    Like I said it is the first tab labeled photos. I just tried it and it worked fine, hit the button that looks like send email, then select photos and hit delete, if you still can't figure it out I'll post screenshots later.

    Won't work with photos synced through iTunes

    After reading the online help about photos, it states for deleting photos that were synced through iTunes, you need to delete them from the iTunes folder and then re-sync.

    That's probably why it won't work for me (and for KGB)

    What I noticed is...

    When under "Photos" TAB tap the "swirling arrow", the red "Delete" button appears, select each photo you want deleted , then press "Delete".

    When under "ALBUMS" TAB [Only Saved Photos Album can have photos deleted from this area.] Open the "Saved Photos Album", again press the "swirling arrow", the red "Delete" button appears, select all the photos you want deleted, then press "Delete".

    When under "Places" TAB You can not delete any photos from this view.

    KEY:
    BOLD is pressed buttons or Tabs (things you actually press or tap)
    Underlined is button appearances (things that appear as buttons)

    Hope this is clear enough to help some one ;)

    I must be missing something here, I followed your instructions and I cannot delete the photos from the Ipad. I go to the photos tab see all my photos select the icon on the far right (box with a arrow leaving it). Three new tabs appear email, copy and delete. I then pick a few photos which show the check mark on them and then hit delete tab and not a thing happens.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Here's my observations. The photos I synced via iTunes cannot be deleted . While photos I downloaded via dropbox can. If deleting photos synced via iTunes can be deleted. Please teach me .

    Delete photos

    Same here. Puts a checkmark on the photo but the red delete button does not respond.
