    Have ~98gb of photos in my camera roll, around 36k photos taken since the 1st gen iPhone. Time to start weeding them out but I don't want to go through manually. Looking for a way to delete every third photo within a specified date range using a script or something else.

    Thanks in advance!

    And they are all in your camer roll?
    Seriously, sync you phone to a computer, PC or Mac and pull them off there.
    Then there are programs that can do what you want. But rather then blindly deleting them and maybe losing a precious memory, do it manually, it will take time but you won't accidentally delete something special.

    Everything is backed up so it's not a worry about losing something. I like to keep them on there to find easily and now, particularly, through the Photos/Collections section of the Photos app, like being able to find things by map location.

    Was wondering last night, if I take everything off, wipe the phone, then put a bunch of the pictures back on, would they still populate the Photos, create "Collections" and appear as if they were in the Camera Roll?
