Mini iPad and deleting photos

Out of a sequence of photos taken by the Mini iPad I am only able to delete every second photo. As soon as one photo has been deleted the next can't. It is bad enough that it is awfully complicated to delete imported photos, but this is confusing!

From your description, if these photos are taken w/ the iPad's camera then the images are stored in the 'Camera Roll' and should be easily deleted there. Just one question - are you using Photostream in iCloud? If so, some funny behavior can occur - check HERE for an Apple FAQ support article.
If not, then your might want to 'Force Close' the Photo App and if not effective proceed to 'Restart' and then if needed 'Reset' the iPad (directions below if not familiar w/ these maneuvers, the first being iOS dependent). Please post back your results. Dave
When an app (or several) are misbehaving, I usually go through the following steps:
1. Force Close - open the multi-tasking bar (double tap the 'home buttom' or use multi-gesturing and swipe up):
a. iOS 6.x - press & hold an app until all begin to 'jiggle'; find the offending app(s) and press the 'red circle w/ minus sign' - return to the home screen & try again.
b. iOS 7.x - find the offending app - then press and drag to the top of the screen - return to the home screen & try again.
2. Restart - press & hold the 'Sleep/Awake' (a.k.a. power) button until a red slider appears (may take a few seconds) - move the slider to turn off the iPad; then press & hold the same button until the Apple logo appears - wait for a restart.
3. Reset - press & hold the 'Power' and 'Home' buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears - this may take a longer time, so have patience; the iPad will 're-boot' - NOTE that none of these maneuvers will alter your apps, files, or settings.
