Edited by Mohsin, Charmed, Eng, Anonymous and 5 others

Samsung Galaxy S4 arrived with new and cool features, they filled it with almost everything one can ask from a Smartphone. Talking about media, Samsung Galaxy S4 was powered by a very cool, easy to use and awesome 13Mp camera with amazing features. These Features Include, Smart Shot, Auto Mode, Dual Shot, very clever Beauty Shot: it enhances the details on the face and put a mask of beauty on the skin only, if you have a mustache or a beard it won't work on those parts. One more is the Sound & Shot option, it allows you to take a photo along with recording a voice/sound for a few seconds, then when you will see the picture you will hear the sound as well. But make sure to record a clear voice otherwise someone will get the wrong meaning of something else. You can let the Mobile record a voice for you if there is any, or you will be given 6 seconds to record the voice.

Questions and Answers

Sound and shot, saving to PC from SD card?

Hi, how can I make sure when I save my SD card photos to my PC, that the sound and shot files are saved over with the sound and the shot all in one? Can I download a program that reads sound/shot files so my computer will recognize them and download them as sound and shot, rather than just a photo?

How do I save "sound and shot " in my PC?

After I uploaded the (sound and shot) image the sound is not working on my PC

You can just copy the Sound & Shot JPG files to your computer. The sound is stored within them. To extract the sound, use SGS4 Audio Extractor by Accalio. Open the file and double-click "SGS4audiojpg.exe" within the archive. Then, select an input JPG file or files by clicking "Browse". Click "Extract files". Click "Quit". You will have audio files that you can play back by double-clicking them in File Explorer while watching the original JPG with any Windows image viewer.
