I searched my google drive from a random browser and could see a bunch of images that were visible to the public. Is there a quick wan to lock this all down so only friends can see them?

If your photos are stored in a folder, you should be able to select the folder and edit the sharing options. From this window, select "Advanced Options" and then set it to "Private - Only you can access".

That worked and also I found just deleting the posts on Google Plus would leave the images alone in Picasaweb or Drive.
