    You removed it from google plus?

    Go into the accounts under settings and sync google accounts. Kick off a manual sync, it should remove.

    Not de-select. The problem is the photo was ALREADY synced to your phone. You need to delete it in Google Plus, then RE-SYNC it with the phone. It should know there's no folder or photo anymore on the web and replicate that on the phone.

    See the little picasa emblem bottom left. Log into your Google account go into picasa and delete it from picasa. Refresh your phone. My mothers GS3 does the same thing.

    Sounds like your Google Plus albums. When you first set up the Google Plus app on your phone.. it will ask if you would like to turn on Instant Upload.. which automatically uploads all photos from your gallery into Google Plus. You need to turn that off. Also when you create a Google Plus account, it automatically creates a Picasa Web Album account for you.

    First.. turn off the instant upload option by deleting Google Plus app from your phone and re-installing it.. during the setup, turn off instant upload. Also go into Settings>Accounts & Sync.. and uncheck "sync Google Photos"

    To delete the albums from the phone you will need to login to Picasa and remove them. Its the same password and username used for your Google account.
    Sign into https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/myphotos
    From the My Photos page.. click the album you'd like to delete
    Click Actions>Delete Album
    Select OK to confirm and delete

    bingo. Took some doing as that rubbish picasa thing was in french when i went to it on the laptop.

    Now if only I could get that side bar back.... is it a widget or a setting somewhere? It crashed when I clicked an icon for an app I had disabled.

    Thanks for your help.

    Isn't there a some way to delete directly from the Gallery without having to go through a seperate app/site to delete? So not intuitive and annoying...

    No. That's why I turned off instant upload. I have unlimited data and don't mind the upload backup, but I want to be able to control and delete pics easily.
