This is the continuation of the article “How to create new photo album on iPad”. In the previous article I wrote about this new feature of iOS 5 which allows you to create a new photo album in iPad and iPhone. But what if we want to delete photo album created on iPad or iPhone.
Yes, iOS 5 allows you to delete photo album created on iPad or iPhone. But please make a note that you cannot delete the photo albums that were synced through iTunes from your computer system. You can only delete photo albums that were created on the iPad or iPhone.
Also it is notable that when you give the delete command for a particular photo album, it doesn’t delete photos in the album. The delete command will only delete the folder and put the pictures contained in it back to the default folder.
Here is how to delete photo album created on iPad and iPhone:
Step 1: Click on “Photos” tab in the main menu. There you can see all your photo album folders.
Step 2: Click on “Edit” option on the top right of the screen.
Step 3: After that you will see a “cross sign” appear on the left top of the folders that were created on iPad or iPhone. Click on that “Cross Sign” for the folder you want to delete.
Step 4: A box will appear which will ask you to confirm that you want to “delete” the album or “cancel” it. Click on “Delete” to delete the album folder.
Step 5: The folder album will be deleted and the photos which were in the folder will get transferred to their default folder.
Step 6: Likewise you can delete all the folders of your choice and then click on “done” option on the top right of the screen to exit the editing.
Now you can easily delete created photo albums without deleting the photos. Give it a try, its pretty simple.
