    Camera Pics backup question

    Whenever I take a picture with the camera, it then sends me an e mail to my gmail that a picture has been backed up. Is there a way to stop this from happening? It seems silly to have this happen each time I take a picture.

    Sounds like a Google+ thing. Disable it.

    Yeah there's a setting somewhere, probably in Google+. I think I get that email every two weeks or something ("You have 260 photos ready to share on Google+!"). Certainly NOT every time I snap a pic.

    Go to Settings -> Accounts (tab) -> Select "Google" account, then tab on it and select (or unselect in this case) what you want synced.

    I did that..sorta got to GOOGLE and clicked on it-don't really see where to check or un-check. If instead of clicking on Google, I go to the backup and reset option instead it gives me a choice of "back up my data" (which is presently checked), Auto restore (presently checked), but i don't seem to find where it will effect the pictures I take.

    I went into Google + notifications...photos/ then I unchecked "photos added from auto backup"...But I'm not sure if that's it.

    Follow those instruction exactly. Make sure when you get to "Google" that you tap on YOUR account a the top (right below "Accounts" and right above "Privacy").

    I am still getting a notification in G mail that I have "10 new photos ready to share". I have followed the instructions above, and unchecked:sync Google photos, sync Google+, sync Picasa web albums. Anything else I am supposed to un-check, as these didn't help.
