Default Deleting read only picture files

Please Login to Remove!

I have several photos that are "read only" files on my Curve 8530 and I cannot get them to delete. Actually, they just show up when you click on "all pictures". They are photos I took with my Curve but do not want to keep any longer. However when you try to click on one to open, it only brings up the box with the sun an mountains inside. (drawing)
Please, can someone tell me how to get rid of these photos in my "all pictures" folder?

You can connect your device to your computer and then access the SD card or the device memory (wherever you saved the images) and just delete them that way.

That was the first thing I tried. However, the images were still on my BB. I finally removed the battery from the BB and when I rebooted it, they were gone. Thanks for the reply.

I have several pictures that don't even show "delete" on the context menu. This is just plain stupid. Seems to be a new feature in .419?

Dumb.
