Edited by Thor, Courtney, Eng
Hello, welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to delete a photo from the Gallery application on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button. This button is located on top of the device.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen and swipe upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen. There will be a row of five icons featured at the bottom of the screen We will now focus on these since we will need to open up the Applications folder.
Tap on the central icon, located at the bottom of the screen. This icon features a grid of white dots. This is the icon for our Applications folder.
This will open up our "Apps" or Applications folder. We now need to find the Gallery application icon.
Locate and tap on the Gallery application icon. This icon is represented by a photo, featuring some simplified yellow sand dunes. The word "Gallery" will be written in white text underneath of this picture.
This will open up the Gallery application, the word "Albums" will be present in the top left-hand corner. What we want to do now is show how to delete a photograph. There are two ways to delete a photo. To begin the first process of deleting a photo, we need to enter an album.
Tap on the album that you would like to enter. In our case, we are going to tap on the "Family" album. As we have previously mentioned, there are two ways to delete a photo. The first way requires us to look at the photos in an album, where we are looking at a group of photos.
Press down, then hold on the photo we would like to delete.
This will open up a menu bar. We can see right at the bottom it says the word "Delete".
Pressing down on "Delete" will delete the selected photo. To delete the photo a different way, we need to actually be looking at a single photo.
Tap on the back arrow, located at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen, to exit this menu.
We are now going to tap on the photo that we would like to delete. We will be using the same photo as before to demonstrate.
This will bring us to a new screen, looking directly at the photo we selected.
Now we are going to press down at the bottom of the screen, then swipe upwards.
This will bring up multiple options for us, located at the top and bottom of the screen. However, they will disappear quite quickly. If they do, simply swipe upwards from the bottom again to reopen these options.
In the bottom left-hand corner, there will be a white garbage can icon labeled with the word "DELETE".
Tap on this icon one time, this will open a confirmation box for us. This box will ask us if we are sure we want to delete this photo. We can then choose from the two presented options, "CANCEL" or "OK".
To delete this photo, we will tap on the right option, labeled with the word "OK".
The selected photo has now been deleted. It is important to remember that there are two ways to delete photos, depending on what position we are in. If we are actually in an album, or if we are looking at an individual photo.
This then concludes our tutorial, on how to delete a photo from the Gallery application on an HTC One M8. If you have any questions or comments about this video, or about the process that you have seen in this video, please leave them in the comment section below. We shall answer them for you.
