    Just got my Nexus 4 a few days ago. After experimenting with the camera, I tried to delete the samples I'd taken. There are 2 groups of photos: camera & auto-backup. I cannot delete the backed-up pictures; there is no delete option. 2 questions -- how do I get rid of these "auto-backup" pictures, and how do I keep them from being backed up? Thanks for any help!

    I think the backwards way of doing it now is to go to Picasa on the web, login with your Google account, and delete the albums or pics you don't want there. Then refresh your gallery on your phone and it should be accurate.

    They have been deleted from my Google +(as seem on my desktop) but they continue to show up on my mobile. It amazes that the auto backup photo deletion is so cumbersome. I am not asking for the finer points of photo editing. I just want to delete a photo.

    I had the same problem on my Galaxy s4. Although it doesn't actually delete the auto backup photos, here's what I did...

    To keep auto backup album from view, while in the gallery hit menu and choose "Content to display". Then uncheck "Content in Picasa". That way the only pictures in the gallery are the ones you take and of course whatever you download and such.

    Hope this helps.

    Enable or Disable photo Auto Backup

    1) Sign in Google+ /Picasa

    2) Go to Settings
    3) Select Camera & Photos
    4) Touch Auto Backup
    5) Toggle On or Off
    6) no more nasty auto photo back u

    hope that helps For further clarifications you may refer to https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1304818?hl=en

    To remove current back up photos in tablet
    1) go to Apps => settings
    2)scroll down => find heading "device"=> find Application Manager
    3) under Application Manager => Find heading" ALL"
    4)scroll down & search for "Gallery"

    6) click Clear Cache

    voila the current back up pictures u have in your HP disappears.

    If you want to delete Picasa photos from Android:

    Step 1: Unsync and delete from Android. Watch these videos:



    Or read this article with pictures:

    2. Then click on the album > Actions > Delete Album

    I hope this helps. Cheers

    This is how I did it. Go to settings--apps swipe to all. Find picassa uploader and disable it.
    Got to settings--accounts. tap google, tap your google email, uncheck photos
    Go to settings--apps swipe to all,go to gallery and clear cache and data.

    I also went to google search page logged in, and hit more on the top bar, selected photos and deleted all the uploaded pics. ( maybe do this first, I can't remember if I did it first).

    Open your gallery app and presto!

    Well some people don't want their pics floating about cyberspace. I once snapped a shot of my boobs to give to my hubby and it automatically uploaded to some Google picture party in the cloud ( even though I deleted it from my tablet it was still out there)... Nope I do not need to auto back up my pictures, I have the means to back them up myself if the desire strikes.

    Login to your google+ account
    Then go to photos; select the photo and click on trash button.
    After deleting on Google+ goto to your setting application manager then go to gallery and click on cache and clear
    The selected photos will be deleted.
    This worked out for me. ..hopes this helps you too!

    The bit I'm confused with is the difference, if any, between the Picassa web albums and the Google+ backup. Is this all the same thing? I like the idea of the private folder backing up to Google+, but not if the same photos are then being syphoned off somewhere else as well. Can anyone clarify if Picassa (under the umbrella name of 'Google Photos') and Google+ is the same thing with the same single backup location, or is it that these are separate, and if so where the hell is this Picassa folder?

    Maybe this is useful ;
    Go to your https://plus.google.com/photos you may be able to remove your pics in the <Photos> and <Albums> tabs.
    Go to <More >
    Click on the <Auto Backup> from the drop down list
    Remove the Photos there are.
