How to delete photos from the new photos page?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

On the updated Photos page, I can't seem to figure out how to delete photos. I often scroll through there to look through all the new photos uploaded automatically from my phone. A lot of them aren't any good, and I'd like to delete them as I scroll through. I used to just delete them from there, but can't seem to figure that out now.

You can no longer delete from the Photos page. You need to select a photo and choose View in folder. From there you can delete it.

I am trying to delete photos and they're saying I have to scroll through every photo I've ever taken after I've clicked on them and gone to the folder....so it displays on my screen and I THEN can delete? What is going on with this?!?

Clearly they are developing a complete paid photo solution otherwise why in the world would they remove features and torture the existing customer base like this ? As soon as they offer this new paid photo service they will get thousands of signups - and the ability to DELETE A SINGLE PHOTO WHILE LOOKING AT IT  will be one of the prime inducements to sign up -- #tryingtomakesenseoifitall

How inelegant and clumsy. You need to hire a U/I person.

As they've been slowly removing most photo-centric features over the last couple years, they likely don't care.

Ok Dropbox you fixed it, sorta.  What they did was to allow you to click on the photo(s) in the photo view and then click "show in folder"; it then brings up a new window/tab with the photo(s) already clicked.  Before you had to search for that photo(s) and delete.  Now you just have to ass.u.me that they are all clicked if multiple photos were selected, or again... search and find. 

 

Dropbox, why not just put a "DELETE"! on the multiple and photos page??  What are you saiving by taking this feature away from the web solution that you had before?   Is it you need your software on every computer maybe?

No I do NOT accept this as "best answer".  Best answer and customer service is to provide a delete button on each photo and multiple photo pages.
