El captain cannot remove photos from the iPhone after importation

I opened the Photos App and imported my photos. It helps to have an option to remove photos from my phone once they have been imported. What happened to this option? Is there a way to remove photos from my iPhone after importation?

  • Remove photos from the iphone after import

    Hi, I'm new on this but I can't find an answer by reading the previous posts.

    I always was able to import my photos and click the button "erase after importing" and my photos would be removed from my phone, but recently it tells me there is an error during this operation and the pictures are still on my phone using a lot of memory. Anyone know why this feature no longer works? I'm really not what although it is complicated with my pc, everything is usually automatically when I plug in my phone. Can someone give advice?

    Thank you

    You have iCloud library enabled on the iPhone? (in settings > iCloud > Photos & camera)?

    So you can't delete photos from the iPhone, because they are actually stored in iCloud and only in reverse on the iPhone.

    Disable the iCloud photo library, if you want to download the pictures manually by USB.  But be sure, that optimize storage is disabled and all the pictures were downloaded again icloud before disabling iCloud photo library.

  • How to remove photos from the iPhone after import in Lightroom on Mac

    I went back to Lightroom after opening was abandoned by Apple and I'm happy to be back. I can easily import photos from my iPhone 6 on my desk, but what to do with the pictures on my phone. With opening could easily automatically delete photos from the iPhone. I don't see anything similar in Lightroom. Do I have to remove my photos manually by selecting one at a time? I don't want to delete the folders that I created.

    I'm not stored on the cloud or automatically sending my photos in Lightroom.

    Thank you

    This function no longer exists in LR as Adobe says that it was originally people loose photos, accidentally I think, so it must be done manually. To be honest I never used no deletion automatic, I want to import and check all is well before any withdrawals!

  • How to remove photos from the iPhone SE

    July 2016

    Computer: iMac running OSX 10.11.5 El Capitan

    Phone: iPhone SE

    Buy the new iphone SE.  All properly transferred from old phone, via iCloud, but the new phone memory is almost full, and I need to remove about 300 photos.

    I plugged the phone on my Mac with the USB cable.  The phone does NOT appear as a disk in the Finder, as said the seller of phone.

    I was able to import all the photos to the Mac with picture Capture and preview, so the pictures are safe, but neither app shows a way to remove photos from the phone.

    'Image Capture help' and several items of third say there are buttons on the bottom of the screen to Capture of Image for "show thumbnails in a list (list view button) or to see large thumbnails (thumbnail view button), or to turn (rotation) or delete (delete key) images."


    The other buttons appear, but not the button 'delete '.

    I used an extract for years, and it does not remove images.

    So how to delete photos from my iPhone SE?  Do I have to look at all the pictures of 300 and delete each individually?

    You can delete several photos at the same time on the iPhone.

  • How to remove Photos from the iPhone/iPad/iCloud and no pictures

    How to take a photo with my iPhone/iPad, allow it to synchronize with Photos on my Mac via iCoud, then delete from my iPhone/iPad/iCloud and removes any Photos on Mac? I want to save the photo on your computer and save space on small devices?

    I keep seeing articles on the iCloud market turn but it seems the photos all return on the devices once restarted. I want to iCloud on use as a conduit to get the photos to my computer, not as a large storage space. I want the Photos app on my Mac where all the photos are filled and stored and choose those which is left each device.

    Right now they are all in the pictures on the Mac, but I'm worried if I remove it from my iPhone/iPad that they will disappear from Photos on the Mac. I don't understand the new Photos app with all the missing features of iPhoto.

    Thank you!

    You can not that's not how works iCloud photo library - it is not a conduit but a total synchronization service whose entire raison d'etre is to keep libraries connected identical - all changes made on any device (addition, deletion or modification) are made on all devices. For devices with limited memory, using optimized photos

    If this isn't what you want then use another service - USB import, iTunes sync, MyPhotoStream for example each do different things and everyone can move photos from one device to another

    And Photos lack a lot of features iPhoto form - in fact much more features than iPhoto including iCloud library there like a bigger and better editing capability and better external editing capability and so on

  • How to remove photos from the iPhone but on mac?

    I am very new to my Macbook and just trying to learn the ins and outs.

    You have iCloud library enabled, as well on your iPhone and your Mac? Then you sync the library on your Mac and your iPhone in iCloud. all photos are stored in iCloud, make you adjustments will synchronize to iCloud, and then the changes will be synchronized to all devices, so your photo library will look exactly the same on all devices.

    Do not delete any photo you want on any of your devices, if you use iCloud photo library.  To win the storage on your iPhone select "optimize storage. Then the photos on your iPhone will be reduced in the size of the file, but you need an internet connection if you want to see the full versions.

    If you want less photos on your iPhone to your Mac, do not use iCloud photo library.  Select only 'My Photo Stream' transfer photos from your iPhone to your Mac or use a USB connection. My photo stream is more economic, in any case, because it's free. iCloud library uses the iCloud paid storage and only 5 GB are free. If your photos need more storage, you will need a paid subscription.

    If you want to turn off iCloud photo library, be sure to disable 'optimize storage"before do you. Wait for the full versions to download again to iCloud.

    I have an iPhone 6 and I'm constantly short of room because of my photos.  When I go to delete a picture from my pictures it says "this photo will be deleted from iCloud photo library on all your devices" and I have NO IDEA how to disable this dang thing.  So when I delete a photo that it clears too my computer then I constantly tries to free up space on my phone in other respects.

  • When can I remove photos from the iPhone by making sure they are saved in the cloud?

    When I can I free up space on my iPhone 6, deletion of photos/videos, ensure that they are saved in the cloud?
    When I buy more space on the cloud, it is to iCloud, iCloud Drive, iCloud photo library?
    Too confusing...

    iCloud is a synchronization service, not off of storage of the unit. That means that it is not designed to "free space" on your phone by moving your photos and videos to iCloud. All photos will remain synchronized between your phone and iCloud.

    You can select the feature to OPTIMIZE, significantly reduce the space that take your photos on your phone.

    When you upgrade your iCloud space, it's for all features in iCloud, as backup space, iCloud disk space and so on.

    If you really want the maximum space on your phone, you can import your pictures and videos on a PC and then delete them from your phone. It does use icloud photo library.

  • remove photos from the elph135 after download

    Can we automatically have the pictures on the removal of the camera after that that they are uploaded to the computer

    Depending on the software you use, the answer is probably yes you can. But my question is why would you want that done right away? I would make sure that each photo is good and even saved before you delete them off the memory card. Things can occur during the transfer could corrupt a file, and then you would not be able to recover it, unless you have the recovery disk software.

  • How to remove photos from my iPhone 6 s, without deleting icloud photo library on all my devices with ios 9.2.1?

    I just updated my iPhone 6s ios 9.2.1 and whenever I try to remove photos from the iPhone library, it is said that they will remove the iCloud photo library on all devices. I don't want to do, I want to save the photos on my computer, but free up space on my phone. Help!

    If you have iCloud library enabled in the iPhone then any photo that you delete from your phone is also removed to iCloud and all devices connected to this library to iCloud. It is not a setting or an option where you can change this while continuing to use iCloud photo library. You can reduce the space required on the phone by activating the settings > iCloud > Photos > optimize iPhone storage. You can suggest that Apple offers more options via: http://www.apple.com/feedback/icloud.html

    Hello KConstant,

    I understand that you're looking to remove photos from your iPhone, after you import the to your Mac. It depends largely on how the images are imported into your Mac.

    If you use iCloud photo library, remove photos from your iPhone, after they have synched to the Photos on your Mac afterwards would remove these photos on your Mac as well, like iCloud photo library is designed to synchronize your iPhone with iCloud and Mac.

    However, if you are importing photos via the USB port of the Photos app, you should be prompted to delete pictures from your device once the import is complete:

    Once the import is complete, a message asks if you want to delete or keep the photos on your device. Click on remove items to remove photos or click on keep items to keep them on the device.

    Import photos and videos from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    You can also (it not allowed you iCloud photo library on your iPhone), you can use the image capture on your Mac app to delete images from your iPhone. This can also be useful to remove the last images that have already been imported into the Photos on your Mac. Once you have selected the images you want in the Image Capture, you can click on the prohibitive red symbol () to delete the selected items.
