    Essex, I tried ALL of the suggestions on this forum and yours was the only one that worked! Not only that, but it took about 2 minutes. I can't thank you enough!! To heck with Apple, the next time I have an issue on one of my apple devices I'm going to hunt you down!!

    Ruby, if you haven't already done so, go to the Nov 3 post of Essex Boy. I had the exact same problem you had and it was solved within 2 minutes!!

    Okay the step by step plan for my iPhone 4 didn't work because everytime I tried it, it would give me a "Kaitlyn folder" and a "photo library folder" and would leave my "camera roll folder" empty and it put all 440 photos in the Kaitlyn and photo library folders so if you could please help me that would be freaking amazing just saying:)

    Thank you very much.  It was very simple and clear instructions.  It worked !!!!!!!

    Go to settings -> General->Usage->Photos&Camera


    It doesn't show you it, because Apple's developers are GUI dunces, but those bars permit you to do a slide-gesture-left and a delete button will appear..


    I accidentally stumbled upon this, there is nothing about the buttons that give you this clue.. I think apple is going downhill unless they can get someone like me to kick their *** about.

    Ok, I've been going through all these methods and none worked. I came here because I couldn't delete the photos by syncing with an empty folder and delete is grayed out in Preview and Image Capture on the MAC.


    I did notice since that in the lower left corner of Image Capture there is a red circle with a line through it.


    So I marked my 4,000 photos and clicked on that symbol and was able to delete them all! Even though delete is grayed out in the menu bar! Probably works with Preview also.

    To delete images from your iPhone permanently, for Mac users...

    Note: Make sure you have imported/backed-up/saved your photos before you do this (because it will delete them forever)


    1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac

    2. Open the "PREVIEW" software that came with your Mac

    3. From the "FILE" menu, choose "IMPORT FROM [the name of your iPhone]"

    4. Select which photos you want to delete and hit the delete button (on the bottom left of the window, there will be a red delete icon)

    5. Disconnect your Phone from the Computer

    6. Shutdown the "PHOTOS" app on your iPhone (To do this: double-click the home button on your iPhone, hold down your finger over any one of the icons that appear at the bottom of your screen until the icons start to shake, then hit the RED MINUS ICON in the top left of the icon) [Note: this will NOT delte the app from your iPhone. It is only shutting it down (from running in the background) so it can refresh / restart.]

    7. Then hit the home button on your iPhone again to return to your home screen

    8. Open up your photos app and you will see that the photos you deleted are now gone!

    Apple, are you joking? Is it so difficult to add a delete option in each image? It's like producing a Mercedes without wipers. It's just completely stupid.
