How to delete your Picasa account

Strangely, you cannot delete your Picasa web account without deleting your entire Google account, which includes Gmail, Youtube and others. To get rid of your Picasa account only, Google suggests the following (Taken from their FAQ,
  • Sign in to Picasa Web Albums at using your Google Account username and password.
  • Select the album you'd like to delete.
  • From the Actions menu above your photos, select Delete album.
  • Click OK to confirm that you want to delete the album.
  • Repeat these steps for each album in your account that you wish to delete.

TIP good to know

Publicly visible text/images often aren't properly deleted even when you succeed in deleting an account. Try editing or deleting them manually before deleting the account itself. If you're unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact Picasa and ask personally. By the way, deletion requests don't necessarily mean your data will actually be deleted (e.g. due to legal obligations).
