Can't delete photos from iPhone - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Photos synced to the phone have to be synced off. They cannot be deleted normally. Re-connect your phone to your computer and select it. Look for the row of options at the top that say Summary-Info-Music-Movies etc. and select the photos tab. You can then uncheck the sync photos option and apply and it will remove those photos.

Not wanna sound like Android fan-boy, but I just select delete and delete it and if anything I plug the device to my PC, open the folder and delete as in Windows. I'd ask for that much control over my device at the very least.shCEsE

The easiest way is to connect it to your computer and open the camera roll as a digital camera with the iPhone Data Eraser.
Alternatively, on the phone, open the camera roll, if it isn't displaying thumbnails tap the "camera roll" label on the upper left. Then tap the box with an arrow on the bottom of the screen, tap each photo you want to delete once, then tap to delete photos from iPhone.

(1) Open iTunes from your computer's icon and connect your iphone to the computer,

If you have Windows 07, pull that screen over to the side so it takes up 1/2 of your screen and let it wait until you set up your albums/photos on the other 1/2 of the screen to iPhone Data Eraser.
(3) Open My Documents and get to your photo albums/folders. Put this on the other 1/2 of your screen. (By the way, if you already have albums you downloaded from the computer to your iphone, then you know you have to download albums, not individual photos).
(4) Either delete the unwanted photos from the computer's album in question or move the unwanted photos into a separate folder/album that you can create and drag them to - that's what I did so I wouldn't lose them.
(5) Go back to the iTunes site and check the albums you want synced - you must check all that you want because, even though you already have others in there besides "this one," it starts all over again.
(6) Apply. To delete an entire album, just don't check that one again and sync.
This may help.

I just found out an easy way to delete photos from iPhone not too long ago just by messing around with my phone. A very easy and fast way to do this is by first going to your photos and click on camera roll. Then click on edit located on the top right hand corner. Select a the photos you want to get rid of, and finally click the "delete" option, which is the 3rd one over at the bottom of your screen. P.s. you can also choose to save them to another photo file or share them via email or in a text message.
Hope iPhone Data Eraser can help you!!!

The fastest way to delete pictures from your iPhone's camera roll is to go to the "Moments" section in your Photos app and use the select button to delete whole days at a time. In your Photos app, go to Years -> Collections -> Moments and tap the "Select" button in the top right. Now you can select a whole day with another select button, or individual pics from within a day by tapping on each photo. When you have selected everything you want to delete tap the trash icon. And in addition you can also try this app called delete iPhone photos it will help you a lot.

To delete a photo, find it in your Photos app and then tap 'Select' in the top right corner. Now, tap the bin icon in the bottom right corner and tap 'Delete photo.'

You can select multiple photos at once and then tap the bin icon to delete iphone photos selected.
If you've created your own folder of photographs and want to delete the whole thing, go to the Albums view and then tap 'Edit' in the top right corner. You can now tap the red circle that appears on the left to delete the album. You won't be able to do this with the default folders created by Apple.

In iOS 8, however, when you delete photographs by following the instructions above, they don't actually delete from your iPhone or iPad immediately. Instead, it moves the photos to the 'Recently Deleted' folder where it will remain for 30 days unless you go to the folder and delete it from there. This is handy when you accidentally delete a photograph, but if there's a photo you really want to remove from your iPhone or iPad you'll need to remember to delete it from here too here in erase photos from ipad also you can do this.

All you need to do is tap 'Select' and then tap 'Delete All' or select individual photos.
It's important to remember that, if you don't use iCloud and you back up your iPhone or iPad via iTunes, your most recent backup might contain the photograph you've deleted. Back up again once you've deleted the photos you don't want to overwrite it.
