I also have pictures from Picasa that I can't get rid of. I did the "clear data" from settings, and even did a "forced stop" from the settings. The pictures seem to be gone from my gallery, but a few minutes later, they're back!
I'm afraid that if I uncheck sync, the phone won't sync with my hotmail account (and I still want that).
MY phone doesn't have account and sync anymore after the newest update from s3....
what should i do?
i can't "uncheck" the album, and i did delete the data on the Gallery...
email me your answer: email@example.com
I didn't have accounts and sync on my note 2 either. I found out where to unsync different Google accounts such as Picasa though.
Goto Settings -> Google (Under Accounts) -> click on your Google account at the very top (for me, I click on my email address at the top).
From here you can unsync many different Google items.
To remove the Picasa albums from your gallery,
Goto Settings -> Application Manager -> All Applications (by sliding at the top) -> Gallery -> Clear data.
After you click on clear data, a warning may pop up saying that this action will permanently delete these items. This is NOT referring to the pictures you took on your phone. This will only delete items that are synced. If you ever want these photos back, you can just resync by following the same process as above. Good luck.
Trying to remove Picassa albums from my Galaxy 3. I followed the usual instructions.... unsynced 'sync picassa', etc etc. Picassa albums disappeared... BUT, the next day they were back!! I can't go through the process again because all the info I was supposed to uncheck, etc. is already unchecked. Am I stuck with these albums forever????
Same thing happen with me.. solution.. remove the google account.. it will prompt will remove everything contact/pic/etc.. just OK, then add again your google account. immediate untick to sync picasa.. on your gallery, it will prompt to login picasa, choose NO. ..
