    Also, if you just want to delete an individual photo, you can tap a photo, tap the trash can, and select "Delete Photo."

    Hi NHStella - welcome to the forum! :)

    You've already received some excellent advice on deleting images in the iPad's native Photo app - now these steps apply to your pictures in the 'Camera Roll' or those in 'Albums' that you create w/i the app. Some irritating features of this program: 1) Images or folders (albums) that you import into the app via iTunes cannot be deleted on the iPad - a sync (w/ the correct selections) must be done; and 2) Also, if you have created an album(s) w/i the app, and then delete the same images in the 'Camera Roll', those pictures will be removed from your created albums because only links (not duplications) are made in the created albums - can be quite frustrating if not fully understood. Hope that this additional information helps - good luck.
