Look at the Xperia ______ ones along the bottom for the logo..

Or use Google Photos, QuickPic or similar 3rd party photo app

A question to you though, since you're doing a similar task to what I was planning on doing. Did you manage to remove the Play Memories and Globe/Map options from Albums? If so, how did you do it and which apps did you modify?
no, could not find anythinf for maps and play memories...

Because I am not really convinced to unlock bootlader. I think is not the right time to do this.

On mine, it doesn't say Picasa. It says:
Xperia Social Engine Photos
(But I know it's Picasa because it uses the Picasa icon)

For Twitter, there are 3:
Xperia Twitter Setup
Xperia with Twitter
Xperia Social Engine Sharing (Twitter icon)

I don't see Flicker. Where does the updated Album upload to? I've also disabled Album as I don't want it having the ability to upload my stuff with or without my permission. Only thing is, it will popup a message saying Album has stopped working when the camera is accessed but you can just click OK and continue using the camera.

They all say only "xperia social engine photos" and then you have one with facebook icon and one with picasa, what I cant find is the one with flickr icon. I do find it in sd maid pro but it says it is already frozen, still I see the plugin in album

I found another one: Picasa Uploader. There is one that just says Xperia Social Engine (with a blueprint icon). I don't know what that is but it sounds like a generic plugin.

Earlier versions of Album did not have any upload plugin. Or perhaps the Flickr plugin is now integrated into Album?

I have the exact same question about my Z1 Compact.
I cleared everything else but Flickr is still there and I can't find any other app that could be doing this...
