    Does anybody have any idea how to delete synced Google+ picture albums out of my photo gallery? When I go to gallery, there are all these picture albums off of my Google+ that I DO NOT want on my phone. And it will not let me delete these albums or the pictures in the albums. Also, I deleted all the pictures on Google+ in hopes of it also removing them from my phone as well, but it didn't work. Any ideas? Thanks!

    If they're gone from Google+, can't you just unsync Google+ pictures in your Google account? I have my Google+ pics unsynced, and they don't show up in my phone. Maybe also unsync Picasa?

    You have to delete them on your Google+ account and then resync if they don't disappear shortly on their own. Then turn off syncing. Also, turn up auto upload in Google+ or else every picture you take will upload to your Google+ account and also appear in a folder called "uploaded photos".

    Search for picasa using google.

    Your pics will be and are stored in a web album in picasa.
    (yuo may need to be logged into google+ for this)
    Delete each album or pic you dont want by clicking into the album, then select action from the drop down menu above and then delete album. once all your unwanted albums or pics are deleted from picasa, they will not appear in the Nexus4 gallery.
    It did my head in and in the end i found this solution. also be careful as the default setting in google+ is to upload your pics instantly. this means any pic you take is uploaded to google+ and picasa.

    There's no need to delete the albums in Google+ (or Picasa), just clear the sync data from your phone following the steps on this post:
    almost a technocrat: How to removed synced Picasa photos from Samsung Galaxy Nexus photo galery

    It worked on my Galaxy Nexus. In case you are wondering, I didn't lose the photos stored in my phone's memory (the ones I took with my phone's camera). Only the ones that were sync'ed from the online albums were gone from the Gallery.

    Can someone verify a few thing for me. I take lots of pictures and have instant upload enabled to Google+. My Nexus 4 is rapidly filling up it's onboard memory space (16GB). I want to start purging my local pictures in my camera roll. I have instant upload on and the pictures are already online in the instant upload folder.
    1. If all of my camera roll photos are already uploaded to Google+ via instant upload, can I delete those locally and the pictures still remain online in the Google+ instant upload or other folders?
    2. Is there a way to keep auto-upload on, and look at your online Google+ folder pics via gallery, but not have the real entire photos downloaded to your local phone (i.e. downloading the pic each time like looking at an online photo gallery)? It seems to me that all of the Google+ folders' photos are stored full size locally.
    I do not see how Google selling low storage Nexus devices works with their Google+ online picture storage if it is a 2-way synch for all of your folders' pictures.
    Any clarification appreciated.

    SETTINGS>ACCOUNTS>GOOGLE>*your email*>uncheck "GOOGLE PHOTOS" ; and anything else that you don't need. Then go to SETTINGS>APPS> find GALLERY and hit "CLEAR DATA" That should do that trick.
