You forgot a step...
First check if auto data sync is enabled:
1. Go to Settings and at Connections tab select Data Usage
2. In properties enable Auto sync Data (To get the properties click on the button on the left side from your Home button on your phone at the bottom right side)

Thank you!!! Worked like a charm for me on my Galaxy Note 4. For those still seeing images in their Gallery, go to Settings/Application Manager/ select All/choose Gallery and Clear Cache/Clear Data. Picasa images should be gone and images stored on your phone should remain.

thank god, thx for the help. had to restore my S5 and update to 5.0 shit got really annoying again. I'm not a huge fan of sharing photos and stuff from anywhere the cloud and shit, I like to use the SD card and just plug n play on the phone and let files save to the card. instead of the cloud. cloud is just not me.and manually save the photos on my computer.

ty bro works fine


I had all the boxes checked. ✔
I went to UNCHECK them & hit the home button. The pictures on Picasa are STILL there!
What did I do wrong?? Or the idiot in the video did something wrong? :/ smh!!

There's no box for me to check omg please help


Suddenly photos and sounds in gallery hidden from these icons on my samsung S5 ,I only can access it from MY FILES>DEVICE STORAGE .Please anybody advise


So after following the steps of the video ,  you need to go to settings-> application Manager->  scroll down until you find " Gallery"   then click on  :  "clear cache " ," clear data " and "force stop"

And that's all !! After you can go to gallery and see that all your picassa( album) pictures have been deleted. Therefore make sure to download the pictures you want to keep before doing this !!!!
