    Deleting photographs

    Took a whole load of photographs and they were saved in camera roll.
    I created a separate album called Brisbane 2012. After a period of time I purchased a physical photo album using these photos, so decided to remove them from the I Pad to create storage space. I deleted them from camera roll, but they are still in the other album (Brisbane 2012)
    i have tried to delete this collection of photos but cannot find a way to do it? I cannot see any method of deletion, either on the individual photos, or the complete album?
    Any ideas? Is this something to do with I Cloud?

    Photo albums you created in the Photo app can be deleted this way:
    Tap Edit


    Deleting photographs-image-623959935.jpg

    You should find the possibility to delete the album here (circle):


    Deleting photographs-image-1026090012.jpg

    Then tap Done.

    You can delete photos another way as well:
    In the app, choose "Photos" (leads to collections)


    Deleting photographs-image-616386471.jpg

    Then Select (upper right):


    Deleting photographs-image-1242253220.jpg

    This will show "Select" next to every date:

    When you tap it, all the photos from that date will be check marked, and you can delete them at once.

    I go to albums
    I select the album
    I click on edit
    The only option I get on screen is done or the plus sign
    No delete icon

    To delete the album, don't open it.

    Could you possibly post a screenshot? It'll make helping you easier.

    The first picture shows you my albums.....



    Deleting photographs-image-3170083925.jpg

    The second photo is after pressing the select option on the top right of the screen and then ticking the first row of photos



    Deleting photographs-image-212831360.jpg

    There is no option (icon) to allow deletion.
    If i chose the edit from this screen it just takes me to a photo edit screen?

    Likewise if I click edit on the albums screen you will see the only one with a cross on it is the o'rielly's album, not the Brisbane 2012 that I am trying to delete?

    Did you sync the Brisbane photos to your iPad via iTunes (computer)?

    I don't know how it works with that app, but usually you can't delete photos synced to your iPad when you use iTunes on your computer for this.

    Pictures that can be deleted on the iPad:
    Those that you imported from a camera/SD card directly to your device, pictures saved from a browser or from emails, photos taken with the iPad camera.

    I guess you'll have to use Photosync again to delete the photos from Brisbane, or look for something else that can remove them from your device.
