Recommended from online:

Go into Settings----->Accounts and Sync---->Tap Google----->Uncheck "Sync Picasa Web Albums".

Go into Settings----->Application Manager---->"All" tab----->Find Gallery and tap "Clear Data"

I think your next step is going into the gallery app and tapping clear data. I believe it will only delete the cache and not your pictures.

I tried it all I could find and never done anything to me until I found this, specially the second line made it finally possible to delete and on two different places. Deleted it all and completely to make sure Data and Cache as well, now it can start normal again and room is more now too for new stuff.Anything else is on my PC anyway so nothing really got lost at all but gained it all

by the way, I did it on Samsung galaxy II plus

Ok turns out you have to go to your Google Photos and delete it there first so then it'll automatically delete from your gallery.

probably you are using a kind of cloud service on your phone. you should inactive Galary sync in your cloud services. find it in the setting part of your phone and inactive it. then go to galary and do deleting.

You can easily delete pictures from file manager instead of photo related apps.

I figured out how to fix it. Samsung has this thing where they sync images back to your phone so when you delete it, it automatically goes back into your phone or tablet however there is a simple way to fix this. How I fixed this problem for me, I went to the gallery app,under settings I turned off samsung sync and it automatically fixed my problem. I hope it works out for you guys
