    At a loss.
    Ok, so on Friday, I uploaded a pic of my friend to my phone so I could set it as a contact picturehowever, now, when I open my Gallery..it shows as a folder on its own..called Profile Pics (draft) I have 4 folders inside of galleryCamera, download, sd card and now Profile pics. I dont want this photo to show up when I open Galleryhe is my husbands friends and it looks like Im obsessed with him and Im not!
    Tried everything. Went through all files and photos saved on both the phone and the sd card..but it seems to be nowhereI even deleted his photo off of contact card, but it is still there..

    Ive selected the pic and tried to trash it but I cantI even edited it by cropping it to a black square, but when I go back to gallery, there it is
    Beside his photo is a symbol that appears to be for Picasa, even though I dont have that installed on my phone. So it looks like I tried to set it as my profile pic for Picasa, but it didnt work so it is in limbo..HELP!
    Where can I find this to delete it?
    I did a search for Picassa and foudn teh pic there and delted it, but it still shows up in a folder called " profile pictures'..how do I get to this folder?

    Try this:
    Settings > Accounts and sync (my phone isn't in english, so it's something like that) > Google... uncheck the Picasa sync.

    Lol! I went into my gallery to see if I could find something that would help you and this same folder appeared to me too, but with my profile pic from google.
    I can only think it has something to do with G+, since I just signed up there a few days ago.
    Do you use G+? Is your friends pic there?

    Picasa is a photo cloud service owned by Google and is now integraded with android when you do a profile pic or install Google plus your pica a account is the same as your Gmail so go to pica a .com and edit it there BC it just simply copied it to the Google server

    You could divorce you husband and marry the other guy, so your perceived obsession is justified.

    ...Or try installing a different file explorer app and see if that app can find the picture. You could also try pulling out the SD card and see if the picture still shows up on your phone, or you could even put the SD card in a PC/laptop and see if you can find the picture that way.

    How did you upload the profile pic?
    Also, do any of the pics in that album look familiar? Are the from Facebook?
    Sometimes when u use apps to upload pics, it will automatically save them in your gallery

    I have no idea how I did all that! not sure how it ended up there in the first place.

    BUT, I did figure out the problem...I didn't realize that my Google account is synced with Picasa... because I don't use Google +, I didn't think they were connected (Google and picasa) which I why I wasn't thinking that Livia's advice was relevent, turns out she was right! ...so I happened on this thread, and it helped me solve it!

    Thanks everyone who tried to help me.

    It can be many things related to accounts synced on your phone. I had the same problem and I realized it was my Google+ account.
