How can I delete unwanted photos from my iPad?

Thanks for any help you can provide. I bought a used iPad 1 with 400+ of the previous owner’s photos on it. Not having a laptop or PC, I co-opted my sister’s Mac for a 1-time synch. My 1st priority was to upgrade from 4.3 to 5.1(success). Obviously not knowing what I was doing, I managed to import another 400+ of my sister’s photos! I’ve tried to delete all these photos following standard instructions-open album, press box with forward arrow, select individual photos, press red delete button. In my case the red delete button stays “unlit”, a sorta dull red, and thus, I can’t delete. I’m at half-wits end. Can you help. Thanks again and I hope the future quality of your help requests improves.

    1. Connect iped to pc and launch iTunes2.
    Choose 'Photos'3. Untick the album in which the photo lies that you wish to
    erase.4. Sync the iPad in the usual way and the chosen album will be removed
    from the ipad5. Go to Windows and select My Pictures and then the album just
    removed from the iPad6. Select the photo you want not to appear in the iPad
    and move it to another directory7. Go back into iTunes and
    then the 'Sync' Page, choose Photos again and replace the tick for the album
    concerned8. Re'Sinc' the iPad and the album will appear without the un-needed

      I have the same problem of not being able to delete photos that I have moved from my computer to iPad by mistake. But when I got onto iTunes there are no folders listed under the Photo tab. What can I do now?
