how to delete photos from iPad 2?

I did a search and found the threads at the bottom, but they don't seem to address my situation:

I sync my iPad 2 w/an MBP running OS 10.5.8 and iTunes 10.2. I imported some photos from iPhoto, and tried to follow others' advice about how to remove them (iTunes -> Photos tab -> clicked on Selected albums and events...), but all of my events are greyed out -- I can't select or deselect them to try to remove them from my iPad, as advised in the threads below.

Any ideas on how I can remove individual photos and/or whole albums from my iPad 2?

Did you select the option under the Photos tab that lets you individually manage them? All options are normally greyed out until you choose that option.

(I think) I did, which is what's so confusing to me.

Is there a listing for Photos on the left hand side under the Library options (I'm on a PC, so hopefully iTunes isn't too different)? If you really want to delete the Photos from iTunes, and not just unsync them from the iPad, you would probably delete them from there. I don't have Photos in the Library, but I have none loaded into iTunes. The Library is where I have to go to delete Apps, Music, etc.

acc. to Apple's user guide...

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPad_User_Guide.pdf

On p. 51, at the bottom, it says:

"Delete a photo: You can delete photos from the Saved Photos album, which contains photos you save from email or the web. For photos synced from your computer, you need to delete the photo from the album on your computer, then sync iPad again."

Is that really the only option? I may not have some of the original image files elsewhere for me to reload them later, if I delete them from iTunes. (I hope that I'm overlooking something.)
