How do I delete pictures and videos using the iOS app?

PLEASE NOTE: certain iOS features are temporarily disabled - but you can do all of these things when you sign in to the Picturelife website:

  • Deleting albums
  • Multi-selecting photos or albums
  • Deleting multiple photos at once
  • Adding multiple photos to an album at once
  • Sharing an album from the iOS app

All of these features are possible from your Picturelife library on the web and they will be back to the iOS app soon!

This article explains how to delete photos and videos via your library on the web.

First - login from a desktop or laptop web browser at Picturelife.com.

Delete photos & videos

NOTE: Currently, it's only possible to delete one photo or video at a time from the iOS app. Multi-select and multi-delete will return to the app soon

  1. Open the photo you want to delete in full screen
  2. Tap and hold your finger on the screen to open the quick actions menu
  3. Drag the photo to the Trash, and let go
  4. Tap "Confirm" when asked if you want to delete the photo from Picturelife

ALTERNATIVELY

  1. Open the photo you want to delete in full screen
  2. Drag the action bar up from the bottom of the screen
  3. Tap Delete - this will delete the photo from your Picturelife library
  4. Tap "Confirm" when asked if you want to delete the photo from Picturelife

    The work around for this is to choose a photo taken around the same time period as the ones you wish to delete. Hold & choose the select option. You can chose pics taken that year, month, day etc. Once you make your selection, photos are than populated into a makeshift album where you can select multiple images and delete.

    You still have to select each image by hand; I assume this would work better on desktop. Haven't tried yet.
