    I have several photo albums that were on my old phone (Droid Global) and on my laptop that have been put on my iphone. I am wanting to take those off to free up space. I have tried the tutorials for going through iTunes but nothing seems to make a difference. Can someone offer step-by-step instructions on how to do this please? Thanks!

    1. Initiate the Photos app
    2. Tap on "Albums at the bottom of the screen.
    3. Tap on "Edit" in the upper right corner.
    4. Tap on the RED circle with in minus sign inside next the the albums you want to delete from your device.
    5. Tap on "Delete" and then tap on "Delete Album(s)" at the bottom of the screen
    ​6. When you're done, tap on "Done" in the upper right corner.

    The steps JustMe'D put will only delete albums created on the phone. Since the OP said the albums are coming from the laptop then you have three choices. You can delete the albums on the laptop and sync the phone. You can change the location that is being used to sync photos to the phone or you can change what folders are being synced to the phone. The steps are

    Connect to itunes
    Select your iPhone
    In the right column select "Photos"
    Select "sync Photos"
    Then you can select the location to use to sync the photos, if this is already set to a location you can browse to a different location (Option 2)

    or
    Select "Selected Folders" you will see a list of all the folders in the location (Option 3)
    Uncheck whatever you don't want on the phone
