    If this photo is in an album/folder you are syncing through iTunes, you will need to remove it from that folder on the computer and re-sync.

    iTunes does a one way sync, computer to iPad. You can't edit this type of album on the iPad. Only at the source.

    Hi there
    At the moment I find the whole iPad great and thanks for getting back.There's always so much to lean Concerning the photo I didn't sync though iTunes. It just appeared in one of the headings along the top when I open photos. It just came up in places, I don't like it and can't delete in the normal way

    Places isn't an album. It is a way of browsing photos that have GPS data associated with them. If the photo is showing up in the Places tab, it's also in another album. If that is not the camera roll or an imported album, then it was synced and can not be deleted directly.

    Find the album the photo is in and you'll be on your way to figuring out how to delete it.

    Thanks a lot for that. I don't hold out to much hope for this.
    I didn't sync it from iTunes on my laptop
    I Was just playing with the google maps app, the next thing I see my house on the map, ah I thought that looks interesting, then I got the photo in places along the top of the device page to the right of the camera roll, it's only a no good photo but !!
    Still picking up what I want the iPad to do for me so as they say "be careful what u wish for"

    You probably took a screen shot by accident. You do that by briefly pressing the home and power button at the same time. This saves your current view as a picture to the camera roll in the Photos app.

    Comes in handy now and then.

    I don't mind admitting there were times I thought of emigrating to another tablet. It has been difficult..
