Have in mind that when I take photos I might take 2 shots of same instance. I arrive home, start wi-fi. All photos are synced with photos. Now - looking into gallery I delete some of them - they were bad photos. How can I make sure that when I delete an image it is also removed from photos application?

    Try using folder sync. One of the reviews has your use case (by Anssi)

Do not use Gallery to manage your photos. Use the Google Photos app to manage your photos on your device, when you delete a photo in the Photo app it is deleted from all attached devices as well, including locally and the Google Photo storage.

  • but still then the photos from gallery(so real files on device) won't be removed, right? Commented Apr 25, 2016 at 10:15
  • @AlexaAdrian Not on my Moto G3 with Marshmallow... If I delete a picture in the Photo app, it deletes it from the device (thus Gallery as well), Drive/Photo account, and all linked/synced devices. Tested and verified.
