I was growing to love my ipad.. I have been singing the praises to my friends... But this is absolutely 100% unacceptable to me...

First, I can't copy SELECTED photos to the ipad. I have to sync an entire folder, album, library, or person to ipad... So I thought, ok, no worries I'll just delete the pictures I don't want after I copy them.

SORRY! APPLE SAYS I CANT!

The delete button is not there! You CAN NOT delete photos you copied from itunes to your ipad. You can only delete the photos you saved to the ipad from web sites, but you can not delete photos without using itunes.

This is just absolute and total kaka. Apple needs to fix this ASAP..

And for all the fanboys out there who are going to bash me for this thread, I'm just going to laugh at you.

Why don't you just create a new pictures folder called "My stupid pictures that I want on my stupid iPad" ... or I guess you could just calll it "iPad". Then sync that with it.

Also....change the name of this thread.

Even if you could delete them it would add them again next time the iPad was synced.

Really don't see the big deal here. As has been said, just make a folder with those pics you want. It's not hard. Infact, it probably would have taken less time and energy than making this thread whingeing about something that Apple won't fix as it's been a part of iPhone OS all along.

Probably because most people would only watch a movie on their iPhone/iPad once, and then delete it to free up some space (they are often very big files remember), without having to sync. Whereas pictures that you specifically wanted to sync to your phone/pad aren't usually deleted after being looked at once. Just a guess tho.

Thats a reasonable point, however seems daft they don't just add this option to all media anyhow since they have programmed it for movies already.

By the way, the iPhone has the same stupid limitation but kind of like multitasking, it was never a problem on the iPhone as most probably didn't use the iPhone to show off pictures to family and friends. Apple even advertises the iPad as a picture album so they should give you more flexibility than the iPhone.

It's silly that common sense never prevails... when you put music on your iPad, do you sync the entire library or just playlists (for the most part, don't get stupid...)?

I have never put my entire library on my iDevices... I have cd's that I like maybe half the songs, and thats the beauty of iTunes. So stop crying about little things and find the fix yourself....

now continue with the OHSOCREATIVETITLES.... they make me happy

edit: as HXGuy stated, things on the iPhone that annoy you may possibly annoy you on the iPad. Why you say, uh, because they have the same damn OS (a few minor tweaks, it is really the 3.1.3, renamed 3.2 for the iPad launch)

Nobody said it was the best way. I'm sure everyone agrees it's bit of a pain. But the OP worded his post and title so badly that it was hardly going to prompt a positive response from people. All we can do is suggest the best way to get around the problem.

Ok..so say I sync an album then leave the house to show the photos to my parents, I get there and realize I don't want them to see one of the pictures and by mistake didn't remove it when I synced. What do you propose...turn around and go back home to sync? Let me guess..should have done it right in the first place? Come on, it's ridiculous.

You are syncing photos to your iPad that you don't want your parents to see yet you are intending to go see them anyways?

This isn't a big issue for me. I just have a special folder called Photos for iPad and copy the subfolders into that folder that I want to appear on my iPad. I then go in and delete the photos in the copy that I don't want to appear on my iPad before I sync. No big deal to me. It's amazing the things that get folks into an uproar. But then again I guess there are a couple of things I don't like that doesn't bother others (like being able to have a completely blank homescreen).

lol laugh at you talking about common sense when trying to defend the fact that apple hasnt even included the ability to delete photos. Common sense would be giving the user this ability just for the sake of it. I mean ffs they have included the ability to use it as a digital photo frame, surly they should have given the user more control over photos.

I haven't used an ipad yet so i also need to ask this question, can you move a photo that is in one album, into another album?

icanhazipad?
Apr 24, 2010, 05:53 AM
I wish there was an emoticon of me beating the hell out of you with an iPad... if you don't want a picture there, then don't put it into your sync folder. Yes, it would be convenient to delete individual pictures, but Apple is assuming (how stupid of them) that anyone purchasing an Apple device is not a mentally retarded dumbass who does not understand something as simple as "you don't want it there, don't put it there."

it's like I said, if you don't want a song on your iDevice, don't put it in the sync playlist... is it THAT hard to comprehend.

again, sorry for the short temper, I've been awake for 18 hours and I am agitated...

edit: you know apple, not putting rudimentary tasks like moving and deleting photos. How many digital picture frames give you the ability to delete and move photos around? the pos my mother-in-law gave me doesn't even SYNC half the time, let alone let me move things around or delete them.... I am quite happy with the functionality of the iPad... again, sorry for the short-temperedness.

HXGuy
Apr 24, 2010, 05:54 AM
No, you cannot move a photo. You can't create a new album either. It all has to be done on your desktop first which is stupid as hell. Apple insists that we stay tethered to iTunes almost at all times.

What I really don't get is that they allow you to delete saved pictures but not synced ones...so it's not like it was an oversight or something, they just didn't want to include it.

I don't know you you use you computer but I don't usually make specific sync folders...iPhoto groups photos together automatically when you upload that batch and I usually just sync by the folder, I don't go in and review everything and then select what I want and don't want and then sync. I'd like to sync a whole folder, and then maybe sit comfortably on the couch and sort them out or maybe in the car on the way somewhere. Is that too much to ask for?

Steve Jobs must take great pleasure in reading forums like this where people call each other names rather than admit something might be wrong with an iThing. Apple screwed the pooch in several areas with the design of the iPad. It's still a great device but we are talking about human beings here not God.

A mere 256 Meg of ram on the iPad seems like a mistake to me. The inability to manage files without docking with the iTunes mothership is an even bigger mistake. Are there workarounds? Yes. Should we need them? No. Will apple fix this? Maybe not when they have fanboys willing to fall on their swords over every stupid mistake apple makes.

Any way to edit the title? I don't see how the term nazi adds anything to our discussion.

I agree on this, I don't think it's a problem however I have seen posts where people have received out of memory popups and had to quit the app. People also blame the low RAM for Safari refreshing the tabs however I think it's Safari itself to blame as Atomic Browser works just fine with tabs and they dont refresh.

it's as I've stated many many time before, most people don't sync their entire libraries to their iDevices. I don't, I can't. I have over 350gb's of music on my HDD. It ranges from classical to Motown to todays hits (the wife doesn't understand good music, she still listens to that little Bieber kid...). Yes, it would be convenient to change, but since it's probably not going to anytime soon, do the right way. People are nitpicking trying to find out whats wrong with the device. As MacRumor said, anyone who has used an iPad can tell you that those 256mb of ram are more than enough. Apple designed this to work, just like they have with all their products. Macs are substantially better than pc's because Apple made the mobo. I trust apple to pump out quality and user friendly wonders, as I have since 2001.

can you delete movies on the ipad? and create folders in the movies app? so say i wanted to put on an entire series of southpark on the ipad, could I create a folder called southpark to put them all in one folder?.

you can sync a folder of movies, but it won't show up as a folder, just all the episodes.

ok thanks, bit disappointed :(. it would have been nice to be able to create a folder for each type of video that is on my ipad (comedy, romance etc) or create a folder for a specific series so it isn't all scattered.

but oh well, I'm sure this will/can be corrected one day.

I have a feeling that some of those out of memory errors were app 'bugs' rather than actual iPad memory errors.

Yep Atomic Browser works fine for me with tabs and cache, therefore I suspect that it's a safari anomaly on the iPad that will be repaired with an update.

I've done some rally heavy work on the ipad with brushes, sketchbook pro and had no problems doing so whilst listening to music and emails being pushed into mail in the background.

I can only hope so, because the iTards (people who buy :apple: products but then complain endlessly about user error) will bitch and moan even more... and we'll have to wait until os 5 for relief... and who KNOWS when that will be...

note: I don't consider myself a fanboy, a hopeless romantic for the Jobs, etc. - It boils down to this: I know what works for me. I have never had an issue with any apple product and whenever someone asks about my hardware, I sing it's praises. When my buddies come to me and say, hey, my computer crashed again, I smile a bit. I know that I am avoiding all these problems by using a mac. In fact, 15 of the guys in my dorm bought macs with their stipends this semester. I liken it to your vehicle. If you bought a new Honda Accord, and you LOVED it, but it had a small error with the gas cap, wouldn't you fight for it? It runs well, it looks damn good and most of all, it makes you happy. Thats all were, at least I'm, doing.

On the camera screen it may look good but on the larger ipad screen look like crap.

You CAN delete photos from the iPad, I have done this, tap to enlarge photo then tap upper right corner trash can, delete photo comes up, then tap delete photo, poof it goes away.

If the pictures are in an album that you synced with iTunes, there is no trash can icon to delete them. If you saved the pictures using the iPad, you can delete them.

Even so, the OP is ridiculously overreacting about a tiny issue.

Yup. Perhaps it is a trade off. In other words, you know how the images are 'optimized' before being transferred. Are they managed in a db, as one, and that management is for the purpose of speed and visual appeal?

Have we not learned anything with the power to tweak an OS. That when that power is given bugs, patches, slowness etc, is introduced to the OS. I'm not saying this is even true with the regards to delete an image, however, the iPad is a consumption device, mainly, and it is good at that. If the ability to add various features come in, I just want to make sure it doesn't impede my ability to be a blazingly fast consumption device.

Thank you, I haven't tried deleting from a sync. I was deleting from web photos. :rolleyes:

This relates to the iphone, where you can take your pictures from itunes and download them to the phone, but can not erase any of them, conversely if you save some pictures from an email for example or take a pic with your camara, then you have the option there to eliminate or do whatever you want

People that blindly defend the iPad are amazing.

Seriously...you find it ok to not be able to delete photos? You really think the best way is to resync or to just do it rightnthe first time?

Right now the best way is to create a folder and put the pics you want in there. Maybe later there will be an update that will add the delete function.

People that have to blindly bitch and whine are amazing.

I was growing to love my ipad.. I have been singing the praises to my friends... But this is absolutely 100% unacceptable to me...

First, I can't copy SELECTED photos to the ipad. I have to sync an entire folder, album, library, or person to ipad... So I thought, ok, no worries I'll just delete the pictures I don't want after I copy them.

SORRY! APPLE SAYS I CANT!

The delete button is not there! You CAN NOT delete photos you copied from itunes to your ipad. You can only delete the photos you saved to the ipad from web sites, but you can not delete photos without using itunes.

This is just absolute and total kaka. Apple needs to fix this ASAP..

And for all the fanboys out there who are going to bash me for this thread, I'm just going to laugh at you.

HAHAHAHA!!!! we don't care!! Long live Apple fanboys, we will soon rule the world under the leadership of our Master Steve.

This is correct.

I have seen a tremendous amount of people get confused over the way an iPod (and now an iPad) is supposed to work. They tend to think of the device as a place for "storage" of their data (pictures, music etc) instead of a "copy" of their data. Evidence of this is the fact that we see countless threads of people saying that they "moved stuff" to the iPod, then deleted it from their computer, and now need to get it back. This behavior indicates a complete misunderstanding of the architecture of these devices.

Anything you "sync" from your computer only makes a copy on the device. The original still lives on the computer. So for example... if you create an album on your computer, and sync it... it is the "album" that is synced... not the "individual pictures". Similarly... playlists and music collections work the same way. The quicker that people get their head around this... the quicker they get unconfused about the purpose of the device. Clearly the OP is quite confused.

It works differently (obviously) for anything that is authored on your device. So for example, with an iPhone, if you take a picture, or save a picture from an email... it goes into a folder that you can in fact edit. In this case, the "objects" are the individual pictures... not the "photo album".

To say another way... the OP is confused on the basic structure of his data. If you get a book from the library, don't be upset because you wanted everything except for page 37. You did not obtain a bunch of pages... you obtained "a book". If you want a selection of pages... then copy just those pages and then you can remove or edit them to your heart's content.

In the iPad, if you save a picture (ex: from an email)... it goes into a collection called "Saved Pictures". Those pictures can be individually removed.

DJ, you suck. You use Nazi like it's a joke. I hope your iPad destroys all your pictures and you have no back-ups. You're a sad sad wanker. Go visit a WWII museum and get a freakin' clue you ignorant spoiled yuppie monster.

lol, is this forum filled with grumpy old people or what.

"remember the war" blablabla.

Sorry, I dont mean to defend anyone, but WTF. This is teh internets, people use nazi cards all the time. I dont see the problem, I just see some over-sensitive, pretentious crap.

For what its worth, I agree with OPs complains. Whether he then goes on calling Apple nazis or not for it, I couldnt care less. I think Apple can defend themselves.

Try taking your iPad back to 1944, handing it to someone in the Allied Forces, and saying that you just CAN'T STAND that this touch-screen computer won't manually manage photos. See what sympathy you get ;)

It is ironic that same people who are defending veracity of word Nazi would have used the same against MS in IE takeover days, laughed it up watching soup nazi on Seinfeld or even call POTUS a nazi if they watch Fox News.
Though I agree Apple has lately pushed their way or no way alot more, it would be nice if name calling stopped and sites like these would start petitions for change rather than defend archaic practices. If there were 1000 users signing online petition for this change and delivering to sjobs@apple.com, I'm sure Steve would at least read if not respond.
I have not used photos on iPad so mentioned issue has not bugged me but thing that does bug me is that I can download a podcast directly to iPad but cannot delete it. There can't be an explanation for that but i'm sure someone here would try to justify it.
Anyways, I would be just happy with wi-fi syncing if nothing else.

Could you ever delete music (or anything else) on any iPods from the device itself ever, in the history of iPods? No, you couldnt. So what made you think that you could do it now?? Apple wants you to sync to delete/add stuff because its easier & less cumbersome. No one wants to manually select individual media files to add or delete.

Someone didnt use their noggin'.
