    Default can't delete pic in my gallery

    Hello, maybe someone can help me. When I go to my gallery, there are 6 folders: Camera, Download, Pictures, sdcard, March 16 2013, and Profile Photos. In the last two folders, I can't delete the pic files. It simply does not give me the option. I tried hooking the phone up to the computer but I can't find the files that way either. The two folders in question have a different symbol on them then the other folders in the gallery. The others have a little file icon in the corner, but these two have a opening/closing lens looking icon.

    Hopefully this makes sense to someone. TIA.

    Welcome to Android Central! The ones in question are from your Google+/Picasa cloud albums. You can delete them either by using the Google+-related Photos app (not Gallery), or going to Google+ on your desktop browser, accessing your Photos there, and deleting the ones you don't want.

    Yep, that did it! Thanks!

    How did those pictures get there?

    The one from the folder with a date was presumably a photo you took using your phone that was auto-uploaded or manually uploaded by you. The profile pics are the ones you use for your Google+ account picture.
