    Yea,i had the same thing happen. Just go to their website,sign in to your already created account for you,delete all the pics,then refresh your google account in the "accounts and sync" option,it should delete the albums and the pictures.

    Go to settings, Google sync, and make sure the box next to Picasa is checked. Sync. You can always uncheck the box after.

    Bonjour, j'ai lu vos prcdents posts, mais bien des questions subsistent. Bon je raconte depuis le dbut : quand j'ai eu mon tl, mes photos allaient dans la galerie depuis que mon fils m'a dit que Google+ tait bien, je me suis abonne. Seulement pendant mes vacances, j'ai reu des messages me disant que des photos taient prtes tre transfres sans que je demande quoique ce soit. Depuis, une partie de mes photos de vacances se retrouve dans un fichier "instant upload" et toutes les photos que je prends actuellement aussi. Je retrouve galement une partie des photos sur Google+ sur mon portable, mais rien sur mon compte dans je me connecte sur l'ordi. J'ai essay dsesprment de passer par Picasa, mais il n'a fait que rajouter des photos de l'ordi sans reprendre celles de "instant upload". Ce qui me contrarie, c'est que si je dcide de garder Google+, j'aimerais bien voir les photos (en priv) en classant les photos en album quand je suis sous l'ordi (les photos sont ple mme sous google+ sous S3).
    Si par contre, je voudrais savoir si je dsinstalle Google+ et Picasa, vais je retrouver toutes mes photos y compris les dernires qui je pense sont uploades dans ce fichier "instant upload". Les fonctions de retouches photos peuvent tre sympas sous Google+ et de partage avec les amis proches. Je suis vraiment trs contrarie d'autant que dans mon entourage personne ne peut me rpondre (car S2 et Picasa, Iphone et facebook....).
    Ah autre chose, quelqu'un peut me dire comment rcuprer un mmo dict avec SVoice, il m'indique mmo enregistr mais o dois-je aller pour le relire ? Je comptais l'utiliser pour mes courses ou mes tches par exemple sans utiliser forcment une application tlcharger (trop spcifique). J'ai essay de regarder dans Smmo mais je ne vois rien....

    Translated by Moderator using Google Translate:

    Hello, I read your previous posts, but many questions remain. Well I said from the beginning: when I got my phone, my pictures were in gallery since my son told me that Google+ was good, I subscribed. Only during my vacation, I received messages saying that the photos were ready to be transferred without my request anything. Since a part of my vacation photos is found in a file "instant upload" and all the photos I take now too. I also found some photos on Google+ on my laptop, but nothing on my account I log in on the computer. I tried desperately to go through Picasa, but it has only added pictures of the computer without taking those "instant upload". What irks me is that if I decide to keep Google+, I would like to see the photos (privately) by classifying photos album when I'm on the computer (pictures pell same as in S3 google+ ).
    If cons, I would like to know if I uninstall Picasa and Google+, will I find all my photos including the latest which I think are uploaded file in this "instant upload". Photo retouching functions can be cool in Google+ and share with close friends. I am very upset that all around me nobody can answer me (because S2 and Picasa, Iphone and facebook ....).
    Oh another thing, can someone tell me how to retrieve a memo dictated with SVoice, it tells me memo recorded, but where do I go to read it? I intended to use for my race or my tasks without necessarily such an application to download (too specific). I tried to look in SMEMO but I see nothing ....

    You should a have an app called 'google settings', open it. Then click on 'google+', 'instant upload' (under photos and videos) and slide the switch at the top from on to off. This will stop the creating of the albums, then go into your gallery, click the menu button on you phone and select the album you want to dlete. Click 'delete'.

    I was able to delete the Instant uploads folder from my galaxy s3 by the following manner:

    1. On your phone, go to Settings - Accounts - Google
    2. Click on your Gmail account shown.
    3. Scroll all the way to the bottom and un-tick the checkbox against Sync Picasa Web Albums
    4. On your computer, go to your Google+ account (same account used to setup your phone), navigate to photos and delete the album "Instant Uploads".
    5. Follow steps 1 to 3 but on the last step, tick the checkbox against Sync Picasa Web Albums
    6. Go to your gallery and the "Instant Uploads" folder should have been removed.

    For those of you who are unable to see the check boxes when you get to step 3, your sync has been disabled. You can enable sync by the following steps:
    1. Go to Settings - Data usage
    2. Hit the menu key (the touch key on the left side of the Home button below the screen)
    3. From the menu, click on "Auto sync data" and hit OK on the pop up info that follows.

    Hopefully this will work for you as it did for me.
