    Welcome to Android Central! Picasa represents photos that have been backed up to your Google Photos in the cloud. Do you want those photos saved locally? If it isn't crucial to keep the photos locally, I'd just keep them in the cloud and let the phone access them that way.

    If you really don't want to see your cloud photos, then go to Settings>Accounts-Samsung, and uncheck Picasa or Gallery. That should prevent Picasa photos from showing up in the Gallery. In order for them to show up in your "normal gallery," those photos have to be saved to the phone's local storage, which means manually downloading those cloud photos to the phone. You can use the Google Photos app to do this. But I would strongly recommend taking advantage of the ability to back up all of your photos to the cloud, because phone storage does not last forever, and I see too many posts here about people who lose precious photos without ever backing them up.
