Importing to iPhoto and then deleting is a long process. My wife has over 1,200 photos in Camera Roll on her iPhone and has almost used all of her iCloud storage. Unless she buys more iCloud storage she will not be able to backup her iPhone.
She has all the pictures she wants to keep on her Mac from Photo Stream, and now wants to clean up Camera Roll and free up space in iCloud.

I have individually deleted 600 of the photos on my wife's iPhone (Photos-Edit) and backed up her iPhone. The amount of iCloud storage available did not change.
How do I increase the amount of iCloud storage without purchasing more storage?
Is my Photo Stream taking up storage in iCloud?
Are shared Photo Steams taking up storage in iCloud?
How do I delete a shared Photo Stream?

When I go to Settings, iCloud, Storage & Backup there is only Total Storage Available, Manage Storage. If I go back a a page to the page that gives me the option of turning On/Off Mail, Contacts, Calendar, etc. and turn Off Photo Stream, I get a warning, "Turning off Photo Steam will delete all Photo Stream photos from your iPhone." Will this also delete all the photos in Camera Roll? That is what I would like to accomplish, so she can have a clean/empty Camera Roll. All the Photo Steam pictures have been sent to her Mac and iPad so there should not be a need to keep these in iCloud.

Click the "Photos" icon on your iPhone's home screen. The Photos icon has a yellow flower on it.
Click your Camera Roll to view its contents.
Click the "Share" button in the top corner of your iPhone's screen. The Share button looks like a rectangle with an arrow pointing out of it.
Tap the thumbnail image for each of the photos you want to delete.
Tap the "Delete" button to delete all of the selected photos from your iPhone's Camera Roll.

Connect your phone to the computer you normally sync with. If either iPhoto or iTunes starts on your computer, quit those applications. On a Mac start Image Capture. This application is in your Applications > Utilities folder. When Image Capture is run you will see all the photos in your Camera Roll and be able to Select All and delete.

I have an iPhone 4 iOS 6.1.3. The way I delete multiple pictures in my camera roll is slightly different than winnijones (when I click "Camera Roll" doing it her way there is no "Share" button". This might vary by phone or iOS?).
From Camera, click the thumbnail image (mine is lower left corner).
In preview click "Camera Roll" (mine is upper left corner) to view its contents.
Click "Share" button (mine is bottom center and looks like a rectangle with an arrow going to the right out of it)
Select the images you want to delete and confirm.

Thanks... deleting with image capture worked perfectly (latest IOS and OSX) and allowed me to quickly delete 500+ photos without the brain-dead 'select each photo' method on the iphone.
Look for the little red circle with a slash through it on the bottom of the image capture window. Simply selecting all the photos and hitting delete or looking in the edit menu won't work.
