    I have the Motorola Droid and I would like to know if anyone knows how to delete an entire album instead of just one photo at a time. The google app downloaded all of my photo albums from google and I do not want them on the phone. PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you!!

    Get a file manager, Astro is great, you can select 'Multi" and eliminate multiple at a time, or delete the folder and start a new one if it is really full.

    You could hook up to a computer via usb and delete right off the SD card too... kludgy but it would work.

    Open up your gallery and long press one of your pictures. You will be able to add check marks on all photos you want to delete from your phone. Hit confirm and then they are gone! Thats the only way I know how to delete a bunch of pics at once.

    Tap a photo in your album and then long press it and all your photos will show up in that album. You can add check marks to the photos you want to delete. If you want to get rid of the album then add check marks to every photo then hit the delete button on screen and that will wipe them out or do as someone else suggested, hook your phone up to your computer and delete them off that way.

    Even though you delete them there is still a cache with every picture that ever passes through your phone, so you may want to download a file manager to get rid of them if they are socially sensitive.

    I love how the gallery pulls pictures from all my web sources;
    However: there is one folder in my gallery called Dropbox with a graphic nude pic of myself that I can't find in my Dropbox. Any idea how to find this file?
