My Little Photographer

Does anyone know how to mass delete photos taken with my iPhone? Apparently, Baby Bug got her hands on my phone and took 354 photos of random things around our home. I started deleting one by one but by the time I got rid of 20 pictures, I was done.

There has to be a way, right? I mean, this is the iPhone were talking about! It can tell you where you parked your car, it can accept a credit card payment, it can even find you an apartment to rent. It should be able to delete 354 photos at once.

    Kailani: It should be pretty simple. Attach your iPhone to your computer using the USB cord. You can then access the phone’s memory & mass delete what is in the directory. It is not necessary to access photos taken with the phone via iTunes.

    No idea, but I hope you get it figured out soon.

    I feel bad for you! Have you checked out this site??

    I also found this…

    I don’t have an Iphone but I’m sure there are message boards just for Iphone. good luck. :(

    I’m not sure how to do it but I’d go with JHS!!!

    That’s funny…I have a grandson who loves my phone as well.

    I wish I could help, but all things electronic are a mystery to me! Good Luck!

    That’s hilarious! Yikes. My 6-year-old took a bunch of pictures while I was driving yesterday. ;)

    I know you can just delete them as you view them (with the little trashcan at the bottom) but not sure there is another more permanent way. Good luck!

    Sounds like JHS has the right idea. That’s what I’d do w/ my reg phone. Heck, it’s what I’ve had to do w/ my camera! And tell Baby Bug thanks for making me giggle!

    that’s too funny. but what if she took a really good picture? have you looked at all of them yet? =)

    sorry i can’t help. i don’t have an iphone.

    That’s kinda funny… sounds like something my girls would do, if I let them near my computer, lol. I hope you get it figured out!

    use the trash icon on the bottom of your iPhone when you open the picture…it’s very easy…and if you don’t want to do it one by one attach the phone to your computer when it finds the photos either down load them and click the erase after downloading and then go to the file where they are saved and erase them by selecting all or go into the iphone as a drive and delete them there :) Aloha

    Oh my, I am laughing! Thanks for making me smile today.

    Maison’s Dad has an iPhone and she knows how to do just about everything on there! He put it on airplane mode once so she couldn’t get online, but she figured out how to turn it off! Good luck deleting those pics!

  13. Matt says:

    That’s funny…..often times at parties I try to grab someone’s digital camera and take random pictures of things to the surprise of the person who owns the camera.

  14. Jenni Jiggety says:

    Oh no!! I hope someone has good advice for you!

  15. Sarah says:

    I bought my three year old his own camera for just this reason, so he’d leave MY phone and camera alone. Hope you get it figured out!

  16. Mandee says:

    I have no clue! Hopefully the very first suggestion helped :) Kids sure like to take pictures.

  17. The Phil Guild Guide says:

    JHS is right. My phone (other brand) has a “mark all” and “delete all” function, and it’s not high-tech.

    Oh too funny! I’d say it’s time for Baby Bug to get her own camera… Are you going to share any of her masterpieces before you delete them? Sounds like JHS has some sound advice! :)
