    Does anyone have a means of deleting photos from picasa? I have tried a few different things and I can not seem to have any luck. I have deleted the photos from my account on the laptop, disabled syncing, etc. The work around used for prior galaxy devices does not seem to be possible.

    I have the sync settings turned off or disabled but I cant seem to remove photos from the album that is in my gallery. I cant figure it out.
    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.

    I think you can go into the gallery setting and disable it from there so it doesn't show in your gallery.

    Correction I believe its in the sync settings. Under your gmail.

    Go into app settings and scroll to Picasa force stop and clear data and clear cache and click "turn off". Done

    It took me awhile to figure this out, I even tried downloading the Picasa app for my Mac. Anyways besides turning of sync you need to go into your Google Dashboard via Browser.

    Under Piscaso is where you can delete the pics. It can't be done through your phone.

    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 can't find Picasso on my phone. Looked in all and it not there. I never downloaded it. Guess I though maybe you'll were talking about it being one that was already on it.

    I have the same issue. The way I got rid of the picturesame the first time was I removed my Google account from my phone and then I added it again.

    But when I want to delete a picture from my phone that is backed up to Picasa I don't want to have to delete my account each time.

    There is definitely a sync issue with what is on the my Web account and what is on my device on my S5 and S4

    Type picasa.google.com into your browser. This is where I had to delete everything. It solved the problem.

    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.

    Oh what a pain! I had Picasa blocked/disabled on my Verizon HTC Incredible, then got my Galaxy S5 with AT&T. Sadly, the Google setting blocking Picasa didn't port over, every blasted picture from my laptop, Facebook & Google account synced to Picasa. Ugh!! The sync setting stayed, but the disabled setting did not.

    Picasa shows up as a folder in your galery. Settings are in your Google account.

    I had never used Picassa, yet the pictures from my old phone showed up on the S5 under Picassa pics. I was annoyed at that, considering Google never asked my permission to upload my pictures. Ought to be an "opt in" feature, not automatic.

    Thanks, went from S3 to S5 and these picasa pics were just there and I couldn't get rid of them. Very helpful! For the S5 do all the above but tap into your email address to find picasa.

    Thanks Jeff. But I also found that if you want to delete the Picasa folder in your Gallery on your phone.....open your Gallery>click on the 3 menu buttons>menu will open and click on "content to display">I then unchecked the "all content" and just kept "content in device">click ok> and that darn pesty Picasa folder is now gone.

    I wanted to get rid of that darn Picasa folder in my Gallery and finally figured it out. Everyone's suggestions helped.
