I have a galaxy S5 smartphone. I am deleting photos in

Customer Question
I have a galaxy...

I have a galaxy S5 smartphone. I am deleting photos in gallery to boost memory storage. Several photos have an icon that I don't recognize in the lower left hand part of the photo, accordingly, the normal "delete" function does not appear and I can't delete the photo. Can you help me with my desire to delete these photos?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Galaxy?

Where do I locate that?

Technician's Assistant: The Smartphone Technician will be able to walk you through that. How long has this been going on with your Galaxy? What have you tried so far?

Just this week. I have researched the manual. Gone to my files and deleted all down loads. The target photos remain without the function to delete.
