Why do my deleted photos keep reappearing on my Samsung Galaxy S5 Active?

I have had this problem since I've gotten the phone a couple years ago. I delete pictures and they show back up later. It is filling up my memory and I don't know how to turn it off. I have my phone set to back up. But I have checked to make sure that I have auto sync turned off for everything I can think of...still nothing. Help please! My phone is about out of memory and I've tried everything I can think of and googled it on numerous occasions :(?

Hi Allison. First, please back up all your media files; images, videos, and audio files. After doing that go to Settings > Application manager > All > look for Gallery, tap it > Tap Clear data.

Let us know if that works for you.
