For a company that made it's chops with graphic designers this has the usability of Windows circa 1989. This article does not help at all! Delete each photo manually? Are you Effing kidding me? GET IT TOGETHER

 

I'd like to know why I've spent two hours and the best advice is to buy a third party app. I'm not a noob and I'm sick of Apple being called the best but when you want to do something as simple as file managment it's TERRIBLE.

You don't need to delete photos one at a time. As long as they aren't photos that were synced from a computer (they can't be deleted directly on the iPad), then in thumbnail view in the Photos app you can tap the Edit button top right of the screen, then double-tap a photo with two fingers and without lifting your fingers off the screen slide both fingers back-and-forth across the screen over the photos that you want to select for deletion.
