I imported all my photos from my iPhone4 to my Mac using Image Capture. It wasn't clear to me that "deleting after import" would delete them from my phone. Now, I have a file on my Mac with all the iPhone photos, but also have them on my phone. When I use various apps (Image Capture, iPhoto, Preview), no photos appear to delete from my phone because they've been imported. How can I delete all these photos from my Camera Roll now?




The reason I'm doing this is because I seem to have a lot of space taken up by "Other." I've cleaned my cache and texts. Cleaning up Photos/vids was the next step. I'm hoping this makes a difference, but not certain it will.


Thanks for your input.

iPhone 4S, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
