    Avoiding syncing of photos from popular social media such as Picasa web albums to my Android Phone?

    I don’t want to sync any photos from Picasa web albums to the gallery app of my Android phone. I want to disable this process in my phone and clear the data, so that all the previously fetch photos can be removed. Can anyone suggest a way for this?

    For disabling the syncing of photos from Picasa web albums to the gallery of your phone please use the following steps. First go to the settings in the app drawer and navigate to the Accounts. Then it will avail you an option to select the Google account which you want to change your sync settings. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page to uncheck ‘Sync Picasa Web Albums’ option. After that go back to the Settings and navigate to Application Manager or Applications or Apps. Find gallery and select it. Then tap on the ‘Clear Data’ and ‘Clear Cache’ options there. This will reset the cache and clears the previously syncing Picasa Web albums from Gallery app. Then you can find that your Gallery app just listed with your local photos and videos.
