I imported some photos taken with my iPhone to my computer, and put them in a few albums. Now I'm in iPhoto and I can't delete any of the photos off my iPhone.
Can anybody help or explain how this syncing works?
1. When you click "import photos" while syncing your iPhone it asks you if you want to keep the originals or delete them (meaning on the iPhone). Just click delete originals
2. Go into your iPhone and clear all photos.
1st way -- "importing photos" will ask to replace the duplicates, and I've modified those.
2nd -- How do I do that?
What if you restore your iPhone through itunes. That should get rid of the photos and then when it tries to sync itself with iPhoto it wont find anything there so you wont have them on your phone thereafter.
Yeah that's the obvious solution I thought of, but don't you think this is a major oversight/bug? You should not have to restore the iPhone to get rid of photos.
If you mean a group of photos, I can't help you there. You can go in to your photos though and delete them individually by tapping "Photos", tapping whatever "Photo Album" you want to delete from, and tapping the individual photo to enlarge it. Now look at the bottom right-hand corner. There should be a trashcan icon. Tap it and delete. Is that what you mean?
Anyway, good luck.
