Default How to stop Google+ profile photo sync

Ok so long story short, I started using Google+ last night then went to bed. Then wake up to find an undeletable photo album called "profile pictures" and a little Picasa image on the top left.

I've gone to accounts and disconnected the sync feature but it still shows up!

This is really pushing my OCD to the limit...

Have you tried going in from a computer and deleting it?

I had some Picasa showing up on mine though I do not have anything set up to sync. Tried to delete the images with the Picasa logo next to them but was unable to do so.

Ok so I did Simons advice and deleted my profile picture but it was still there, so I went to Application Manager and turned off the gallery app, turn it back on and when I went back to it the Gallery app and no more pic!

O i see another person that doesn't like them photos open for everyone . Now that you got them off the device you may want to check the settings online . I say this cause it was brought to my attention that the photos of me and my girl was online and everyone can see when i looked o o dip i had to change my settings to just me . So check your your settings

I tried hiding the album before I did my trick but it wasn't an available action when I selected it. I don't allow Google or anyone to automatically sync my photos to them, goodness forbid I upload a not so decent pic, lol.
