Delete Photos on iPad

Posted on January 08, 2011 by editor

Q: "My kids have learned how to take screen captures on the Apple iPad which means that I now have tons of them in my Saved Photos album. Not good. Is there a fast and easy way to delete photos on iPad?"

A: You're in luck, because apparently the folks at Apple have also had a similar experience because they do let you work with more than one photos at a time, though it's not particularly obvious how to do so when you're viewing an album. The good news, though, is that it also lets you easily collect up 3-4 photographs or pictures and email them to a friend, if you're so inclined.

How to Delete Photos from iPad?

Step 1: First step is one that you have already figured out: tap on the "Photos" icon. In the Albums view, notice that you have "Saved Photos" as an option. Choose it.

Step 3: Tap on that icon and you'll see the top bar change to indicate you can select more than one photo and take a group action with those selected, rather than tap to see a specific photograph.
