I have the ipad just prior to release of the IPAD4.  I purchased it to give presentations to clients of images of flower creations that have been designed by my florist studio.


I tranferred using the sync.  And now can't delete the photos, nobody what workarounds I do.


i have visited an Apple store (which knew about the problem but gave me a workaround that does not work) sent Apple Support an email, which is not doubt a waster of time as they will not respond to me.


am extremely disappointed as I love my iphone and the ipad is just a big con

    We are a long way from any iPad 4, since the iPad 2 recently came out.


    As for photos on your iPad, ones that were synced from your mac/pc, you need to delete the photos on your computer then sync.  You can't delete directly from your iPad.


    Of course, this was explained to you in another post.

    You have 5 posts on deleting photos.


    Are you even reading the replies?

    i cannot delete all the images from my PC as I would need an additional drive to move them to.


    somebody else has said that i can restore the original settings on the sync.  is this correct?

    I believe what everyone has been trying to get across is that you could delete the photos on your iPad VIA your PC. You don't need to delete them from your PC too.


    I don't quite get what you mean by "restoring original settings on the sync" but if you mean restoring your iPad, that deletes a lot more than just your photos and probably wouldn't be worth it.

    i cannot read the replies - they are not appearing.

    i am new to this and need assistance

    my pc is not recognising the ipad in windows explorer so i can't do it this way.


    i think i am just going to give up on the whole exercise.

    I'm not familiar with Windows, but if you're using iTunes to sync a folder of pictures to your iPad, you can just untick the photo sync box in iTunes. Sorry if I can't be of any further help.

    To get the sync'ed photos off your ipad, deselect Sync Photos on the itunes Photos tab on your computer.

    The photos will be taken off your iPad, but will stay on your computer.

    thank you for taking the time to respond - i simply don't get an option to deselect Sync Photos - it does not appear anywhere on itunes.

    i think the problem is with windows software.

    i am really giving up on this problem as i don't think it can be fixed.

    i will ring Apple support today, but i doubt that they have any more answers than this help forum.

    thank you again for your help

    I would suggest that you take a few classes at the local Apple store on how to use the iPad.

    Connect your iPad to you computer. Start iTunes.  In iTunes click on the name of your iPad in the left hand column under "DEVICES". Click on "Photos" located near the top of the screen.  Click on the checked box located to the left of "Sync Photos from". Note that to the right of "Sync Photos from" is the name of the folder where your photos are stored. If you want to sync some photos, you can leave the box checked and move photos in and out of this folder.


    Then click on "Apply", then "Sync".
