    This is happening to me too since the most recent upgrade.  The upgrade corrected the previous issue of not being able to delete photos from Photo Stream, but now all my pictures stored under Photos are in triplicate with no trash barrel icon visible with which to delete them!  The upgrade did not impact photos on my iPhone-only on the iPad.

    Same issue too, new iPad and iPhoto.  Seems like duplicates are getting created every time the 'edit' button is pressed.  The issue for me is the lack of 'delete' button.  I've got 42 'edited' pictures in iPhoto and no way to remove them.  iPhoto needs a 'delete/trash can' button.  Update needed soon.  Scott

    I had same problem and decided to remove iPhoto and I am now learning photo touch. I will probably try iPhoto again when it is updated.

    I called AppleCare about this on Monday and referred them to this discussion.  They bumped it up to a supervisor or whatever they call them and he's looking into it.

     

    It might be a good idea for the rest of you to "make some noise" about it if you want to see it fixed.

    I am experiencing the same problem on my 3rd Generation iPad.  This is becoming a frustration.

    I have called and emailed Apple again and no satisfactory response.  Hope they are working on a MAJOR upgrade.

    I called Apple and they put me through to a senior advisor. They are well aware of this and are working on a solution, and then he emailed me, and is suppossed to call me back with an update by Friday.

    ============

    Hi Ed,

     

    As we discussed, my contact information is below.  Once I hear back from our engineers, I'll follow up with you, even if it's to let you know we're still working on a solution.

     

    Sincerely,

    Scott Holmes

    Apple Senior Advisor

    =============

     

    He advised me to have as many people call as possible and refer them to this thread.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Ed

    Thanks a lot, folks.

     

    Didn't even know I had a problem until I stumbled onto this thread, lol.

     

    Been basically experimenting w/iPhoto and Photos app in support of iMovie to determine how useful iMovie can be as a can be as a "rough cut" video tool while traveling. (pretty darned nice -- well worth the upgrde to the new iPad from original)

     

    Stopped even looking at the photos page in iPhoto once I determined the Photos app is the only place I can actually delete photos. 

     

    Having completed my iMovie experiments satisfactorily, I was going thru all my photos and video clips culling those I determined useless. I decided to explore the delete message about photos not being removed from the library.

     

    A forum search eventually. Fought me here, so thot I'd toss in a couple pennies worth.

     

    What I see is all photos with many having one or two duplicates which can be explained as the original and an edit or two.

     

    THEN, I see about 40 copies off too many photos to bother counting. All of them have been used in iMovie. Most are photos I took using the iPad.  But many are photos synced via iTunes before we left on our trip. A couple are actually mp4 video clip imported in the synced folders ( which became albums on the iPad.

     

    But most interesting of all is 40 copies of the first video I completed and "shared" to the camera roll.  But Only the last version of the other three videos show up. And, yess, since it is all experimental, I have redone all of those videos at least five times to change little things.

     

    Interesting note, tho.  That first video is the only one whose project  I have deleted from iMovie.

     

    My turn to drive. Gotta go.

    I've got this aswell!!!! Very irritating. What's more annoying is that I've ended up deleting a really great pic that I took with the iPad while on vaction in NY, thinking that I had duplicates. I deleted them from the 'edited' folder - (and I've got 2 'last import' folders!) thinking they'd still be on the camera roll. Now all gone!!!

     

    Easy to delete from camera roll, but impossible to delete the synced duplicates.

     

    I have now deleted iPhoto from the iPad. I will miss the fun editing and better slideshow options compared to the normal Photos app, (and the £2.99) but nothing else.
