As we all know,as a photograph lover who are holding an iPod touch, you must have taken a great number of photos with the small gadget. But there are some situations you may encounter that bring with the need of deleting these photos permanently.

With Too many photos on your iPod Photo Library, you probably can’t wait to delete all of them to free up your iPod space.

Both versions of this program empower you to delete iPod Photo Library in batch. Before deletion, you can transfer your iPod Photo Library on your computer for backup and sharing.
