How to delete photos from your Google+ albums

Google+ logo

I spent a long time today trying to figure out how to delete individual photos from my albums in Google+.  It’s easy to do, but not very straight forward.  Generally, if you take a lot of pictures with your phone there are some you just want to throw away.   I couldn’t find the answer by Googling it, so here’s how to delete those unwanted pictures:

  1. When signed into Google+,click the Photos icon in the left sidebar.
  2. My Photos tab defaults to “Photos from your phone” – there is a simple delete button on that page.
  3. Click the Albums tab at the top of the page to explore your albums.
  4. Choose (click on) the album that contains the pictures you want to delete.
  5. Click the down arrow on the More button on the top right of the page.
  6. From the dropdown, you can delete the entire album, but you want to click Organize Album.
  7. Select the pictures you want to delete, and click the Delete button at the top of the screen.
  8. When you are finished, click the Done Organizing button top left, and that’s it.

Here’s a quick screencast:

[Duh, left out the last step – click Done Organizing, but you get the picture.]
