How can I delete photos from the Photos tab?

Level 2

I have a zillion photos to delete, and everyone keeps saying to delete folder, but I don't want to delete pics in folder, I want to delete photos in the photos area

Hi @pammygirl, currently it isn’t possible to delete photos from the Photos tab.
Since these images show whats in your account already, if you delete the original image from where it’s located, then it will be removed from your account, and as a result from the Photos tab as well.
Let me know if you have any other questions! slightly smiling face
