Unlike iPhoto, where photos need to be loaded manually, Picasa allows you to work with photos right on your hard disk. It is a fast, free and easy-to-use tool. Nevertheless, for some reason, you may want to uninstall the app from Mac. Follow our guide to learn two ways of how to uninstall Picasa on macOS.

To remove Picasa from your computer with all service files and unneeded data, follow the next steps:

  1. Remove Picasa from the Applications folder to the Trash.
  2. Open the Finder and navigate the ~Library folder. For this, press Cmd+Shift+G and type ~/Library in the search field. Then press Enter. Go to Library
  3. Go to the Application Support subfolder →  Google → Picasa 3. In the Picasa 3 folder find the file db3 and remove it.
