    How to Remove Facebook Photos in Photos app?

    My Photos app on Startscreen is still showing Facebook photos that were deleted from FB. How can I get rid of them? Where are they stored?
    Switching Facebook off and on in Settings didn't make any difference.

    Dual Boot: Back to W7 and Ubuntu 12.04

    Ah the cache strikes again......

    "Try this: go to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.windowsphoto_[random characters]\LocalState\

    Once there you'll find cached copies LargeTile?.jpg and SmallTile?.jpg
    Delete the images you don't want (or replace them with ones you do want) then go to the start screen, turn off the live tile then turn it back on again. Hope that helps."

    (Thanks to Mathew Wong for these instructions)

    Thanks, I tried that, but it didn't work. In the end, I just uninstalled the Photo app and reinstalled. Seems OK now.
    Weird that W8 retains photos that no longer exist. Doesn't do much for the definition of a 'live' tile!
