I synched all my photos with Lightroom, now would like to delete them from my Phone. There is no delete function in the Sony Album (Android Album?) however. How can I get rid of all photos taken?

    Have you tried a file manager, and deleting the images on the file system level?

  • I finally deleted them from Windows Explorer. However I wonder that there is not a simple function for this. I use the Phone as a camera and after thhe files are imported in LIghtroom I want to get rid of them on the phone. Looks like a special app s required to delete photos.

  • You might want to put your solution into an answer and accept it (the latter at least until a possible better solution might be offered ;)

Deleting based on File Extension:

You may install Terminal Emulator from Play Store. Open it and enter the commands.

find $EXTERNAL_STORAGE $SECONDARY_STORAGE -iname "*.jpg" -exec rm {} \;

You may replace *jpg with *png , *jpeg , or other extensions involving picture formats.

  • thats a cool idea

Connect your device to a computer and find the folder that stores the photo. Then select all with CRTL + A, right-click and select Delete option from pop up menu

It's very simple step and there is no need to install any app.

  1. Go to album
  2. Press and select one picture/video
  3. Once you select a picture you will see top right corner option
  4. Open it and you will see select all

Select all images including videos and delete it.
