Deleting pictures from iPad
Over the past 6 months I've accumulated lots of various pictures on my iPad. Some were copied over from my iPhone, some saved from emails & some synced via iTunes (from a dedicated folder on my Win 7 laptop).
I have just decided to clear a lot out & delete them, but seem to be having problems actually removing them. I have tried to select & delete them from the iPad itself, but it doesn't give me an active delete button..... & I have tried arranging the folder it syncs with on my laptop to only have the pics I want in it - this just resulted in all of the original pics in there & then duplicates of the synced ones.
It's probably something very simple that I'm missing, but can anyone offer any advice?

You can't delete photos directly from the iPad. The pictures have to be deleted from the folders being synced. If you have and it still shows the pictures your picture database file may be screwed up. You can try rebooting or you can try unchecking the sync this will remove all the pictures. Then you can reboot the iPad and re-sync everything back to the iPad.

Open iTunes, then leave each album sent to iPad that is to be deleted..
Check whether Photos are sync from iPhoto. Press 'Sync' button in lower corner of iTunes screen. Now check iPad and confirm all photos have been deleted. I hope this will help you..
