Default how do I delete pictures from gallery?

at some point all the pictures(1000+) from my computer got uploaded to my phone. I go into gallery and long press a photo and the delete option is not available like it is for pictures Ive taken with the triumph camera as well as album artwork(which I just deleted from gallery) from mp3 uploads.

I go into astro manager and the files do not even show up there.

Also can't find them when I connect my phone to my pc and have usb storage on, once again, see everything else, but not these pictures that got uploaded somehow from my pc to the phone

One more thing, I did switch my mini sdhc card, Im trying to access them from the old card now and its still not working

WOWSERS, what a prob you've got.
Seems like you may have issues with the new card- could be a rotten apple. You wouldn't be able to get them on the old car if they're stored on the new card...I don't think the images are 'trapped' in the internal memory itself. Try unmounting the card via the options then looking via usb connection. There are only so many places 1000 pictures could be hiding- try searching by image format type on your computer to find them. And if all else fails, do a backup of the whole monstrosity and reformat the car - which should be done via the device before putting anything on it, as I've been told. GL

The pics are there no matter which card I have in.

I went into settings-apps-manage apps-gallery.

I pressed clear data it then shows 0mb, I then open up gallery it erased all the pics I want gone and only left my camera photos. I close gallery and reopen and all the pics are coming back, like it is re-syncing somehow. Im nowhere near my pc right now

If it is picasa, you can turn off the sync (under your google account sync) with that account without deleting them from your computer/web. Off the top of my head, I am not sure where it would save the synced files for you to delete. But once you find that and turn the sync off it won't happen again.

Do you blog? If so, every time you post a picture, it is added to your account in an album somewhere in Picasa. I don't know the gritty details beyond that really.

When using Android to hold pictures, I usually use QuickPic... fast, quick and dirty. And it doesn't link to Picasa.

Seems like the synced files are under android/data/com.cooliris.media on your sd card...but you shouldn't have to delete them after you turn off sync...should just go away

un-syncing did the trick. That google picasa is pretty invasive.

I use it to back up the photos from my phone, but then again I do enough to it I hate to manually back them up everytime I switch ROMs or use a backup. I don't use it other than that though. So it doesn't sync 1000+ photos all the time.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. This has been kicking my ass for over a day now. Deleted my ancient Picasa acct and albums and all those pics disappeared.

It was driving me crazy not being able to find the folder those pics were in on a root MT.

Yup- It's nice to have the option of seeing all those old photos if you want right in your gallery- for example, I did a factory reset yesterday that wiped all my personal data (internal SD on my Galaxy S3), but since I have Picasa synced & I have all my photos from my phone automagically uploaded, I can still access those photos if I want.

One bit of warning I will give- I turned off background data for the Gallery app because I looked at my data usage and it had eaten almost 300 MB of my 4G data (have upload sync of photos set to wifi only, so couldn't be that) presumably syncing stuff like the Picasa photos...
