      Connect iPad to computer. Select the Photos tab in iTunes. Uncheck Sync Photos. Confirm you want to Remove Photos from the iPad. Then sync. All photos should now be gone from iPad. Return to iTunes and choose Selected Albums, Events, etc. . Then check off the Albums or Events you want. Then Apply. See my earlier reply to Sandy for more on this.

    When synced my iPad 2 with my Mac, all 4000+ photos loaded onto it! What’s the best method for getting rid of so many (please don’t say one at a time!)and for making sure that doesn’t happen again?

      When your iPad is connected to your Mac, you can choose which photo collections (albums) to copy to your iPad. Look for the “Photos” tab near the top of the page. It is the last tab on the right. From there you can choose which photo collections you want to sync to your iPad. Select only the ones you want, then sync.
