Hello--I was hoping someone could help me figure out how I can delete images that are in my gallery. they were not taken with the camera but believe were brought in via bluetooth, but I am unable to delete them from the gallery--any ideas?

When you open the gallery, select the group of photos where the photo you want to delete is located. Once those photos expand for individual photo viewing, select/press and hold the photo you want to delete and the delete option will appear, along with check-boxes for multiple photo deletion.
Hope that helps....

Hi Kerri, If you press and hold the pic or file you want deleted, the menu will come up at the bottom of the screen to SHARE, DELETE, OR MORE options. Obviously hit delete. Hope this works.

Thanks for the tip(s) but it seems that the images that came in thru bluetooth do not have the option to be deleted when I press and hold the image. The only options are Share and More (which only offers Details).
I tried connecting the phone to my windows 7 computer but it seems the MTP driver is not compatible (is Win7 not supported yet?).
Any other ideas?

I had this issue as well and I discovered that the pictures I could not delete were actually photos that had synced with Picasa and they are actually online. To disable this go to settings, accounts and sync and click on Google. At this point you will be able to turn off "Sync Picasa Web Albums".
Hope this helps.

if when you go to Account and Sync, the sync for Google is already off. I keep finding pics in my gallery that I didnt take, they look liek they are off the web. I delete them and then they come right back???

Gallery app shows ALL picture files on your phone, not just the photos you took, in addition to Picasa web album. For examples, apps and games often contain graphic image files in its own folder. These image files will be picked up by media scanning and show up in Gallery app. To tell media scanning process to skip these folders, you will have to create some dumy files in those folders (file need to be named .nomedia or something like that).
