Can't delete photos in gallery / sync with Google

Ok, I think I clicked on something in settings which may have sync my photos on Google / Picasa albums with my phone. Now I have many albums showing up in my phone / gallery.  They have the Picasa round logo stamped on them. The problem is, I can't seem to delete them off my phone. I can click on them and share them but nothing else.  I can delete pictures in the standard folder in gallery but not in the Picasa albums.

  • Hey Mike, I ran into this problem before too. First, make sure to uncheck the picasa sync option under the google account settings on your phone. Second, you need to clear data/cache on the gallery app itself (don't worry, your pics saved on your phone won't be deleted). Typically, this can be found if go under your phones settings, application manager, and look for the Gallery app on the list. Force stop it, then clear data. Restart your phone and let it settle for a few minutes to rebuild the gallery folders. Then open up the gallery app and the picasa pictures should be gone. Let me know if it works for you.
