You probably mean the instant uploads. That's the picasa web algum from Google. All you have to do is go to the website and delete the pics from there, then they will dissappear from your phone.

That has annoyed me on my GNex. Isn't it from Google+, though?

This doesn't actually delete the photos, but I know how you can keep them from view in the gallery. While in the gallery, hit menu and choose "Content to display". Then uncheck "Content in Picasa". That way the only pictures in the gallery are only the ones you take and of course whatever you download and such.

This drove me absolutely nuts at first.

Hope this helps!

Footmouth auto backup photo album

I found the pics at picasa and deleted the unwanted ones (this left a few in the picasa album and updated the album cover).
The auto backup folder is still in my gallery with the offending picture as the album cover.
I've tried to add new pictures to the folder and it tells me "unsupported file".
I've looked in ES file manager and I couldn't find the folder.
I'm a photographer using my phone as my portfolio, I need to have control over my folders especially in my gallery.
Thank you in advanced.

Its really simple. Go to settings go to accounts then press google+ account tap on your email and delete it off your phone. That way the pictures wont be on your phone or google+ account

Thumbs up

if you deleted the pics from google+ and they're still showing up in your gallery, just go to settings/more/application manager
then go to ALL, find Gallery & clear the cache

[ [ Phone LG L40G; Tablet Asus TF101. Both run Android 4.0.3 ] ]

None of this works for me.

I cleared the backup album from Picasa. It's gone on line.

But even after clearing data and cache on both devices, it's still there. On both devices.

How to Remove Picasa Albums From Your Gallery | Android.AppStorm

Thank you for this useful link.
It was bothering me, why some pictures still remained in the Gallery on the phone, although I deleted them from Picasa Web Albums.
All I had to do is step 2 in the link, to clean the Gallery app's cache.
Now the Auto Backup folder is updated, and doesn't contain pictures which have been removed from Picasa Web Albums.
Very simple solution.

Best regards
