iPhone 5S, running iOS 8.0.2. For some reason, I've got 1GB of photos that show up on my iPhone and in iTunes, but I can't delete them. I used iPhoto to sync them off my phone. I also had iPhoto delete them.

When I go into photo albums, it's empty. So, how can I delete them?

    "Photos" and "Albums" are two separate tabs in the Photos app in iOS 8 (and also "Shared"). Have you checked in all of them? – Mike Scott Sep 28 '14 at 18:47

    @MikeScott Post a answer with that - there is a album called "Recently Deleted" - I went in there, deleted all of them, and it freed the space. – jrg Sep 28 '14 at 18:49

Look in "Albums" as well as "Photos" and you should find your photos.
