    This is very simple ..... login on your gmail account and delete all your photos on there ..... then go to your andriod (mine galaxy 3) and check the box on your gmail account to sync on your phone with web photos .. sync and when you look at your phone gallery all will be gone that you have deleted on your gmail/picasa account....

    Thanks Scott,

    Eventually got rid of it by clearing the data in the App setting for the Gallery App!

    Cheers

    As did I. Clearing Cache wasn't enough. Clearing data doesn't delete anything off your phone despite what the warning leads you to believe. At least it didn't on my S4, still have camera pics and screenshots.

    Additionally, you will want to uncheck the picassa sync prior to doing this, otherwise the albums will just redownload.

    Tim: This took me forever to work since all the forums don't actually address this. Like you, I only wanted to delete a couple of photos off my phone from my picasa account, not the whole picasa album.
    You were on the right track by going to Google+ on your PC and deleting the individual photos from there. Next, go back to your phone and go to the home screen > Settings > Application manager > Gallery > Clear Data.
    Don't worry, this will delete all the picasa album photos from your phone but they are not deleted from Google + so you will get them back. It does not delete any photos on your SD card.
    Then go back to Gallery > menu > Settings > Choose your google account to sync > Resync picasa albums (at the bottom). This will take awhile if you have a lot of photos in your picasa / google+ albums so you might want to make sure you are on wifi.
    Then they should all be back, minus the offending photos you deleted off Google + earlier! I really hope that helps you. I searched for ages trying to find the answer to this before working it out myself!

    Will turning sync back on, also return photos found in Gallery to show many with the picasa symbol on them?
    Also, tonight, using picasa tool, I found web albums- would like to delete completely- have suggestions? Realize it's a bit beyond what you covered but I'm hopeful.

    Oops, meant: in picasa tool, discovered auto backup, want to delete entirely, in fact, I'm so irritated by all the synced photos involving picasa, I'd like to delete all under guise of picasa- you know how to delete this large autobackup album of photos?
    I've already disabled G+ long ago. I haven't done a thing from PC but have unchecked sync p.web albums (gmail accounts still not having sync on- I miss that!), from app mgr, all, gallery, cleared data c cache is auto done) so I've got to point in gallery, I'm no longer seeing pics with picasa icon on them.
    Somehow, I feel this is temporary- even tho I've got sync off, G+ off, once I figure out how to delete autobackup, I'll be golden. There may be a menu button, delete album option but I did lots of this tonight, needed to first see that gallery was cleared from having picasa iconed pics. At least, there's progress- using bright kernels from forum help, I'm in far better shape than when I first arrived to find solutions! Many thanks to all !

    The way to delete the Picasa albums off of the phone but not your Google account is to make sure that the sync option is off. Then go to Settings - Application Manager - All - Gallery - Clear Data/Clear Cache


    I just did this on mine and so far so good.

    Does clearing data and cache delete all photos from gallery?

    No. The pictures aren't really in the gallery. That's just the way to view them.

    Umm this has been the case since ICS if I am not mistaken. If don't like full Google integration why did you buy an Android phone. I feel that I may be starting a fire here but worth me asking. Don't mean to instigate just want to know why you don't want full Google integration.




    The easiest thing to do is...
    • go to gallery
    • go to the three dots
    • go to "content to display"
    • then, uncheck the picasa

    Hope that helps

    OK, file this one under extremely annoying!

    I have no Picasa account and do not want one.

    Since about a week ago, every time I add an image to my Gmail Contacts, the image also shows up in my Gallery and I have no way of deleting it from the Gallery.

    These images have a small Picasa icon on them, but I have no Picasa account and don 't wish to open one and certainly not on my PC.

    Any ideas how to delete these pics?

    Thank you, S

    Thank you so very much, I was really annoyed but live android so this came out as a great relief. My phone feels so clean after removing all that unwanted junk from what's app shares.

    Thanks again
