    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.

    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.
