You can use Image Capture... However, if you see a cloud next to the name of your device then you need to disable iCloud Photo Library before the delete all button will appear. iPhone: Settings -> Photos & Camera -> iCloud Photo Library off Settings -> Photos & Camera -> My Photo Stream off Then, try Image Capture again and the delete all button ...

Why is this happening: because deleting the picture from DCIM has no effect on the database listing the pictures neither to the thumbnails generated during the capture of the picture. Once the DCIM empty the DB points to void placeholders. How to do otherwise: try rebooting the iPhone. Next time delete them form the device or use some 3rd party softs.

The app has been Photos since the original iPhone OS release, although there has been an album named "Camera Roll" as long as I can remember (iPhone OS 2.0 was my first). See http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0163/8048/files/iOS-Evolutionjpg.jpg?1903 Update: The app can be called Photos or Photos.app or Photos on iOS. Apple seems to just call it Photos, ...

Deleting photos from the Camera Roll has no effect on photos already in your PhotoStream and vice-versa. Photo Stream is temporary so if you don't access your PhotoStream on your computer where the photos can be saved locally on your computer (there is an option to do this automatically with iPhoto on a Mac), you should import the phtoos from the Camera ...

Albums on Photos are not like folders or "real world" albums, where you would put a copy of your picture and empty the "box" where they came all together. They work like tags, where you would mark a picture with the themes it pertains to and when looking the album you're just organizing by tags ("family trip to Chile", but also "In laws", "Summer"); if you ...

Your question is probably about 5 ones about how things work, so I'll address the elephant in the room. You need to decide how you want your photos to be stored. Where do you archive them for long term storage? How many can you afford to lose? When and how will you clean up all the photos that come from dozens of places so that your long term albums don't ...

The Photos link on iCloud.com lets you look at the contents of your iCloud Photo Library which is an optional part of the new Photos app. If there are no photos in it, the most likely explanation is that you don't have iCloud Photo Library enabled on any of your devices. It does not give you access to photos stored in iCloud as part of an iOS device backup, ...

I'm not sure that I fully understand your question, but if you disable, then re-enable your photos under iCloud - Storage - Manage Storage - [Your iPhone], your iPhone will re-upload the photos to iCloud. When you disable Camera Roll, the photos are deleted from iCloud but not your iPhone.
