There are supposed to be two ways to delete photos on the iPad, that is, not using iTunes sync. Tap a photo then tap the trash can in the upper right corner and then confirm the deletion. Or, tap the rectangle with the arrow in the upper right corner, tap each photo and then tap the red Delete button in the upper left side.
That works easily if photos are not duplicated in the saved photos album. If there are two or more copies of the same photo, I can only delete the first occurrence of the photo. If I tap the second copy the trash can does not appear, nor will the red Delete button work.
Has anyone else had this experience? Is there a reason why one must delete the first copy and not the second? Or is this just the way it is designed?
Curious about why deletion of multiple copies works this way.

I am new to using mac in general. I just made my account, and accidentally imported all my photos from my computer (pc). I plug in my ipad, and I can not delete the photos I've already imported. Unlike my ipod, in which I can choose which ones I want and then import. How do I do this? I'm sorry but I need it broken down crayola style... I'm a new user.
My paranoia commands me to backup my photos in the field. I imported my RAW images with the camera connection kit. It worked real well. When I got home I uploaded the photos to my computer. Now I want to remove them from my iPad. How do I do this, without deleting each of the 180 photos one at a time? Is there a delete all option I am missing?
I added photos to my iPad using the camera connector kit and was unable to delete them on the iPad itself. And for some reason, the photos came in as squares with either JPG or THM on them. You see nothing of the picture itself. The iPad seems to have some flaws in the picture area. I have plenty of free space so I do not understand this. Has anyone else had weird downloads like this? I am afraid to delete my photos from the card! I will download them to my MacBook, but shouldn't have to do that. Then I will have to try to find a way to remove the ugly 'blank' squares from my iPad.
How can I delete albums transferred to my iPad? Not the camera roll but the actual photos that have been Downloadded via synching? As have now gone onto my pc and cleared out the ones I don't want and have been told I need to delete my albums before re-synching - is that right? Or if I just re-synch will they automatically clear the ones already on my iPad and replace?
1. Why can't I delete photos directly from Photos in my iPad?2. Is there a way to reset iPad to get rid of photos only without loosing other info?3. Why does iPad have to be connected to the computer and photos ave to be deleted from iPhoto in order to delete them from the iPad when it is so simple to delete in iPhone, for example?
When I click the Button to make the Delete Visible, I do see the Delete Button, but it is no longer Bright as before. The button stays light, to signal that the button is not active. I am capable of clicking on the photos to highlite the ones that I want to delete, but it will not let me delete it.
when I got the Ipad2 last week... 110 or photos went on it.. I never put it there but I guess when I synced or something they all went there.ince then I have taken a few photos and ok they went there and I have them in albums.

1. how do I delete some photos that are not only in albums but on the whole screen .. 2. how do I delete a downloaded photo and gee I dont know what else to say as i am prob.
I went on a trip recently, with my iPad as the sole computer for the trip, which worked surprisingly well. I ordered looong ahead of time, and received, the Camera Connection Kit for it, and used that to empty some SD cards during the trip. And now, wow, do I regret that. With 20GB of photos on there, they synced to Lightroom just fine, but deleting them off my iPad was a chore. Having to tap every single photo to select them for deletion was just absurd.
I took my iPad to a trip recently instead of my laptop, which proved to be a very good decision: it's light, convenient, and with the camera kit, importing and reviewing pic is a breeze. Now that I'm back, all the pic are exported to my home machine. But when I try to delete the pics, I realize I can't do batch delete in the iPad. I also try to do it in iTunes or iPhoto, but still no luck. I have 2000+ pic in my iPad. Do I need to delete them manually one by one?
So I got the camera kit a few days ago. I belong to a group of photographers that meet up and shot. This weekend we did a model shot at a park and I ended up taking about 300 shots. We went to a bar for drinks and I imported the photos to my iPad (this is awesome by the way). When I got home, I imported all the files into Lightroom. No problems at all. Now, I have an event in the the photos app that shows the date the pictures were imported. How do I delete that event? I can not find an option to Unsync the in iTunes and the only way I can figure is to go in one by one and delete all the pictures one at a time. Can someone point me if the righ direction?~
