How to delete synced photos from iPad

You can remove photos taken with the iPad’s camera, copied via the camera kit or saved from emails/websites directly on iPad, but you can’t delete synced photos directly on the iPad. Photos that were synced from your computer are deleted by moving/removing/ de-selecting them from where they were synced from on your computer and then re-syncing.
