What I have done is set up for iTunes to sync only pictures I put in a particular folder. I cleverly named it "Photos to Sync" so my pea-sized brain would remember. Then in iTunes, with the device attached, select Photos under the device and specify that folder as the only one to sync. If you want, you could set up folders for each device to have different pictures on your iPhone, iPad, etc. Since i sync through iTunes frequently, all I need to do is delete the picture from the folder on the MBP and it disappears on my iDevice at the next sync. The downside to this is that I have to COPY the picture to the sync folder if I don't want to delete it from the MBP, but I don't have too many pictures I want to keep, so the duplicates in the sync folder aren't a real hassle or space hog.

It would be nice to delete from the iDevice, but I guess the developers were concerned that you could accidentally delete it from the iDevice not realizing that when you sync the next time it would be deleted from the MBP. If that happened, you could lose the picture altogether.
