Default How do I eliminate the Picasa albums sync

I just got my 32gb Nexus 7 and the 'Gallery' is driving me insane. I've signed out of my g+ account and the photos are still sitting in my 'Gallery.' I don't want these to show up, basically ever, so how do I make this not happen?

I don't see an option in my account settings to turn off Google Photos sync like I see on my Evo 3D. So, help!!!

Settings>Accounts, select Google>Select your account>Turn off Google Photos sync

Then Settings>Apps>All>Gallery and clear data.

This worked for me.

Thanks, got the gallery cleared.

My sync is not working for some reason. Whenever I do the Settings>Accounts, select Google>Select your account> it shows 'Sync is OFF' and I don't see anything to turn it on like I see on my phone. Weird.

Thanks, guys.

Anyone know what the Sync Internet does? It always shows 'Failed'.

Doesn't it do your chrome bookmarks and sync the pages you have open on chrome on your PC? Do you use chrome on the PC? If no, maybe that's why it shows as failed?

Is the master sync enabled? I'm not sure where this is in the settings, but on the power bar widget it's the second from the right.

You must have sync enabled to individually choose which items sync and which don't. If sync is not enabled, you can only choose to sync now. I also had to use a widget for sync on/off because I couldn't find it in settings either. Where the heck is it in settings? I've chosen which items I want to sync, but I leave sync off and sync when desired.
