Question: Over 900 Photos on my Phone I can't Delete

I started with 4000 photos on my phone and have now deleted everything in the camera roll. I want to completely wipe all the photos on my phone and start from a clean slate, as I've backed all the photos up.


There are still, for some reason, over 900 photos that I CANNOT delete. I've tried the 'Image Capture' trick, but Image Capture says there are No photos - the same with the Photos App on my Mac.


How do I delete these photos? Lots of people have complained about not being able to remove photos from the Selfies folder because they are still in the Camera Roll, but I have photos in LOADS of folders that AREN'T in the Camera Roll!


Any help will be greatly appreciated because this is driving me insane!

Answer:
Answer:

Were they synced there using iTunes?


Photos synced via USB/wifi and iTunes can't be deleted from the phone, You connect to iTunes again and deselect those photos and resync. That removes them.
