How to delete photos and albums from the iPad ‘Photos’ app

In this walk through we will be showing you how to delete photos and albums from the iPad’s Photos App.

NOTE: When transferring photos from your device to device or computer to device, you can delete the photos transferred via our app. To do so, you will have to manually delete the photos from the Photos App directly. You will find the walk through below.

If you synced your photos via iTunes you will not be able to delete these via the Photos App. You will have to go through iTunes to delete those photos from your computer. Plug in your device and then from there, you will have to unsync them.
