Look for a folder called DCIM

The external memory card is the SD card you installed.

Yes I know that its the SD Card I put in my phone but when I open my camera,it asks me if I want to store the pictures on the SD Card so if I choose yes,then where would it go ?

To the DCIM folder on your internal sd card unless you choose to use external sd. Check the camera settings

It would go on your SD card ONLY. Not on both.

Omg, I misread " would the pictures be in either of them". I thought you meant both of them. My bad...

Using a usb cord connect your Android to a PC
Your android will ask if you want to enable mass storage mode. Tap enable

Some folders will pop up on the screen

On each window find the DCIM folder. Check it for your pics

If the S4 has a folder called My Files, tap on it. You should see several other folders (All Files, Images, Videos, Music Documents). If you want to access photos that are stored in the phone's internal memory: choose All files, select sdcard0, locate the DCIM folder and select the Camera folder.

Or it could be written this way: My Files/storage/sdcard0/DCIM/Camera

If you want to access photos that are stored on the microSD storage card, use the same method as above: Choose My Files, select All files, this time select extSdCard, locate the DCIM folder and select the Camera folder.

Or it could be written this way: My Files/storage/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera

sdcard0 represents the phone's internal storage, while extSdCard represents the removable microSD card. If you don't have the My Files folder, ES File Explorer is a good alternative.
