This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

Have you tried to delete the email from your handheld? – user44496 Nov 4 '13 at 7:09

It is possible that due to it being in your Gmail, and your account being set up on the phone, that when you try to delete it, Gmail resyncs it to your device.

So my advice would be to log into and remove the email from there, making sure you remove it from trash as well. Then attempt to remove the picture from your gallery.
