    - How do i get rid of them

    Welcome to Android Central! They might be in your Google+ Photo albums in the cloud (formerly known as Picasa), and are being synced to your Gallery or Photos app. Go to plus.google.com/photos on your computer browser and see if those photos are there.

    Ok, there are photos there.
    So how do I stop them syncing to my phone?
    That must be chewing through some bandwidth!

    I don't think it uses up much bandwidth, because it's only syncing thumbnails, not the full size photos.

    If you really want to, go to Settings/Accounts-Google/(your Google account) and uncheck Google+ Photos, Gallery, or Picasa.
