Photos is a built-in iPhone application that organises and displays photos that you've take on your iPhone and that you have imported from iTunes. The application allows you to delete individual photos from the photo albums directly from your iPhone. However, if you want to delete an entire photo album, you have to use iTunes to remove the album as part of the sync process.
