    Anyway to delete a photo album Folder?

    I am a wildlife and nature photographer. After a day in the field when I return to my motel room I Import the low res image files (jpeg) into my iPad 3 via the Apple SD card reader for review. That could be any where from 200 to 800 images. That part of the process goes smoothly. However, what is a real pain is having to individually tag each file and then delete them. Is there any iPad technique or procedure that would allow that or better yet to select the folder and delete it and all the images it contains? Right now it is time consuming. Thanks for any suggestions or help.

    Sorry, I don't think you can delete a whole folder that was built into the iPad. I could be wrong, though.

    The only trick I know is this.

    Tap (with two fingers) and hold for about half a second on one thumbnail, then swipe across the rest (while in edit mode). This will select all the icons swiped. Works pretty good for quickly selecting a row of icons, but has a tendency to scroll the screen when you try to select them vertically.

    It's (slightly) faster than tapping each icon individually.

    The only albums you can delete directly in Photos are those you create in Photos (not including the imported albums or the camera roll).

    Edit: I just reread this and realized I messed up. The instructions should've been to tap with two fingers and then drag. Sorry about that, but the 0P seems seems to have figured it out on his own, thank goodness. I fixed it in the text above.

    Deleting an album is easy try this: create new album and call it test for example , copy one photo in there, go up one level to the main album page so you can see all albums , hit edit click the X on the left corner of the album to delete ie : test
    That's it....

    Further you cannot delete an album that is set to synch to iTunes, you can only remove within iTunes.

    Thanks for the great inputs. I did find an alternate, though not ideal, solution to my need which is to batch select photos and delete them. The method only allows me to do one screen at a time, but that is far better than tapping each image one by one and then deleting. The good news is that once the folder (Last Import or All Imported) is empty it disappears from iPhoto (iPad 3). What I do is go into the album and click on the arrow to put it into edit mode and then I tap on an image with two (2) fingers and without letting go I slide them from one image to another until I have the whole screen/page selected and then I tap on delete and voila they get deleted. Ultimately, I hope Apple will someday lighten up and transfer such simple and necessary file maintenance operations like this to the user.

    Glad you got it worked out; even if it's not an ideal solution.

    Ahh, you didn't mention you were using iPhoto , anyhow the album management is still within the default ipad photo app.

    Are you using Photo Stream anywhere in the process? It has a max resolution of 2048 x 1536.
