    Last night I thought I would be clever and cut all the pics from the Camera roll by mistake as I meant to press copy. I then couldn’t paste them back in so I had to make a album called random, paste them in it and do it that way but now as they are synced I have lost the ability to delete them. Is there any way to put them back in the camera roll.

    I have only got about 20 photos so its nothing major its just a pain not being able to delete photos from the phone itself.

    I have seen stuff on the net saying to put photos in a certain album in the DCIM folder. I have seen stuff saying to email them yourself and download them that way and it will save in camera roll and another suggestion was to use the photobucket app, host them all and then download them and then will go into the roll.

    If I use any of the options above will they basically become “camera” photos again ie I can delete, rename bla bla as I would have been able to before?

    I just thought of this. Maybe you could try putting the photos in a shared folder on your computer and visit the address of the folder in Mobile Safari. Haven't shared a folder in ages so I can't remember the procedure.

    EDIT: If you have a Mac and the Pastebot iPhone app I think you can paste the photos from your Mac to the app and then save them to the roll from there.
