    Open the photo. There is a trashcan icon in the top right. Press It!

    Guess I wasn't explicit enough.

    The photos exist in the main " Photos" ( bottom, to the right of Safari). When I open that, there is a folder called "camera roll". When I open one of the photos ther is no trash can displayed.

    If I tap "edit" a box comes up to allow me to delete selected photos, but when I select a photo the "delete" box grays out and the selected photo does not delete.

    Do I have to use iTunes?

    Thks

    Those instructions were good for IOS 4.x. I'm guessing since you have an edit button, you are on IOS5?

    I don't have that on my iPad2 yet. But on my iPhone4S, the trashcan icon is still there. Hopefully an IOS5 iPad2 user can confirm where it is...

    It sounds to me you're looking at the thumbnails of the photos and have not actually clicked on the photo to open it. You have to open each individual photo one-by-one before the trash can appears.

    I'm on iOS 5 on two iPads and there's no longer a Camera Roll. I have Saved Photos, which looks like same thing. It lets me click on a photo and the trash can icon comes up for deleting, as before.

    Okay, one more time.

    I open Photos from the main screen.

    The photos (all 351of them) display as thumbnails. On that screen, across the top, is the following:
    Photos Places Slideshow and the box with the arrow.

    If I tap the arrow box, across the top of the same thumbs is:

    Share Copy Delete. Select Photos

    When i tap a photo, a checkmark appears on the thumbnail. When i then tap Delete, nothing happens.

    On none of the screens is there a trashcan symbol.

    Could it be that the upgrade failed?

    I just tried deleting from thumbnails and it works. (Curly arrow, check photos to be deleted, Delete, then they disappear.)

    Maybe you should close your photo app and reset your iPad in case your app is hung up.

    I just tried a complete reset...no go.

    Next will be a trip to the local Apple store.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
