    Hi, i had exactly the same problem. All you gotta do is go to "galery", and on the top you will see a search cursor, camera pic and 3 dots. However click the last think on the top and then click "content to display" and there you can just turn off picasa or facebook or whatever. i hope it will work and sorry for the bad english

    Even though you clear the album/photos via the gallery and content display buttom, the damn album is still there. I guess it means the album will always be there?

    I have done everything through Application Manager and everything but nothing worked except the Gallery option. Oh well

    i had same problem on my S5... so annoying having all 625 picasa photos on my phone..... did most things you had too. i couldnt even delete a photo off the album or delete that... it was driving me nuts. when looking at my albums i have 3 vertical dots, i tap this to then display a list of commands. One is "what content to display"... so tap that and i went straight for unchecking Picasa, others can be enabled or disabled too like FB. etc.

    Anyway job done Picasa is gone from my albums yay

    Go into Settings----->Accounts and Sync---->Tap Google----->Uncheck "Sync Picasa Web Albums".
    Go into Settings----->Application Manager---->"All" tab----->Find Gallery and tap "Clear Data"

    I think your next step is going into the gallery app and tapping clear data. I believe it will only delete the cache and not your pictures.
    Do this and you are golden

    This didn't work for me. Eventhough I am no longer syncing Picasa the album and photos are still there.
    I've also deleted the Picasa album directly within Google+. So technically this album does not exist anywhere any longer.
    Yet there is it. Staring at me when I open my gallery on my s5 So irritating
    :') I FINALLY got rid of it. In your gallery hit the three dots in the top right, go to photos to display or it should say something like that and unchecked photos in Picasa hope this works because it did for me :''))))

    The way to get rid of the files on your phone is:
    hold down the gallery icon until the Creat Folder, App Info, X Cancel menu appears
    pull the icon up to the App Info icon and release
    When the new screen appears select Clear Data.
    To keep it from happening again. Open Gallery Goto Setting Click on your Username@gmail.com and scroll to the bottom. Uncheck Sync Picasa Web album.
    Finally go to Google + select Pictures and delete all the pictures in your Picasa album.

    You are now all cleaned up.
    Thank you. This was the most helpful post on this topic that I found in this thread.

    All this is to Stoke viewing the pics and not how to get rid of them so here is how
    First install Google+ yes you need this
    Then log in to your Google account now with G+open at the top you will see a small arrow pointing down
    Press it then at the bottom you will see a photos option press that
    Here you can now DELETE the pics or Albums

    Slightly OT, but i have an issue say when saving pics to Picasa from a PC and then downloading them to my phone later. When i do this, even if i disable all the syncing from the device and from Picasa's autobackup the photos get backed up to Picasa again causing duplication! The only way i have seen to get around it is to then goto Picasa from a PC and delete those duplicates afterwards, annoying.

    I tried all way outs but nothing. finally i thought to look in the album options instead of the settings. Go to gallery, select option which is right in the corner and there you will see content to display, Over

    Ok stopping the synce does help but getting rid also helps and the only way to totally delete them is via Google+ or the Pictures app in chrome
