Gallery does not show up in my app manager. I opened Inspector in Firefox and used it to determine the class for the select-all-images-for-date checkbox, and then entered this in the console: Remove any information that you no longer want associated with your Google account. No, I want to remove the google picassa pics from my phone and for it to stop updating my phone with them every time I plug it into my computer.:

How to permanently delete pictures and videos from Google Photos

I searched a lot and I have no clue how to do it, I'm not going to delete near albums individually, and obviously, not paying again for the storage plan.

I remember old days when google-cli was able to do this kind of stuff, but sadly it seems abandoned. I tested all of the steps except the last one as I don't actually want to delete all my photos.

I had too many photos. Ended up going into photo search, and choosing "Recently Added". Good thing they were all added in past 2 days, so I just selected "Added Today" and was able to delete at a time. This is a very incomplete answer, but I'm posting it in the hopes that someone else may be able to build on it. I opened Inspector in Firefox and used it to determine the class for the select-all-images-for-date checkbox, and then entered this in the console:.

Again, I'm not posting this as a complete answer, but as a partial answer that will hopefully get someone closer to a full solution. Thank you for your interest in this question.

I have a random 6 year old Picasa album that I just could not get rid of on my phone. Ever after I deleted the pics from Picasa. This worked like a charm. Thank you so much for this information. Thank you, thank you. I was so frustrated, you solved my problem so easy. I am super happy now: I searched all over for a solution, this was the ONLY thing that worked! Thank you so so so much, from a very frustrated and non-technical person.

Found no Sync photos for Google, Picasa, only to sync 4 Gmail accounts. What do I do for not finding sync settings? I cancelled normal daily syncing of Gmail but need to return that so iPad is updated as well as PC. This includes all files, settings, accounts, databases etc. It will only delete the auto backup album and not your pictures that you placed on your device. Omg this was extremely helpful ive been trying to delete some photos forever and now they are gone thanks you this guide.

There are a lot of pics in there that I want. Can you help me too? I discontinued mine and the pix are still in my gallery. Just follow the advice on this page. For some reason the gallery does not appear under the application manager.

But you need to change tabs to all and go down to apps starting with G and it should be the first one. As an example I needed to logon to Motorola and guess what.. How horrible and desperate Google is for our data.. Android is owned by Google.

Lost my phone and now I can not get to my pictures on my google account. I am totally lost with understanding how this crap works. Omg thank you so much! I have been so sick of always having to filter what pictures I can choose from for apps like instagram and easyframe. Ahhh this made my day: I was wondering if you switched phones and put your media card in your new phone will the photos in your gallery get deleted or just the auto backup… Please ANSWER.

You can save them either to the internal memory on the phone itself or on the external storage sd card. Whats the problem with Google backing up your photos to Picasa?

If you lose your phone, where will you be able to get them back from. Not ow or Turn sync on. I had taken some pictures and they automatically backed up on Google plus, I took off the sync for photos and google plus, will that fix my issue? Then, you have to go into the apps processes and clear data on your Gallery. It has screenshots, works as intended! What it deletes, is the information IN the Gallery app regarding the pictures to form the albums.

This has nothing to do with the photos themselves. It just makes the Gallery to forget where they are until it checks again. Legend — how stressed was I getting over this? Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith……. Keep up the good work. My freaking Picasa backups are still there!!!

Can you please please help! My application manager does not have a Gallery option. How do I get rid of the picasa backups on my gallery! I Just want to remove it from the phone not the back-up.

From past many weeks m so irritate by this auto backup photos but thanks to u to get rid of this. This was really annoying me. This WAS so annoying. You have been the only clear and complete step by step instructor.

Taken any bad falls? Do you work with noxious or dangerous chemicals? Any history of schizophrenia in your family? Do you do many drugs, maybe stimulants? Have you been drinking a lot of coffee with your speed? Oh my goodness, thank you so much. I finally got rid of pictures in my gallery that had the Picasa logo onthem. Thank you sosososososo much! There is no check box for sync with Picasso, just the option to push and it will then sync, on my phone.

What do I do now? And guys nothing to get scared about clearing data it will not delete any other filles. Scroll down to gallery, continue with this tutorial. Got a bit lost with your instructions at the sync part but got it figured out. My Samsung Galaxy Note 1 was getting too full with Picassa albums which were duplicating my pics. Thank u very much I felt as if I didnt have privacy on my phone …. I had a Google plus acct, which I was really enjoying btw. Wth…I def refused, because I would haaaate to see alllllll my private pics viewed in Google plus or anywhere for that matter.

They need to stop doing that crazy stuff…. Holding my breath as I clicked to open up my gallery only to see that all of my albums are there, but the duplicates with Picaso are GONE!

I did as it says and cleared the data in both the picasa app and the gallery, but the photos are still there! I have a problem at step 4 above how to remove google or picasa web albums from gallery. I successfully completed steps 1,2,3. Yet, I do have a gallery app on the phone and use it to access my photos and albums. Where might the gallery app be? You have to swipe to the right to see ALL apps. I was stuck at this point too. Then another helpful comment below pointed me in the right direction.

Thank you, thank you all for the help. The Picasa album was driving me nuts. On my phone it show application manager ,but does not show gallery on it ,i would like to delete some picture from my picasa album.

If I do this, is it guaranteed that it will only delete my Picasa albums? I really appreciate your advice…it was 10 days that I was looking for removing those data from my phone…. Omg thank you so much I just got this phone and the photos have been a mess ever since thano you so much. I opened my gallery and a bunch of albums popped up out of no where and I couldnt get rid of them! This helped so much! Awesome, this was irritating me alot…..

This has been driving me crazy for such a long time. I had to swipe to the left a few times to get to the correct column. But every album that I personally put into my phone will stay? Yep, mine are backed up to onedrive anyway so I was happy enough to risk it, but it never hurts to make a backup. What if I want to delete the photos completely?

Thank you so much for this. It was really irritating. I usually disable a lot of unecessary ones. Some i am not allowed to disable. Are they all necessary? It worked, just did it now. Could I possibly have to tune off Facebook sync? I have been frustrated many times and now I finally got rid of the albums I wanted to. It would be really frustrating if this was my only recourse to selectively synching content… Anyone have any ideas?

I got my Note 3 just last month. This has been bugging the crap out of me since I bought this phone a week ago!!!!! I was trying to attempt a selfie today. They say if I remove them I stand to lose all. Can you go in and remove them? I do not have a phone. Just get them off, please. Its off when I got to Apps and over to gallery to clear.

Its erases them for about 5 seconds then they jump right back in the gallery.. Will it work the same? It created an album called auto-backup. How has this happened?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Turn off the sync and backup setting and buy a physical harddrive. All I want to do is delete the Picasa album from my phone because it is nothing but duplicate pics. I did have old pics from my previous phone synced to my current phone. Will it delete these photos too because I do still want them on here. I still see pictures I take show up in the Google Photos app.

Are these instructions suppose to prevent this from happening, or is this a different issue? This needs some updating. The present Android 4. Hours wasted on Google sites to find a solution no success. But why Google makes it so difficult??? This is a shitty attempt to spy, nothing more, nothing less. Even after deleting it and never granting it permissions, it still alerts me multiple times daily that I need to log in, so it can ask for permissions again.

Why would I want every unscrewed picture I take to immediately get uploaded to the internet? I bet a lot of people are not aware it is happening to them as the app bullies people into using it. And why do I need to identify myself to post this comment?

More spying I suppose. U r being too much suspicious buddy! U need to give email id or something so that if somebody replies or asks u something u get the notification! Stop watching spy movies! Good thinking my friend… now they can easily tag your face and suggest to people everywhere whether they know you.. Bit confused it gives a pop up message clearing will delete all my data,files, settings etc. Thank you sooo much! And is this going to delete ALL the pictures on my phone?

Apps is also ok. Not being able to get rid of those was stressing me out. How do i delete their email address from my phone.. This is pretty disturbing. Including photos that get automatically saved the iPhone camera roll from whats app. Ssamsung Android phone members follow the below steps: Please try in this way. I wish you could see my Samsung Admire screen.

At the bottom of the list of 6 things it says remove account but when I hit it, it said are you sure you want to remove this account? No, I want to remove the google picassa pics from my phone and for it to stop updating my phone with them every time I plug it into my computer.: I must delete Picasa!!!! Those picasa pictures from whataheck where were so annoying!

The Picasa cold-sore is gone from my phone. Now I need to delete the pics from the Google Picasa account and it will not let me. That will be my next battle. I feel a lack of control on-line.
