I made albums for my pictures and want to keep them in the albums and delete them from the camera roll. When I try to delete the pictures from the camera roll it says it will delete from everywhere. Then I no longer have them in the albums.
Download your photos to your computer and put them in albums in iPhoto (or whatever photo software you use). Then sync those albums back to the phone using iTunes.
I don't think there's a no-PC solution to this yet.
Apple has an answer here (HT3603):
If you delete pictures from the camera roll on iPhone you get only one option: Delete from everywhere.
To solve this headache connect your iPhone to your pc, then look for the iPhone icon click on it and it will show only pictures on the camera roll.
Highlight these pictures copy or move them to a folder you create on the hard drive then delete all the pictures you don't need from the pc and the pictures you have in albums on iPhone will not be touched, now sync the iPhone using iTunes and you won't see the deleted pics again.
