Auto-syncing photos from phone to Nexus 7
I'm a relatively new Android user so excuse the silly questions.
I'm with Virgin Mobile (trying to cut costs; just became a father) and I have a LG Optimus Slider. When I take pictures with the camera they go to my stock Gallery app.
I got my Nexus 7 several weeks ago, and now I want to use it to show my friends and family pictures of my son taken with my camera phone. The stock Gallery app shows up on the Nexus also. Now I'm confused but I expected since the app appears on both platforms that it would sync automatically, or that when I refresh it from either end it would, but it apparently does not.
Am I missing something? If Gallery does not sync from my phone to my Nexus 7, what is the most convenient way to do this? I want the pictures to be synced effortlessly, automatically. I don't need editing features, just something to carry it across platforms. What's the easiest way to do this?

Re: Auto-syncing photos from phone to Nexus 7
Hopefully your phone should work similar to mine (it's a Samsung on ICS)
Go into settings and then accounts, not sure if all these are needed but make sure photos, picasa and instant upload are ticked (might need google +also), I have everything ticked in this list
go into Google+ app and check settings, make sure instant upload is ticked
On your N7 check the same options
when you take a picture, this will be autouploaded to a gallery called 'Instant Upload' which is a private gallery for your viewing only and will be synced with all your devices
all your other galleries should now also be in sync
I have mine set as above and have the same galleries on both my phone and my N7, both in sync with Picasa/G+ Photos
For Offline you will need to manually say on the N7 which galleries you want as offline
Hope some of that is some help
