    Hi! I need to access multiple photos on my device to be able to delete/send/edit or do other actions on them at one time. I know that I can access photo library using UIImagePickerController, but functionality of this component is very limited and it cannot solve even half of my problems. The straight way to solve my problem would be to directly access folders containing images in the file system, and then create my own controller and populate it with data from appropriate folders.
    So the main question here is: Is it possible to directly access photos from file system, or the only way to do this is through UIImagePickerController? And if the later one is true, what can be done to implement multiple photo managing (just like Mail app allows to select multiple emails and then delete them)?

    Ok, so I take lack of response for nobody being able to answer about selecting multiple photos. I think that maybe I used wrong words, because selecting them is not a problem, if you have them displayed/stored in any kind of container except UIImagePickerController...
    So now the task would be to gain access to the photos. I know where they are, I know that they are stored in .ithmb files, I even found the way to decode them (http://forums.ipodlounge.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=110066), so now it's up to me to create my own controller to manage the photos the way I want. But before I try can anybody tell me if I'm going in the right direction? Is there really no other way than to hack it?
