    Please, Please, Please. I'm a new galaxy owner and am trying to get rid of all the photos in the Gallery that appeared there somehow. I have read a lot of these posts and tried just about everything but to no avail. Can any one please outline what I need to do to get rid of this picasa thing. I read in one post to click on things that are just not there. Please help.....

    How bout going to Gallery ---> Menu (3 dots on top right) ---> Content to Display ---> uncheck everything ---> check Content in Device. Very simple choice of what's displayed, and unlike the S4, it actually remembers the choices.

    I have tried this several times, the Photos are still in my gallery with that picassa sign. No matter what I do, I can't delete them. Any other ideas?

    On your Samsung Galaxy S5, click GALLERY. At the upper-right corner, click the button with "three dots" (it's beside the camera icon) then, on the dropdown menu, click CONTENT TO DISPLAY. Remove the check mark on the box next to "Content in Picasa". Click OK! It worked on my end. Goodluck! :-)

    The problem that some of us are having is that we need to access Picasa to delete SOME of the pictures, not all of them. In this situation, the Content to Display option does not apply to us. How do we delete individual pictures from the Picasa album??? They are nowhere to be found except on my S5, not on my computer, Google+ or even the Picasa Web Albums site. Please help. This is nuts!

    Try this, go to settings>accounts>google>choose your gmail account>scroll down to Sync Picasa Web Albums> uncheck it.

    Hopefully that'll help you find it.

    Recommended from online:
    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.
    Thank you this help me a lot

    Clearing the gallery data does not erase all of the gallery. I followed Jeff Leadbeater's instructions and all my pictures are still in my gallery but Picasa photos are gone.

    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 know, that was my exact thought! I was able to remove the album by unchecking the Picasa album under content to display. But, it's still "there." Haha. Oh, well.

    I do know if you go to your pic gallery and the 3 lines on top like the settings, you can push that and it will have a drop down, go to content to display and just check content on phone. un check all content or content in Picasa you wont see it again until you push that , but I am still annoyed that i can not delete any photos in Picasa

    You have to perform the last t ask to clear them out of your gallery.

    Go into Settings----->Application Manager---->"All" tab----->Find Gallery and tap "Clear Data"


    Thing is, I do all the above, but Gallery isn't in this tab and I can't find a place to clear data or to clear photos from picasa, that I didn't put in there in the first place. Never saw anything that asked if I wanted to sync it with my account either.

    So how do I get rid of them. UGH

    Okay so I followed the instructions of most people on here. Nothing worked
    Deleted my pics off of google+ they were still in my gallery. I was so frustrated and was playing around in my gallery and realized all I had to do was go to the settings in the gallery, press "content to display" & uncheck content in Picasa.
    I seriously wanna kill myself I cannot believe I spent days trying to figure it out and that's all I had to do -_\ I feel like a dummy
    Anyways this goes to all the S5 users that suffer the same problem
