Deleting Photos

As far as I can tell, there's no way to do this.  There really should be.

I'm just trying to replace photos I've previously uploaded with better ones.  But what if someone made a mistake and really uploaded the wrong photo for an individual?  There seems to be no way to fix that.  Suppose a family member objects - no way to delete it.  Suppose there's a copyright issue - no way to delete it.

I really think this needs to be fixed.

If you unlink a photo from all profiles in gets deleted as an "orphan" after 2 weeks - as advised by Chris W.

I think a delete option would be more elegant but you can acheive the same result.

Thanks, Wombat.  That's all I was looking for.  I just didn't see the bit about unlinking the photo from the profile.  Delete would be more straightforward, but that does the job.
