How do I delete photos?
When I turn on my iPad, appearing at the same time as the power-on slide there is a small Picture of a flower. This is synonymous with the app icon appearing after the iPad is up and going. When I tap on either of these icons I am presented with a bunch of photos.
My question, how do I delete these photos?
At some time or other in my attempts I manage to bring up a red "delete" button but it is greyed out and does not work?
Any and all advice appreciated.

This is a feature that you turn on and off in settings. Under pass code lock you will find the picture frame setting. Picture frame allows you to have photos show when your iPad is charging. You will see other settings for picture frame in general settings.
Haven't seen this one crop up in a while. Thanks for that answer, Czevski. The photo frame was introduced with iOS 5, and immediately became a non-hit. It certainly is not the easiest, or most intuitive, feature to turn off. It had a few of us scratching our heads, if I remember correctly.

I have gone through Settings with no joy, and pass code still remains allusive . Again your help please.:o
I'm on iOS 6 and this is the general settings page. I don't know how the up arrow got on the photo but the other arrow points to pass code lock.
when yu open each photo there is a trash can icon, use it or delete the photos using itunes
How do I delete photos?
This is for your question "how do I delete those photos" (that appear when you press the flower icon before unlocking or by opening the Photo app - the one with the flower icon).

So, all you can do with that icon/function is watch the pictures in a slideshow. To delete them from your ipad, you will have to do so within the Photo app. Again, all the pictures that show are on your iPad and can be accessed via the Photos app (the flower icon that shows when your iPad is up and running).
To delete those pictures, open the Photo app/tap on the flower icon. You will see this:
After following the steps in the picture above, you will get this:
After that, you can delete photos or send them via e-mail (among other things).
Hope this helps.
Sadly, the problem still persist despite your excellent tutorial and advice.
Here is how the problem manifests it's self.
I click on the Photos tab (when my iPad is up and running) which gives me a full page of photos. Of the 6 tabs now showing along the top of the page only 3 are accessible - Photos, Slideshow and Edit. (Photo Stream, Albums and Places are greyed out).
**I do not have a curved arrow as you describe Marilyn.
Marilyn, your next (black and white) picture shows 3 icons (in your green square) located at the top left of the picture, one of the them being the "delete" button.
For me to get the delete button to come up I need to tap the "Edit" tab (described above as being one of the 3 accessible selections).
When the "Edit" tab is selected, I am now presented with only 2 a fore mentions tabs (as opposes to your 3) and those being, "Share" and "Delete" these appear in the left top corner, with "Add to" and "Cancel" appearing in the top right corner. The "Cancel" button is the only one accessible. The others, including the "Delete" button are still greyed out.
However, in this mode when a photo is selected a small tick appears in a blue circle and the "share" and "Add to" and the "Cancel" button now become accessible.
The "Delete" tab is still greyed out.
So I find that I am still unable to delete photos despite your excellent tutorial. I am guessing that your tutorial is for iOS 5 where as I am running iOS 6 and that may be the fly in the ointment.
Just as a point, your screen snapshot of "Picture Frames" settings are the same settings that I have in place.
uv147....no trash cans of any kind can be found anywhere by me, the delete button is simply a red rectangular tab.
czevski.......In Settings, under Passcode Lock and headed "Allow access when locked", (sub section) Picture Frame is set to "ON"
So guys, it looks like I am still in need of your wisdom. ;)
Is this what you are trying to remove?
No it's not. This icon I only mentioned in passing. What I want to delete are actual photos that I have on my iPad taken by me.
Marilyn was on the right path I think, but her tute showed different tab selections than what appear on my iPad even though I follow her instructions to the letter.
