You may also request that Facebook pictures be removed from your friends’ profiles. If the picture is extremely offensive, you may also submit it to Facebook and request that it be removed for breaking its terms of service. This guide is just for pictures you’ve posted to Facebook.

On Android and iOS, you may delete Facebook pictures.

The Facebook mobile app isn’t as strong as it once was. It’s really a bad location to keep track of all of your Facebook pictures. If you absolutely need to, you can perform some basic trimming using the mobile app.

Individual pictures are deleted.

Individual pictures are very simple to remove. To remove a picture, just open it and use the menu (three-dot) button. Select and confirm the “Delete picture” option. After that, it will remove your Facebook picture. This method works for both profile and cover pictures.

Delete Facebook picture albums and images in bulk

This one is a little more difficult, but it’s completely possible with Facebook’s current app. You can’t do anything like mass-select pictures as you can in your gallery app. However, there are methods for deleting a large number of pictures at once.

To see all of your photos on Facebook, go to your profile page and choose “See All Photos.”

Swipe left on this screen until you reach the albums tab.

Tap the three-dot menu button in the upper right corner of the album’s main page. Select the “Remove” option and accept the request to delete the album and all of the photos included inside it.

This method may also be used to remove pictures from Facebook in bulk. Simply create a new throwaway album and fill it with all of the pictures you no longer desire. Delete the album, as well as all of the pictures you don’t want, after that. It’s a little tedious, but it gets the job done.

On an Android smartphone, this technique was tried. The techniques should, however, be substantially relevant to both the iPhone and iPad versions. It’s also worth noting that certain albums, such as Profile Pictures, Featured Photos, Videos, and Cover Photos, aren’t editable. For certain albums, the three-dot option does not display.

Remove Facebook pictures from the internet

These days, the internet version functions nearly precisely like the applications. Similar to the smartphone versions, you may remove individual pictures or photo albums. This technique is also compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux since it works in any web browser.

Individual photos are removed.

It’s simple to remove individual Facebook pictures off the web, and there are two methods for doing it. Fortunately, both techniques are simple and fast to use.

1st method

Roll your mouse cursor over any picture on the website to enlarge it. Near the bottom of the image, a slew of controls will emerge.

Select “Delete Photo” from the “Options” menu. You’ll be asked whether, you’re sure. After you confirm the deletion, the picture will be removed.

Method number two

Go to your profile page and choose the Photos tab. This displays all of your pictures in a big grid format.

Each picture has an icon with a pencil in the upper right corner. Select “Delete This Photo” from the drop-down menu that appears when you click that button.

This technique may also be used to delete tags if desired. When you see it, just choose “Remove Tag.”

Remove picture albums from your computer (and mass delete photos)

Unfortunately, there is no simple method to remove pictures in bulk on Facebook. You can, however, bulk remove Facebook pictures pretty fast with a little ingenuity using the album deletion technique.

On the website, go to your profile and then to the Photos page. You may select from Photos of You, Your Photos, and Albums on the following page. Albums should be chosen.

On the albums page, all of your albums have a three-dot symbol in the lower right corner. Select “Delete album” from the drop-down menu.

When you delete a Facebook album, it removes all of the pictures from it. Create a new album and dump all of the photos you don’t want into it to mass delete them. After that, just delete the album, and all of the pictures inside it will vanish. You won’t be able to remove certain Facebook-created albums this way (such Profile Pictures), but you should be able to delete all of them.

On the mobile browser, you may delete Facebook pictures.

This technique isn’t too dissimilar from the others, but it is unique enough that we decided to include it in this lesson.

On the mobile browser, you may delete individual pictures.

There are a few minor techniques. This version of Facebook, to be honest, seems a lot more chaotic than the desktop website or the mobile app. Anyway, let’s get started.

If you haven’t already done so, open your browser and go to Facebook.

Go to your profile page, scroll down, and choose “See All Photos.”

To remove a picture, locate it and touch it to open it.

Just below the picture, click the “More Options” option. On the next page, you should see choices to rotate the picture left or right, or to remove it. To remove the picture, click delete and then agree on the following screen.

On the mobile browser, you may remove albums (and pictures in bulk).

Again, this is just a minor distinction from the standard website and mobile applications. It is, nevertheless, distinctive enough to be perplexing. Please keep in mind that you won’t be able to remove Facebook-created albums like Profile Photos or Cover Photos this way. It will only function with albums that you have made.

As usual, go to Facebook’s website and to your profile. Scroll down your profile and choose “See All Photos” from the drop-down menu.

A couple of your albums should appear in the top half of the next screen, with an opportunity to see the rest. To see all of your albums, just click.

Choose the album you wish to get rid of. A three-dot menu button appears in the upper right corner of the next page as it loaded. Select “Edit” from the drop-down menu.

On the following screen, you may choose to remove the album and all of the pictures included inside it.

This works in the same manner as the mobile applications and desktop sites for bulk deleting pictures. Make a throwaway album, add the pictures you don’t want, and then delete the album to get rid of them all.

It’s strange how the mobile website necessitates additional procedures that aren’t required by the normal website or mobile applications. On Facebook’s mobile page, though, deleting pictures is still simple and fast.

Final Thoughts.

There are a few more options as well. This and other Google Chrome extensions erase your complete Facebook history, but it may take a few attempts. That, however, is far more than just removing a few old pictures.
