Why do these pictures appear in my Gallery?
I seem to have some folders in gallery, that look like picasa folders, well they look like picasa as there is a picasa logo in the corner.
Possibly from Google+, which I tried and gave up on.
I've deleted the G+ stuff on the web, and the few pics I put on picasa web years ago to test it.
I've gone into sync settings for the accounts and stopped syncing
They are still there on the Xoom!
and I can't delete them, other photos get the rubbish icon to delete, these dont, and I have no idea where they are on the folder structure to just get rid of them.
I'm going mad!!!!!

man i had that problem too which is why i had to delete g+ from my xoom. it doesnt even give you an option to delete the pictures from your gallery. i wish i could remember what i did that finally removed them It was so frustrating. I never even used picasa and i still got that icon to appear over my pictures. I think I went into G+ and deleted every g+ picture. I only had like 4. I deleted the 4 and removed the app.

that's about where I am now!
Check to see what is actually synced under your Google account.
Check the Settings, Accounts and Sync and you may find that Picassa is ticked as a default source to Sync. Untick the box and then try to delete the images from the Xoom.
You may also need to delete the Cache and Data from the Gallery App under Apps, All, Gallery and then press the buttons for clear Cache and then for Data.
After doing this you will probably want to reboot. The Gallery App should then search the Xoom for media and display what is there.
Hopefully with Picassa no longer available to sync you shouldn't see those pictures any more.
I've done all of that except clear the cache,
I'll give that ago now.
Clearing the data for the gallery in the settings finally got rid of the pictures.
no idea where it stored it though.
Can't say I was too happy about, I dunno, what seemed like "underhand tactics" of automatically choosing to sync something without giving me the choice, hiding the data where I couldn't get to it, and then making it hard(ish) to clean up.
sorted now though.
