    Default Rouge Pics!?

    Hey gang, having an issue with rouge App/facebook/etc pictures showing up on my Note 3. I generally use the Google 'Photo' app (came loaded on phone new) to view the pics I've taken. However it's loaded with app logos and pics I didn't take, some being of people I dont know or have ever seen! I have gone and deleted a bunch but they seem to keep coming back.
    Can anyone shed any light on this and how to stop it? PS. My wife's Note3 doesn't seem to have this issue.
    Thanks for any help!
    Robert

    I would guess thumbnails of peoples profiles from Facebook.

    If you can find the folder(s) that contain those pictures, create an empty file named ".nomedia" in the root of each folder. That will stop your gallery and media player from finding them and any media files.

    this happened to me also, I discovered that the pictures added to my google photos were from apps. I deleted the app and the problem was solved.

    You deleted google photos app? Reinstalled then it didn't do it?

    No I deleted the app that caused the pics to be backed up - in my case it was some file manager i had downloaded. I have also had swiftkey keyboard pics backed up before, but i deleted the pic and they never came back again.
