    To delete synced photos and videos


    1. In iTunes, select the device icon in the Devices list on the left. Click the Photos tab in the resulting window.
    2. Choose "Sync photos from."
      • On a Mac, choose iPhoto or Aperture from the pop-up menu.
      • On a Windows PC, choose Photoshop Album or Photoshop Elements from the pop-up menu.
    3. Choose "Selected albums" and deselect the albums or collections you want to delete.
    4. Click Apply.

    Photos that were synced from your computer using iTunes can only be deleted by de-selecting them from the folder from where they were synced -  and then re-syncing.
