    The way I had to do it( I have an s5), I went to my accounts set on the phone and clicked on the Google one and went to my sync options and turned off Picasa and the photo sync then went to my settings > application manager > all > gallery > delete catche and data> force stop and restarted my phone, that's all that would work for me.

    Thanks for the best writeup I've come across describing the latest versions of these applications. No luck for me though. Within seconds after restarting and going into Gallery, the albums appear again. I have done a factory reset, deleted the albums using Gallery, deleted the files on the SD card, turned off all the Google sync options, cleared the data and cache from Gallery and the new Photos app, but as soon as I restart the S4, they are back. One mystery is why I never see the files using my PC on Picassa web or Google Photos or Google Drive. Where are they?

    I had the same issue. I was changing phone and giving my old phone away and couldn't delete some photos. As of tonight, I did by deleting my email accounts and now the gallery is blank
    It may help!

    I had to remove my email accounts and the whole gallery was deleted. You might want to backup your photos on a USB or somewhere else b4 trying this removal. Good luc5

    For the love of God, this is nuts!! This Jimmy guy is right- something is definitely amiss and it does seem like a rogue app BECAUSE YOU CANNOT PICK INDIVIDAL PICS TO DELETE OUT OF PICASSA, pics that aren't in any other place; like pics I deleted long ago off of Google photos google+, my verizon cloud, gallery, etc syoll show up in this stupid Picassa. ALL pics I have ever taken are in my Picassa album! Is Picasa like a Google CLOUD? How does it differ from Google Drive, and Google+ and Circle. All downloads, screenshots, random pics- like any image I've ever taken, EVEN THOSE I DELETED OFF OF GOOGLE PHOTOS (THE PINWHEEL APP)
    ARE IN PICASSA!!!! Thank god we can at least hide this entire album from showing up on our phones and syncing....
    HELP!!!

    Here is the post I'm agreeing with:
    Thank you but all the option does is just hide it - They are still there if you set the option again. I've tried that, downloaded the Picasa App from Google and deleted all the pictures from there, Turned off every DAMN app the synch's to the cloud and they are still there. Something is amiss!!!!!

    I think they have a rogue App and your pictures are going to be out there FOREVER!!!!

    To memii4447:

    You my friend are a lifesaver! I had tried everything above and it was so confusing, I could not get anywhere. When I tried your method with the three dots it worked perfectly! I care not whether they are still there; at least they're still hidden and that is my main focus. Perhaps somewhere down the road, someone can make it as easy to delete them as it was your genius that came up with this particular solution... kudos!
