    How can I delete a photo album or a picture in an album, from Albums on my ipad 2. I've tried everything but no luck, no DELETE button in sight. Help

    To delete albums, tap Edit in the upper right corner, then this comes:

    It shows you which albums can be deleted. It works like deleting an app.

    If you want to delete a photo, open an album, again: tap Edit (upper right corner) to show this:

    Tap the picture(s) you intend to delete. The ones you tap get marked; then you'll see "Delete" (upper left corner). Tap it to delete the picture(s).

    JA, Thanks, I just realized that I have two different types of albums, normal acting albums that got there in the normal fashion and ones that were imported from a PC via photostream. The later appear normal but act differently when trying to delete.

    In this case you'll need to sync to iTunes on your pc to delete these albums. You can't do it with your iPad.
