    Well if it is just pictures (or anything else for that matter), you can simply select the files or folders you wish to delete, and hit the delete button. It willl say that they will be deleted permanently. Just hit ok, as long as you don't mind them being gone forever. You can always drag them to your computer to store for future use.

    If you have any other questions or need another writeup feel free to ask.

    BTW

    Just remember to STOP your flash drive before unplugging it. Hot-swapping can corrupt your files, or make it unusable.
    To STOP double-click on the arrow pointing to the lower left in the lower right corner.
