    I downloaded all my photos from my laptop Windows XP "My Pictures" on to my new I Pad 2 and find I can't delete them but I can edit them. :( Would really appreciate some help.

    Top upper right when in Photos and the Album you want to delete photos from you will see an arrow in a box, tap that. Then you select the photos you want to delete and then tap the Remove button.

    Thank you Redneck_Randy but when I click the arrow I only get these options. Email photo,Message, Assign to contact, Use as wallpaper, Tweer, Print or copy photo. :eek:

    If you synched photos via iTunes, you'll have to use iTunes to remove them.

    Your not in the Album because you don't get those options. Once you click on the arrow you should see the delete button at the top left in red with grayed out letters. Once you tap an image to delete a blue circle with a check mark will appear then you click the delete button which is now red with white letters on the button.

    Another way to delete

    Click Photos at the top center in Photos directory. Tap a photo you want to delete, it will load to another window, at the upper right you will see a trash can. Tap it to delete the photo.

    OP says the photos were synched via iTunes. You can't delete from iPad if you synched via iTunes.

    I am a very new iPad 2 owner.
    I have an IPhone and a laptop.
    It seems that I do not understand the sharing concepts.
    When I opened theapp Photos, I find that the iPad has acquired 4,600 photos from my computer and from my iPhone and are arranged in a similar structure of folders.
    How can I remove them from my iPad without losing them from my phone and laptop?

    I removed all the original photos from the computer where they were originally hoping that they would then be removed from my iPad. Instead the iPad seems to have all of the photos but the albums seem to have all been mixed up.

    Help please oh great gurus.
