    Make sure the synching for the Picasa albums is still off, then go into Settings > Application manager. Select the All tab, find Gallery and hit the Clear data button. Next time you open the Gallery, it will take a moment to rebuild it but the Picasa albums should finally be gone.
    Gracias mi Amigo!

    if you do with Gator 352 suggested you will not have to delete your Picasa albums off of your computer. I almost resorted to doing the same thing until I found this thread and what he suggests works just fine without removing your camera photos

    Your instructions did help me remove Picasa albums from my Gallaxy III gallery.
    Now how do I rebuild the gallery using only wanted Picasa albums?
    Thank you.

    Hello.

    I am having the exact same problem and it is driving me mad. I have just got an S3 and all of the rubbish from my Galaxy S has found its way onto my new device after I bluetoothed a couple of pictures that I did want.

    I have tried your suggestion, but when I go into Settings I cannot find Accounts and Sync - please can you explain a bit further to someone who is technically useless?!

    Many thanks,

    Lisa.

    I have tried over & over again to delete a album that seems to be in Picasa. I tried unsync and everything and it's still there.

    I am not very tech savy, can someone help me remove this folder.

    With the latest version of Google, go to Settings, and then scroll down. You'll eventually get to a section header labeled "Accounts." In that grouping, tap "Google." Tap your email address. Uncheck "Sync Google Photos."

    There is no "unsync." Following the instructions above tells Google not to sync your pictures in the future. To eliminate the pictures that are already there, you need to follow the rest of the directions in post #33:

    Picasa now seems to be "Google +". When I hover my mouse over an image there, a trashcan icon appears at the bottom right of the image, and clicking on it deletes the image. Or you can click the check mark on multiple images, or click "check all" in each group, and then delete all the checked images.

    Just wanted to thank Greige for this solution. I just got the Galaxy S3 recently and I love the phone but it was really annoying to have all my Picasa photos showing up. His fix worked perfectly, and I didn't have to back up my camera albums. It didn't touch those. Thanks.
