    For Picasa do you mean you unchecked the sync setting for Picasa in Accounts - Google.

    The way Android works, a program called Media Scan scans storage when you start the phone, and makes a list of all the media files on the phone. Google+, Picassa, Photo, Gallery and all other media apps use that list to find photos, songs, whatever they're looking for.

    You can't scan only for Gallery but not for Google+. Photos aren't in Google+, Picassa or Gallery, they're scattered all over the phone, and listed by Media Scan, so you can't scan only photos in Gallery - there's no such thing. Backing up photos means backing up the photos on your phone. All the ones scanned by Media Scan.

    If you want only selected photos backed up, you can select the photos you want in Gallery (Menu/Select, then select each one), then share them to Drive. (The phone can't read your mind, but you can.)
