    Unfortunately you can't, these are new features to the Photos app. i find them a bit annoying but they can't be disabled or deleted from what I've searched. If you find a way, let me know. I find these extra folders annoying, but what can you do.

    I discovered how to remove the photos from Places, after spending some time fiddling with syncing my iPad to get rid of them.

    Removing the offending pix from the photo folders contained in a main folder that I use when syncing pix from my iMac was not enough.

    I found that by renewing the pathway in the iTunes Sync Photos window to the main photo folder on my iMac after removing the pix did the trick, for whatever reason. The pathway remained the same.

    When syncing, I use the Selected folders choice, so I cant say it would work if I had chosen All folders or had I been using Apples Photos app.

    The Places folder, albeit empty, remained.
