How to delete Synced Picasa Photos from Gallery in Android

Google Sync in Android works great. As soon as you enter your Google login credentials, you will have everything on Google services on your mobile. Almost everything including G mail, Contacts, Picasa photo albums, Bookmarks, Settings and Starred locations on map. Sometimes its really good to have all this but not always. Specially in the case of Picasa web albums. You don`t want to keep everything on Picasa to show up in your phone gallery. Well removing those photos is not a big deal and requires just two simple steps. Read on for details.

STEP 1 : Goto Settings >> Accounts and Sync and click on the Google account >> Then uncheck Picasa web albums

STEP 2 : Goto Settings >> Application manager >> All >> click on Gallery and then clear data

Thats it... You are done.
