    Hi all, I have searched the forums for an answer and didn't find one or I missed it.

    I have a 6s currently runnng 10.3.2 and no issues except this one. I can remove an image by "hold
    down" and deleting it but I simply cannot get a photo, either sent or received, to give me an option to trash the dang thing. I can get to the pop up screen with the "airdrop" on top and the "more" options. When I touch the "more" options it brings me to another screen but the option for "trash" isn't one of them.

    How can I get rid of these photos without deleted the conversations? Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Edit: I cannot change the title of thread to read photos instead of images ...

    Thank you so much ... I had to turn off 3D touch to get it to work.

    I imagine you were pressing too hard. Generally just resting your finger on it lightly is enough.

    You can adjust sensitivity in settings though.

    I had the setting turned all the way left to "light" touch. I'll have to play around with it because sometimes it works and then it doesn't. Anyhow thanks again everyone.
