Ever since Google implemented high-resolution contact pictures (I believe), whenever I upload a new picture for one of my contacts (using Gmail's web interface), it appears as a new, separate, private album on my Picasaweb account, having the (upload?) date as album caption.
So now when I open Picasaweb's interface in my browser, I see all these faces appearing, instead of my beautiful photo album covers. It's a bit of a mess, really. Guess I should be thankful the albums are private by default !
How can I prevent/undo this ? I haven't found any option in Picasaweb's, Gmail's, Google+'s or even Big G's dedicated contacts.google.com's settings page.
This also roughly coincides with my switch from an Android phone to a Windows Phone 8 device. Could it possibly be caused by a synching issue there ? Only app related to Picasa/Google Photos is the PhotoCasa app, but that doesn't have any option, nor anything else that could suspect it to be the culprit.
BTW: the 'profile picture albums' do not appear on Google+ automatic uploads.
