I have already gone through the creating an empty folder and synced just that folder and when that didn't work I unselected the box to sync photos and that also did not resolve my issue. I'm at a loss on how to remove the data from my iPhone5. I currently have 250 photos/videos on my phone that are just over 2gb...I would really appreciate help clearing out such a large portion of my harddrive

  • Did you shoot these photos with your iPhone or have they been synced over via iTunes? – nohillside Feb 4 '15 at 8:50

Try going to iCloud settings on the phone and turn off the Photos Sync setting. Then delete the photos from the phone.
