If you go to iTunes and select your device there is a tab called "Photos"

If you check and uncheck the boxes as shown: enter image description here

  • Check "Sync Photos"
  • Chose "Selected albums, Events..." radio button
  • Un-check "Last 12 Months" and "Last Import" and any you don't want
  • Then check any albums you do want

You should be set.


These 'albums' aren't real albums and can't be deleted. If you're desperate to remove them, stop syncing with iPhoto.

You can provide feedback to Apple regarding this at the following page:
