I have uploaded one photo from Google+ application on my Android phone. Although I am pretty sure that I have selected only one Circle while uploading but may be due to some bug it is visible to all Circles. Now I want to change sharing settings for this photo but I could not find this option anywhere. Can anybody help?

I have added (For Photos uploaded from Mobile) as Barry has answered how to change settings for Photos uploaded from the web application – Deependra Solanky Jul 9 '11 at 2:57
Since you're asking about the Android app, this question really should be at Android Enthusiasts. – Al E. Nov 10 '14 at 13:59

You can do this by:

  • Logging in to Google+
  • Selecting the Photos sections

Google+ Photos

  • Select Your albums

Google+ Your Albums

  • Select the album which your picture is in
  • At the top left of the picture there will be an Edit link Google+ Edit Photo
  • Click the Edit link and a popup will appear where you check/amend the visibility. Google+ Edit Photo Sharing Options

Thanks for the detailed answer. But I could see only this "Visible to: Recipients of the original posts" without any edit button. May be due to these photos are uploaded from Mobile App. – Deependra Solanky Jul 9 '11 at 2:52
@Deependra Solanky: I haven't tested it but that would indicate you would have to go to your posts and edit the visibility of the post rather than the photo? I think that is how it works for photos uploaded via mobile. – codingbadger Jul 9 '11 at 5:59
I have also thought the same but could not find a option to edit visibility of post. My bad.. – Deependra Solanky Jul 9 '11 at 10:46

I've found the same thing. It seems you may only be able to alter the visibility with a Windows PC. Seems there is no way of doing it with Android.
