There were many duplicate photos on my iPad 2, so I synced to the iMac , and transferred the photo collection again. Now I have duplicates  (or triplicates) of all my pictures.


Is there a way to delete all photos from iPad, and  sync a fresh, clean single copy of the iMac collection?

iPad 2, iOS 5.0.1

    If you are using iCloud, on your iPad tap Settings > iCloud. Tap Photos then switch My Photo Stream off then back on.


    On your Mac open System Preferences > iCloud. Deselect the box next to Photo Stream then reselect it.


    Give iCloud a few minutes to re sync your photos.

    Thanks, Carolyn, but that technique, regrettably, didn't work. I still have  multiple duplicates on the iPad.


    On the iTunes page I don't see any way of deleting photos from the iPad; surely there must be a way?


    Will keep looking.


    Thanks anyway,
