How can I stop my Samsung S3 Galaxy battery from draining so fast?

What can I do to stop my Samsung S3 Galaxy battery draining so fast and getting so hot?

You most likely have too many applications running, and will need to turn some off. This is why your Samsung Galaxy S3 battery drains so fast. To correct this, you can press and hold the 'Home' button, and after about three seconds, you should see a list of all apps that are running. To close them, you can just swipe the app picture left or right, and it will close.

How do I clear all photos stored in my Samsung Galaxy S3?

I have deleted unwanted pics from the gallery in the usual way, and also from the photos app, so that I do not find them in my Galaxy S3. However when I connect the cellphone to my laptop, the unwanted pics appear. Normally I can delete pics from my cellphone via my laptop. I must first import them, at which point they can be deleted. These specific pics can not be uploaded because, according to my laptop, they are in an "unrecognizable format". Any suggestions?
