    Thank you! I have been trying to get rid of my photos for months and didn’t realize they were synced from Picasa automatically with my gmail sync. This worked right away!

  2. Laura says

    This didn’t work for me. There was no option “uncheck” Sync with Picassa. I had to disable Auto-Sync and then delete the files using the Applications Manager.

    Unchecking sync with Picasa worked right away; I have been trying for a week to get rid of 2,000 photos. Went to two phone stores and they could not help with my Samsung Prevail Galaxy phone

    I just purchased this phone and all of my Picasa pics – from my computer ended up on it. You must have a Gmail acct to use Picasa – that is how they end up there. To delete: Menu, Settings, Accounts & Sync, Uncheck the Sync with Picasa. It will delete all of the Picasa files. I just did it today. Good Luck

    This procedure only works for some of the pix in my fascinate gallery. Some of my pix I can select but when I do the delete option disappears from the bottom of the screen and I see only share and more. The pix I cannot delete all came from my computer Picassa album, from the upload drop box. I have no idea how to get rid of them. Do I go back into Picassa on my computer and delete them there? I’m hoping someone with a fascinate can help me. Also, is there anyway to rearrange the picture views in the gallery? Pix are stacked on top of each other. Please help!
