    You can only delete photos that are in the Camera Roll, or Imported Albums. Photos that were synced using iTunes can only be removed by changing the sync settings in iTunes (or contents of the synced folders), and syncing again.

    The Remove option appears when you have added a photo to an album locally on the iPad. Since this only links the file to the album (the original picture stays in the Camera Roll), you are only removing the photo from that album. Not deleting it.

    If you try to delete a photo from the Camera Roll that has been added to an album, you will receive a warning that you are going to delete that photo from all albums, as well as the Camera Roll.

    The other icons (like Red Eye) appear when you are editing a photo. You can not delete the photo when in Edit mode, only cancel the edits, or save.

    According to the IPad guide to delete photos you use the edit button and delete a photo by using the "no entry" sign. When I touch the edit button it gives me 4 options for enhancements and there is a "no entry" sign but at an angle and it is to remove red eye.
    I then tried to see whether I could make the photos wobble (as one does for apps) in every conceivable way without success.
    Any suggestions how to delete a photo or album for an Ipad3?
    Thanks. Paul
    Hi Paul,
    If you sync photos with iTunes you can only delete them from the computer using iTunes.
    At least I think this is true. I do not ever sync photos using iTunes. I use an app called Transfer. It lets you go from computer to ipad or ipad to ipad, and you can delete the photos on the ipad itself. The same is true if you take photos with the ipad camera or import using the camera connection kit. I may be wrong but I think that you can delete these photos on the ipad. I found a great little trick the other day for photos. I wanted to delete more than one photo at a time. I found out that if you have a Mac
    That the app preview will let you select and delete all or some selected photos. Much better than deleting one at a time. Hope that this helps you. I got an ipad3 for the new screen and had to figure out how to,transfer all my photos from my ipad2. Very frustrating and time consuming until I found out that I could use preview to do lots of thing with the ipad. Did not know about this. Sincerely Rick

    Many thanks to all for the advice. I have finally made it and the photos I did not want are gone. The process was longer and more complicated than I thought. Although I synchronised a day after I had removed the photos from my computer they did not go away. However, by going into photos and selecting the folders I wanted on the iPad and then synchronising the offending photos went. But it did mean that the synchronising seemed to be downloading, maybe after removing, all the photo folders again as it took over 5 minutes of synchronising.
    Thanks again. Paul

    I finally am able to confirm what is being discuss in this thread. To delete photos uploaded using Itunes, one must use Itunes to delete the folder. Thus all the photos goes with the deletion. Using your computer edit the photo folder to include only what you want. Then upload the folder using Itunes. It is somewhat complicated and I hope Apple will make it easier in the future.

Unfortunately while by tapping the photo and getting a tick II can share and copy but nothing happens with the delete button. It is there but not lit up in the same way as share or copy.
    All my photos are from my computer rather than using the camera on the IPad. I know I had no difficulty removing photos that my wife had taken on her IPad with the installed camera.
    I am going to delete them on my computer and see what happens.
    Thanks. Paul

    Yes, photos that came from your computer to the iPad can only be deleted by syncing with the computer.

    CopyTrans Suite is a superb and easy to work with program for PC if you don't want to use iTunes and there you can transfer anything in anyway back and forth and delete what ever you want to delete off your iPhone, iPod or iPad.
    I struggled for months to try to delete a photo folder on my iPad. I searched forum after forum and no one had any good answer. Well here it is CopyTrans Suite..... Backup iPod to PC,copy songs from iPod to computer,iPod to iTunes
