My phone is a Samsung GT-S7560M. It downloads pics from emails and sometimes from pic galleries and I cannot delete them. I have had it looked at by your personel in the kiosk in two different locations. No one can delte these photos. Can you tell me how and also how to stop the phone from down loading them.

The photos are those that have saved to your Google account. To erase them you need to log into Google online and click on your photos and then trash them. Then make sure in settings of your phone that syncing photos is not checked off under your Google account.
After deleting on your Google account online then turn your phone off and back on and they will be gone.

Since the question was about how to stop the phone from syncing photos, I'm pretty sure he meant exactly what he said.
