Need to remove pics on my iPhone that's on a Mac at my ex's.

Will I just be able to plug my phone into my parents computer and remove those pics that are down as albums? or would I need to back it up and restore my iphone to remove those pics?

I'm sorry, I'm not really sure what you're asking, are the pics on your phone or on your exs computer? You can delete directly off the phone (or restore, but seems a little unnecessary). If they're on your exs computer you'll probably need physical access to delete them.

If they are on your ex's computer, and she won't let you in you might have to pull some 007 stuff and access her wifi via your phone or laptop and RDP into the computer and delete them. Should be fun.

Just delete them from your phone.

they aren't from the camera it's photos that were downloaded and put on from the mac. So they are in albums.

Open your photo album on the phone. Press the little curved arrow to select multiple pics, do so, and press delete.

Connect your phone to your computer. Open Image Capture (if on a Mac). Your phone will be displayed under devices. Select the pictures you want to delete and press Delete on the lower menu bar.
can't delete through edit as doesn't allow you to do so.

i downloaded the pics onto the phone through the mac but parents have just a computer. wasn't sure if i just back up from computer and if that would remove them or if i just restore from computer then back-up from icloud.

Plug your phone into your home comp and sync your photos. It will delete photos that aren't on that comp.

only thing is apps won't come onto my device from my parents computer will they? i know that happened before on the mac. guessing if i havn't used my iphone on the computer that it would just be registered as a new phone? and stuff won't be added onto it?
