I just had my daughter look at hers and she has an edit button....................I sure hope I am explaining myself well. I am so sorry if I have caused confusion.

    You've explained yourself well. If I were you, I'd restore as new after performing an iTunes backup.

    Ok, i went through a few steps - here's what i've come up with & maybe this will help you out joyfulmom

    1) If you double click home button from the lock screen (without doing the "slide to unlock") and access your camera roll from there, you can take a pic, OR tap on a pic and ONLY delete one at a time. no edit button is present.

    2) If you actually go into the photos app and tap on "camera roll" & open it up, top left is the 'albums' tab, bottom left is 'box w/arrow' and middle is the play arrow. No edit button. NOW if you actually tap on a photo to view it seperately THEN the 'edit' button shows up in the right corner, along with the 'delete' in the bottom right(garbage can) It also has the camera roll in the top left corner and box w/arrow in bottom left corner. top middle shows 1,250 of 1,250 (on mine) the # of pic compared to how many overall are avail.

    3) Now going back to just opening up the photos app/camera roll & seeing thumbnails of all your pics avail, if you tap on the box w/arrow (bottom left) you then have the option to go through and start tapping on pics showing circle w/check in it for each one you chose with the bottom options to then either "share, add to or delete" for those ones you have "checked" off.

    4) One other thing also, when opening the photo app, and you see your camera roll with any other folders you have - top right you will see an 'edit' tab which you can either delete an entire folder all at once by tapping the cirlce with dash in it OR on the right side the "3 lined" looking tab to re-order your folders into what ever order you chose.

    Hopefully this may help you
    btw, i'm on 6.1.2 also

    Thank you everyone who has tried helping me out..............I went in a did a restore and that didn't help either. So my next step is to take it to an Apple store and have them check it out. Pink thanks for your help...........Step 3 really helped me and can delete multiple pictures at once until I can get to the Apple store. Thanks again everyone!

    You are 100% correct and that is exactly what I have as well. You have done nothing wrong nor have you caused any confusion so it should be a few of us to maybe have asked you better questions so at this point I would have to side with 'D and say your photo app may be corrupted which might entail a complete restore as "NEW" in iTunes or if you don't feel comfortable doing that you might want to visit the Apple store genius bar if you have one near you.

    Please let us know what happens ands best of luck. Let me say sorry for your situation. Have a great weekend.

    Well as usual I have to give credit where credit is due and Pink is kind of like me and likes to be thorough in her advice. I just opened my photo app from my home screen and of course immediatly where I see "Albums" I have a + on the left and "Edit" on the right which is what she explains. When going into the camera roll I have thumbnails and once again everything at the bottom she also explained in one of her steps including the "Edit" button top right.

    So as always everything she has I have and you should have. If not then there is something definitly wrong with your app and would warrant a store visit to Apple.

    Thank you for hanging in there with us and let us all know how things turn out.

    I wanted to mention one last thing because I wonder if I am explaining it right.................Go to photos, there you see your albums, click on camera roll and open, up top you see the albums arrow on the left and on the right I had always had the edit button............that's what is missing now. Just wanted to put it in steps in case I'm not explaining myself well.....lol.

    Whether you were right or wrong is not the issue and I'm sure there are people who would find what you stated as appropriate. However, the recipient was insulted and taken aback by the tone of your reply and as a mod looking at the totality of the situation & the forum rules, I agree that your reply was a bit out of line. Having said that, does that mean that you can't or shouldn't post your opinions? Of course not. Keep on participating as you've been and as stated by the forum rules, "Consider the tone of your posts before pressing the submit button." Anyway, you're still alright in my book. Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend...

    I understand what your saying jm2 and l don't have the edit tab there either:
    Edit button missing from Camera Roll??-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1363528727.915151.jpg

    The edit button doesn't show up top right until I actually tap into a wp- then it appears in the top right:
    Edit button missing from Camera Roll??-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1363528824.469803.jpg

    now I can honestly say that I don't recall of that edit button was ever there or not lol. Goes to show how much attention I pay with that. Now I just checked my daughters on 6.0.1 and hers does show it. Strange. Maybe with 6.1.2 they took that away

    jm2, ok there's nothing wrong with your device (or mine lol) I just checked this "edit" tab feature both of us are missing. Here's the deal: when my daughter opens into that part of the camera roll where it shows & ours doesn't, tapping on that on hers does the same exact function as ours does when we tap on the bottoms left "arrow box". I hope that made sense the way I explained it lol.

    Yes it is charlyee. Ok, I think i see whats going on here & i hope i don't confuse anyone here lol. I've noticed a pattern, and it must be how the photos app "adjusts" itself accordingly.

    Charlyee, on yours, you have the whole bottom taking up by "albums, photostream & places(geotagging)" On one of my daughters(6.0), hers is the same except the bottom where your photo stream is, is an "arrow" symbol.

    Now, on mine(6.1.2) as well as my other daughters phone(hers is 6.0.1) we both only have the arrow box on the bottom left and the arrow icon in the middle, because neither one of us have "palces(geotagging)"

    SO, in theory because yours is taken up on the bottom by other functions, the photos app by default with put that "edit" tab up top right for you to have those additional functions that we 'normally' have with the arrow box that appears on the bottom left of ours!

    Now, i really hope that made sense to everyone LOL. So, i still say nothing is wrong with anyones device, its just how the photo app adapts to those additional items you(charlyee) and others may have there, while myself, daughter etc. don't

    Thanks for the great explanation Pink, that makes sense.

    Mine was out of the box like that. I didn't make any changes other than doing to updates.

    Glad there is nothing wrong with anyone's phone. 😊

    your welcome !! I wouldnt have been able to perceive this if i didn't 'study' your ss, and then go back & review both of my daughters as well. THATS when i noticed the difference and what was causing the 'edit' tab to be present or not.

    I personally believe joyful that you explained yourself quite well and let me say to you as i already had that I am sorry you had to hear the clutter and not just everyone willing to help. This forum is gnerally not like this but every once in awhile people have to be reminded of their behavior.

    The bottom line is I and everyone else got your meaning perfectly and what you stated is CORRECT. You should have the edit button as you have explained and i am going to air on the side of the Mod meaning 'D who might think that somehow your app may have become corrupted so therefore I believe he mentioned to USB to iTunes and set up as new after a backup and see if this does not fix it.

    We are hear to assist you no matter what.
