    iPad 2 - iOS 5. I want to delete some albums from Photos. The manual says select edit and a stop sign will appear next to the albums, it doesn't!
    Only thing that happens when I pressed edit, is a "New Album" icon appears. I can rearrange albums, but that is all.

    You can only delete photos from the Camera, Saved, or Imported rolls/albums. Pictures that were synced through iTunes can not be removed except by changing your iTunes sync settings, or editing the synced folder on the computer and re-syncing.

    Photos in albums you create on the iPad can be deleted only if they were added from one of the same three editable albums. If they were added from a synced album they can only be removed from your created album.

    The PhotoStream can not be deleted. You can only reset the entire stream (removing all pictures) through the icloud.com site; ; which does not work in Safari on the iPad.

    I'm sorry to say but I have found my own way to remove albums but you will lose all images in that album.

    How? Here:
    Open iTunes
    Go to iPhone/iPod/iPad
    Photos tab
    Now on your desktop MOVE the folder that the album is named after
    Sync
    iTunes gives you an error
    Go check your albums it should be gone worked for my on the following devices all running iOS 5 except for 1
    iPhone 4 (iOS 5.0.1)
    iPod 3 (iOS 5.0.1)
    iPod 4 (iOS 5.0.1)
    iPhone 3g (iOS 4.2.1)
