    Hi I have just synched and downloaded thousands of photos from my pc, but would like to delete some of them but there is no option in the edit field to do this, do I have to delete from my pc and then re-synch or is there a way I can do this on the iPad?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, the only way to delete photos off the iPad that you have put ON the iPad with iTunes is to use iTunes. So, yeah, you'll have to sort it all out on iTunes, then re-sync. Sorry.

    Well, syncing can elicit surprises not expected - :eek:

    Below is a brief quote that I left in another thread concerning the native iPad Photo App - not sure 'how many' photos you really want on your iPad but one way to handle this issue is to just sync a portion of your images by making folder(s) (or sub-folders) w/ appropriate names (such as 'iPad Photos') - place the images you want w/i these folders and then do a manual sync by checking only those folders that you want on your iPad - also keep in mind that if you 'uncheck' these on your computer, the images will be deleted on the iPad, i.e. remove the ones you no longer want on the iPad from your computer's folders and then sync again - good luck and hope this helps! :)

    Thanks again. Also I am now on my pc and deleting stuff that is blurred or I don't want etc. do I have to delete what i have already on my iPad before I synch with what I have now deleted on my pc or will this just override when I sync?

    Also I have looked on iTunes and cannot find where the photos are stored so I am presuming they are just being imported where I store my photos on my pc and not iTunes account, is that right?

    Correct. They will just be on your c drive in "my pictures" unless you moved them.
