loaded onto picasa folder. yes, always
then uploaded up to web albums
( do you get an error, if so.. What error do you get ? )
And on the picasa program inside of windows, you should be able to delete as follows.
Right-click (Windows) the folder you wish to delete in Picasa and select Delete Folder. Click the Yes button in the confirmation window.
*note** you have to delete it from both places.. Web albums first, picasa program on the computer second.
For a short while after you delete from both web albums and Picasa program itself, you may still see the thumbnails and references to the pictures on picasa web albums.. This will go away as soon as the server refreshes.
If your getting errors performing either of these steps, please be as specific as you can and let me know what they are so I can assist you.

the only error message in this situation is "google.com is not responding due to a long-running script --- stop script. I can't comply! This is a one-time problem; I just want to remove the web album, not the original picasa folder. Nothing fancy. We could be playing tag for another hour to solve what I see as a simple problem. Maybe it isn't, but a phone call might help; can you do that?
Destin - This has been an ongoing issue since I originally loaded this images into picasa more than a month ago. In the past, I've never loaded more than 400 images into a single file. The other five albums (which contain various selections from the larger file) have posed no problems in viewing, either at my location or those of friends in different parts of the country. The outcome is always the same. So, apparently, I've already tried the steps you have suggested. I'm at my wit's end. Do you or your fellow experts have any other ideas? Gil
Hi Dustin - First and foremost, the troublesome album has disappeared! I may be a great photographer, but I am a lousy IT guy. More than 60 albums, 500 folders and 35000 images stored in Picasa, but I have a very limited understanding of what goes on under the hood. Most of my 35mm images are based on Nikon technology ( from a model I marked made in occupied Japan) to my latest 5100. Also quite a few Rolleiflex and 4x5 Linhof images from the 1950's. You can probably sense my level of frustration at this point. I have no idea what sync to web, etc., means, or how to undo anything. Since the entire album was frozen and unreachable, I was unable to get into any image to delete. I let it sit all night, and it finally finished loading. This morning, I got into the delete routine and cleared it out. Thanks for your efforts. Gil
