How to remove albums and photos off Google Plus?

Here’s a question from one of our readers:

I’ve put up quite a few pictures on Google Plus, can you tell me how to delete one of them?

Thanks for the question. Deleting a photo on Google Plus is very simple, that said, maybe hiding the album or photo will do the trick.

Decided to wipe off your pics? Make sure you have a backup if needed, and follow these steps:


  • Login to Google Plus.
  • Click on ‘Photos’ at the top bar and choose ‘Your Albums’ at the left side of the screen.
  • Now, click on the album you are looking to delete and choose ‘Delete Album’.

If you are looking to delete individual photos instead, go to the album and then to the photo you want to delete and click on ‘Delete photo’. You can also delete the photo in theatre mode by clicking on ‘Action’ > Delete photo.
