So I just updated to jellybean and I noticed that the gallery settings has syncing options I have all syncing disabled well atleaast I thought I did but my google account said it did a sync today. They all say disabled under settings but in gallery app my google account has a green sync button next to it. Where in the hell is it syncing to and from?

update:so I've been reading that the stock gallery auto syncs to web services can anyone confirm this? Also I definitely can't seem to disable it. Account is definitely disabled in settings menu under sync, just enabled in the gallery

Do you have a sd card in your device?

There's a problem called "Media Scanner," don't know if this is the issue you've been having- however I had it at first. Was able to get rid of it tho!
I had all my music on my SD Card (40GB) and it constantly scanned/ tried to sync.

If this isn't the problem- check to see what services are running, and then you can assess which might be problematic

I do have an sd card installed but I dont think its that it seems to be a gmail account syncing but I have all accounts disabled in settings heres a screen shot of the gallery settings with syncing seemingly active

Make sure ur google account is set not to sync picasa. Then
Go to the gallery app in SETTINGS, APPLICATIONS. Then clear cache and data. Should be good to go.

Thanks for the reply dont have picasa so not a problem I've disabled sync for everything but contacts under google and cleared the cache and data, but for some reason my google account is sitting in in the gallery settings menu with a highlighted sync symbol next too it. Although I am unsure if it will sync anything I would just like it gone all the same.
Thanks.

Also check your cloud settings under device settings, there might be something there syncing your photos. I had Dropbox in there.

Under Accounts, Google Account, make sure "Sync Picasa Web Albums" is disabled. Then clear the Gallary cache and Data in Application Manager.

Worked for me.
