copying, it's the correct way.

how to change the default location to mini micro sd card?
KimputerCommented:
Just click on it, it will give you only 2 options, Device/Phone Memory or Memory Card/SD Card.

when i click the camera it showed the setting kind of circle at top and i see Storage option which is already set to  'Memory card' not phone.

I wonder why i still have memory issues in that case even though i have 32 gb card. How to see how much free memory on the card left. please advise
KimputerCommented:
Android > Settings > Storage. It will report the available space on the phone and the memory card.
gudii9Author Commented:
SD card shows 29.7 gb total and available space 7.5 gb.

iw onder why i cannot take a picture when i have 7.5 gb
gudii9Author Commented:
on phone shows total 1.34 gb
appl 1.03gb
pictures videos 636 mb
audio 200 kb
downloads 8.1 mb
misc 38 mb
avaliable 124 mb.

when my phone points to sd card in camera not sure why wont work
KimputerCommented:
First, check if card is really working (copy big movies to the memory card)
Second, still try to clear space on the phone (because it still needs some space for temporary operations).
Check the Camera app again, Switch to phone, make picture, switch to memory card, take another picture.
