    Hi all,

    My neighbour asked me to help her free up some space on her iPad 2. When connected to iTunes it shows 2.4 gig of photos so I thought it would just be a case of unticking "sync photos" but that doesn't work. :confused:

    Even with that unticked, after a sync it still shows 2.4GB in the bar at the bottom.

    When you unticked "sync photos" didn't you get a pop-up asking if you want to keep or delete the photos?

    Use iTunes to select which folders of photos you which to sync. If a folder is not selected they will be removed.

    Thank you!

    I am not sure that I like this new operating system but your assistance worked to remove 1450 pictures from my iPad 2. Thank you so much. I am trying to remove the picture on my iPad but the reverse happened.
