Is there a way to delete photos from a deployment? I accidentally uploaded images that were left on an SD card and are not part of a deployment. When I try to delete them with the bulk edit option, it opens a window that says they are protected and can't be deleted.

Hi Andrew,

There's a 14 day window after uploading images for you to delete them from your project. It sounds like you may be past the 14 day window - I'll reach out to you individually to figure out the best option to move forward!

Can you delete all images in one operation? One of my folders didn't upload properly so I have 3000 images of 9999 that uploaded but not in consecutive order. Easier to delete all and start again? How do I do that?

I do not think there is an option yet to delete all images from a deployment at once.

But it can be done: 1) filter the images by the deployment that did not upload correctly in the identify tab (so you don't delete images from other deployments); 2) select in the bottom of the page to see the 200 images per page; 3) Ctrl-A (PC) or Command-A (Mac); this will select all the images in view. Select delete and repeat until all images from that deployment have been erased.
