If I understand what i'm reading - I am supposed to be able to delete photos from my iPhone - and I cannot. Nothing I have tried has worked. Do I have to have iOS 6 to be able to delete photos? Are you saying that until a few months ago nobody could delete the pictures they've taken on their iPhone?
Has anyone else ran into this problem?
- I tried what shldr2thewheel suggested - I do not have photos listed in Usage - just minutes and network data
- I go into Image Capture and select photos - now HOW do I DELETE THEM ??????????? I can press the Delete key on my keyboard and nothing happens. I can drag them to the trash can and nothing happens. The Delete option in the menu at the top is grayed out and cannot be selected.
What I am asking is HOW do I delete these photos?
I read everywhere that I should be able to just select photos and delete them. If it was that easy WHY would I be on here asking this question ??????????????

Apparently it is not possible to delete photos on an iPhone using anything made by Apple.
Image Capture does not do it.
iPhoto does not do it.
iTunes does not do it.
Is there any other product that can do this?
If I connect this thing to a Windows PC can I delete photos on it using that?

Maybe this helps regarding Image Capture (see randers4 post)...

This was VERY STRANGE - but the solution in the post referenced by paulcb above finally worked.
I connect my iPhone3GS to my MacBookAir (iOS 4 / OSX 10.7). iTunes launches (I set it that way). I have 2000 photos and 50 videos taking up 10GB of my total 16GB on the iPhone - still in the Camera Roll. No room for music. Must remove some photos.
I close iTunes.
I open Image Capture. It shows all the photos i've imported - they each have green checks in the bottom right corners. I've been just clicking Import All - with "Detete after import" unchecked and it just adds my new photos to my MacBookAir but leaves them on the iPhone in the Camera Roll.
I checked "delete after import." It does not delete any photos i've already imported - but it does delete new pictures from the iPhone after importing them. That's actually probably a god thing.
The menu at the top of Image Capture - File - only Special Characters is selectable - all other options are grayed-out. I click one image to select it - now in the top menu - File - Select All becomes selectable. I click it and it selects all images.
The menu at the top - File - Delete is still grayed-out. I can click it but nothing happens. I can click the Delete key on my laptop and nothing happens, I can drag the photos to the trash can and nothing happens. It seems as if there is no way to delete the photos from the iPhone using Image Capture.
But - there is - click the red circle with the line thru it at the bottom of the page. That is the only thing on planet Earth that seems to be able to delete photos from an iPhone.
Thanks for the help.

I am so thrilled to report that, YES, in fact you can delete all photos with one easy swipe~!!!! I just discovered how by accident when I went to delete my audiobooks for more storage!! You go to SETTINGS > GENERAL > USAGE > PHOTOS & CAMERA > and then just decide what you’d like to remove~~ either (or all) “Camera Roll” “Photo Library” or “Photo Stream” & Swipe to Delete! Happy deleting everyone!!
