How do I delete imported photos?
I used my iPad to view images while on a holiday (several hundred files) and now I want to delete them from the iPad. The only way I can see to do it however, is one at a time! The imports don't show up in iTunes (at least I can't see them) and there's no way to delete a whole event on the iPad.
Anyone have any suggestions?
One way if you are using a PC
If you are using a Windows PC, when you connect the iPad with the USB cable, you can use Windows Explorer to look at the DCIM folder on the iPad. When I did this I found a bunch of folders with system generated names, but I could look at the files in the folders to figure out what was in the Albums on the iPad. Although you can't delete the folder itself, you can highlight the list of files in the folder (ctrl-A to select all) and then delete them!
I find that the functionality of the whole Photos app is a little immature. It is vitually impossible to manipulate large numbers of pictures directly on the iPad, and it is pretty obvious the photo handling was a last-moment addition to iTunes.
Hope my suggestion works for you.
