    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... :thinking:

    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. :p
