    Searched, can't find. New iPad mini. From my photo album, I want to delete some photo's. I hit "edit" and choose the photo to delete. It now contains a check mark on the photo go be deleted. HOWEVER......... the red delete button at the top of the screen is grey'd out and I can't hit it. Tried a reboot. The only way I've found to delete a photo from the main "photos" screen is to delete them from my MBP, and then sync the mini with my laptop. I can delete individual pics from my photostream, I want to be able to delete them from the main library as well. Help please!!!

    If you synced them from a computer, they can't be deleted from the device. If they are saved on the device itself, those can be deleted as well as PhotoStream pics, but you knew that part.

    Well how about that! Thanks. Yes, I sync'd them from my iphoto when I first set up the mini. Now I know not to go bonkers trying to delete them!!!
