    Deleting Pictures

    Is there a way to delete pictures on the iPad directly?

    Pix from my iPhone have a "trash can" to delete them. Pix downloaded from a folder on my PC coming from a digital camera don't have that option.

    Go to the all photos section and click the button that looks like a send email button it will reveal a delete button and let you select all the photos you want gone.

    If you go to the first tab labeled photos and follow my instructions you will be able to.

    Deleting Pix

    Following the instructions, I do get the delete icon, but it doesn't allow any pix to actually be deleted. If you check a photo to copy or email the icon adds the number of items checked. If you check a pic and press delete, nothing happens for me?

    Maybe you could try the instructions on how to delete more than one at a time:

    How Can I Delete More Than One Photo from My iPad

    And attempt to delete more than one picture.

    Which would be exactly what I already posted in here...only in my words instead of a blog.

    I tried your directions, but like KGB, nothing happens when I push on the red delete button. I'm not sure why.
    Also, I do not have a "saved photos" tab, only an "albums" tab and a "photos" tab. Do you have three tabs on top or only two?
