    Hi , I'm a ipad beginner struggling to delete some photos. I copied most stuff off my computer including a load of rubbish pics. Some I have deleted using trash can but others have no trash can option was told to press on pic to get delete option but nothing happens. Can anyone advise?

    If you put the photos on your iPad using iTunes, you will have to use iTunes to delete those photos; you can't delete them on the iPad itself.

    So, connect your iPad to iTunes, uncheck the photos you want removed and sync the iPad. The photos should then be gone.
