    From the iPad simply swipe the desired photo to delete.

    Bear in mind though if they still reside on the PC with iTunes next time you sync they will be recreated on the iPad unless you do a manual select/sync.

    Also if you use photo stream I am not sure if you delete or hide pics appearing on your iPad.

    Hi Joe - this is always a confusing issue, much of which IMO is Apple's doing and related to how the native Photo app functions - frustrating(ly)! :confused:

    Below quoted is a response that I left recently in another thread - hope this might help; if not, please post back - good luck! :)

    sometimes is not that simple as swiping on the device to delete it. I had some photos on an iPad that simply refused to delete. I had to sync it again with itunes to be able to delete them from the iTunes. I was never able to delete it from the device.

    Yes, correct! :) If photos are added to the iPad by an iTunes sync and exist on your computer in a folder/album, then the images cannot be deleted from the iPad; however, these images can be added to 'Albums' created on the Photo app of the iPad (as explained in my quote previously). Now, if one wants to remove these 'synced' images from the iPad, the steps needed must be done on the computer.

    Thanks for the post, I called a friend and he gave me some good advice, here's what he said to do....open the album double click on the image and in the upper right corner is the trash can, simply click the trash can and it will prompt you for an answer," delete" click and it's gone.
    Thanks for everyone' help

    Joe

    Hi Joe,

    Well, for the life of me, I cannot delete photos w/i an album that was synced from my computer; just as a visual explanation, below is a screenshot of my opened Photo app w/ 'albums' selected. Of course, the 'Camera Roll' & 'All Imported' (mainly from my digital camera) permit deletion of photos (which will be permanently erased from the iPad). The 'Test' album is one that I made w/i the photo app and images from any of the other albums can be added.

    Now the albums labeled 'iPad Photos' & 'Kachinas' reside on my laptop's hard drive and are the ones that will sync w/ iTunes (I use the iPad one to add, or delete, only the photos I wish placed on the iPad from the computer) - w/i those albums I cannot find a way to delete the images from the iPad; now, these images can be added to other Photo app made albums, such as 'Test' in my case, and in those albums the image can be removed, i.e. the link to the image, however the original pic will remain in the synced album.

    I may be 'missing something' but that is my understanding (at the moment) of how the Photo app functions - Dave :)
