    If the photos are synced from your computer you will have to uncheck their folders in iTunes so they won't sync to the iPad. If the photos were added to the iPad by copying from an Internet site, or via the camera, there should be an icon of a little trash can on the upper right side when you touch on the picture as if you were going to show the choice to go back to the camera roll. You can also select Edit when looking at the thumbnail icons of the pictures. Touch to select some of the pictures and touch the delete button on the top left.

    I've noticed that when a photo is taken it appears in a number of places on the iPad. I had assumed that when one was deleted it would go from all the places it appeared in eg Camera Roll, My photo stream, Last imported, All Imported, Albums (hopefully there is no etc,etc). Unfortunately having deleted a couple this evening I see they don't go from all places
    Conscious of the limited capacity of an iPad compared with a PC , mines a 16gb model, I wondered if there is any way one can stop them appearing in so many places to start with?

    When you take a photo it should only go two places.

    The camera roll; always.

    Photo Stream; if you have it enabled in Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream. Each of these places is separate, and you will need to delete photos from them separately.

    The purpose of Photo Stream is to make the photos you take available on all your devices (and computer if setup that way). If you don't need or want that, turn it off on all the devices and computer. Photo Stream only keeps the last 30 days or 1000 pictures. I'm not sure which cuts off first, since I've never gone over either.

    When you delete a picture from Photos Stream it should end up deleted on all devices. The computer should keep all photos unless you delete them there. Hold in mind that since the updating is happening over the internet, changes may be delayed by a slow connection or one or more devices being off line.

    You may see copies of a photo in other places, but these are only copies.

    If you create an album in Photos on the iPad (as opposed to syncing through iTunes) the album consists of nothing but links to the original photo. Deleting it there deletes it everywhere. That will not affect a photo in Photo Stream, since it is not a link, but a completely different copy being synced from iCloud.

    The All Photos tab is that. Every photo, whether in album, camera roll, or Photo Stream. It's not a copy or a link, just another way of viewing the photos.

    I hope this helps.

    To delete synced photos
    1.In iTunes, select the device icon in the Devices list on the left. Click the Photos tab in the resulting window.
    2.Choose "Sync photos from."
    On a Mac, choose iPhoto or Aperture from the pop-up menu.
    On a Windows PC, choose Photoshop Album or Photoshop Elements from the pop-up menu.
    3.Choose "Selected albums" and deselect the albums or collections you want to delete.

    To delete Camera Roll photos
    There are two methods to delete photos from iPad Camera Roll:
    Import the Camera Roll to your computer, choosing to delete items after import.
    or
    Delete photos from your device manually. Open the Photos application, open the Camera Roll, tap the Action button, tap each photo to select it, and tap the Delete button.
    Note: For photos you want to save for later, import them to your computer before deleting them from the Camera Roll.
