Got to open the picture file,
find the picture,
Click on the garbage can,
confirm delete
then click on View your pictures,
re-open the file at one of 20 + pages, and repeat the process for another deletion.
I'd like to be able to choose four or five at a time.

I don't know of any way to delete pictures any quicker than that.

I'm with you on this, Mike, and I suspect many others are as well.

Agreed. It would be nice if we could delete folders of pictures. I imagine it would save some space on the server as well... I don't delete anything because its kind of a pain to do it.

OK, so the guidance in this link did not work as described for me, however, something interesting did happen that I found very helpful.

1) Go to a folder or set of pictures, hold down CTRL, and click on each picture in a folder, for example: they will open in separate tabs

2) Go to each tab and hit the trash can one at a time

3) This resolves the problem of being sent to a new screen every time you delete a photo.  Instead, each new tab gets sent to that screen while you move along and delete the rest of the selected pictures.

As far as a temporary fix, this meets my needs.  Thanks!
