Default Delete photos from instant upload

I have a folder called "instant uploads". It's full of all the pics I took on my last phone, the bionic. There are a couple inappropriate photos in there and I can't delete any of them. I'd really like to delete some of them so I don't pass off future girlfriends. Please help....

The moment I snap a photo I can find it in my dropbox computer in the camupload folder

just make sure you have dropbox installed on your computer then go into that folder and delete the inappropriate ones

I have the same issue. My instant upload folder has the Picasa icon on it, but I uninstalled Picasa before I took the pictures in this folder and they aren't in my Dropbox folder either

"Instant Upload" is from the Google+ app. Go into settings, and turn off instant upload. You can delete pics in the app.

It was deleted off the album on the app, but not the phone. Super inconvenient and I'm thinking it might be a deal breaker on this phone.... I just wanna delete a simple photo.... Not too much to ask, right?

Clear the data on the gallery app (drag the app to the 'i' in the app drawer screen for quick access)

It won't delete anything else, I've just done it myself

I'm having this same problem. So clearing the data WON'T delete the photos that I have on the SD card?

Thumbs up Solution

[SOLUTION] : Smile.. i just find the way to make the album from web i dont want shown on my tablet... i using galaxy tab 7.0 plus... Took me a few hours to think, until i delete gmail acc, the album still exist..

Here we go.. :

1. Go to settings (phone/tablet settings)

2. On left Panel, see [Personal] >> Accounts and sync

3. Manage accounts : There ur can see acc (email ur use for other app). Before go here, make sure u got another backup gmail acc. Click ur email which contain ur photo album at website. Then [Remove account] - Can see at top right screen.

4. Now select new gmail account u just create. Then click [Sync now] at the top right screen..

5. Then, try go see gallery if still exist. ;-)

My not so Stellar Samsung Stellar is the same way. I was using Yahoo weather for awhile. When I went into my Gallery, there were two photos sent there from the weather app.( Not sure why.) They're Instant Upload photos, and I cannot delete them at all. Not bashing Android, but Windows phone is no way near as much of a headache to do simple tasks as this phone.
I still like the Android OS for what it can do out of the box, but it certainly can be frustrating on other levels where it should not be.

Hi I hope its not too late. Y had the same problem y solved this way: In the folder Files, got into DCIM and pressed the left button (where options are, like share, delete, order) look for "More" "Configuration" and click the option "show hidden files". Go back one time and instead just "Camera" folder you will see one more called ".thumbnails". Get into that folder y erase all fhotos you dont want to have AND you must to erase too the file ".thumbnaildata654654" (you cant see that file but in the details I realized its the problem because of the size, its like a backup). Y looked in the web and you can erase the thumbnails files without any problem. Good luck!

Default Delete Instant Upload photos from Android device

I called Sprint and spoke to a tech. What you need to do is go to your Gmail on the web browser in desktop mode. Click on the tab that says "more", then click on the tab that says "drive." Make sure you're still in desktop mode on the "Welcome to Google Drive" screen. On that screen you're going to want to select the "more" tab again and a drop down selection box appears and you want to select the "photos" option. Once in there, you should be able to delete single photos or entire albums from instant upload. Once deleted here, they no longer appear on your device. I just did it, and it worked like a charm.

Good luck!

Found this on another forum...it worked! I was so nervous I was going to lose pics on sd card but they were fine

Those are located on the Cloud. You will need to figure which Cloud service it is and stop it syncing. Once this is done go into Settings/Application manager, move over to the right and then down to the Gallery. Tap the Gallery listing and Clear cache, Clear date and force stop. Go back and open the Gallery and they should be gone.

Default picasa

Just to add to the mix lol.I had this problem at first as everything was uploading to picasa which was good for me but I didn't want every single picture as some come out rubish. You cant delete them through the phone only on the PC with Picasa.But I downloaded Picasa tool and you can manage everything from in that app through the phone including deleting and creating folders. Very simple to use.Hope this helps some of you

In order to assist you with your photos problem, can you post more pics of the girl in the Messaging folder? Thanks!
