    Tried the search engine without success and also went through a couple of hundred existing threads without finding an answer.
    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

    Thanks Semel for the hint but this does work for me. The top right box with an arrow inside does not show a delete but on mine shows "email photo, message, use as wallpaper, tweet, print and copy photo".
    So still stuck! Paul

    Semel,
    I had tried that before but still no joy. The albums do not show any options in the top right corner apart from "edit" which only enables you to create a new album. If you open an album and do not select any photograph and touch "edit" it immediately reverts to a blue cancel. Then touch it again and it says edit again. Once you highlight a photo then the options are what I have already written in the thread above.
    So still a mystery to me where I can find a delete button whether a single photo or an album.
    The reason why I want to delete these photographs is that they are actually photo scans of documents and came onto the IPad when I was synchronising automatically. I wonder whether if I deleted the photos on my computer and then synchronised again whether they would delete themselves but I cannot believe that that would be the case.

    Share ,copy ,send to and cancel are the only options I see at the top. It seems we can't delete pictures sync'd from a computer.

    Hopefully this works for me.. In this first image you see the arrow in the box in the top right hand corner, tap that and you you will see the second image (I am in 1 of my albums not my photo library)

    [​IMG]

    Now in this second Image you will get a few options in the top left corner.. In my image it says remove because I am in an album but if you are in your photo library it will say delete where it says remove in this image below.

    Hope this helps and you understand

    NSF,
    That is really helpful and yes I was going from albums. Now doing it from photos you are right that by tapping the arrow 3 options appear. Mine says share, copy and delete (not the remove yours says). I thought I had or should I say you had cracked it. 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
