Sure, "Quickpic" available from the Google Play Store should work.

Here's the link-->

It just let me move my music to my SD card but when i tried to move my pictures it said moved. When i checked though they did not move, they are still all on my phones memory storage..??

On your phone, there should be an icon that says "My Files."
Open that and look for the folder that contains your pictures.
Select the ones you want to move and when you press the MOVE option, it will let you navigate through your phone again.
When that happens, look for something along the lines of "external_SD."
Generally, that is your memory card.
Select the folder, if any, in that area and press MOVE again.
After a few seconds, the pictures should be on your SD card.

Navigate to My Files > sdcard > DCIM > camera - tap and hold the camera folder until you see a list of five options - select Move. Move the folder to extSdCard.

Scroll through the list of folders and locate the DCIM folder, locate and tap on the Camera folder, if no folder exists, in the upper right hand corner, tap the button Move here and your pictures will be transferred onto your 8 GB microSD card.

By default, any pictures you take will automatically be stored on your 8 GB microSD storage card.

You can download a great file manager from the PlayStore for free called "PowerGrasp"
it gives the ability to move files to any part of the phone if you know what your doing. If you know how to move files on a computer then using PowerGrasp should be no problem. It's also a great way to move files to your notification or ring tones sections of the internal memory to have songs or sound files as your ringer or notification sounds.
