How to delete photos from the Photo tab?

Level 2

When I log into droppox and select photos from the left margin, and the check the boxes of photos I want to get rid of,  I cannot figure out how to delete them. I have 7000+ photos and need to clear out!

 

When I look at my camera uploads I can delete but these arent the same pictures, I dont believe.

Hi @ashleymlefeldcurrently it isn’t possible to delete photos from the Photos tab.
 
Since these images reflect whats in your account already, if you delete the original image, 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! grinning face with smiling eyes

Photos uploaded using the Camera Uploads feature of the Dropbox app will be located in the Camera Uploads folder. You can delete the files from there.
