    1.) Is there a way to have the Note2 not download photos into the Gallery that are uploaded to my Google + account?

    2.) If I delete the photos were downloaded to my gallery, will it also delete them from my G+ acccount?

    Thanks.

    Your photos have not been downloaded, they are in the cloud. You can change the gallery to show only on device photos and video by using the menu button and choosing "view by" from the main page. You'll see your options there.

    I just spent the day yesterday uploading all of my photos and videos to Picasa, which is what Google+ uses, so that I'd have easy access for viewing. I'm loving how the gallery makes it so easy to have every digital photo I have since the 90's all in my hand.

    You should see it as a benefit.

    The "view by" does not seem to remember the next time when you start Gallery. It defaults to All every time I go into Gallery.

    I got rid of Google+ pictures by un-sync them in google account. After that I have to clear the data in Gallery app.
