On the iPhone 5, how do you delete pictures from your camera roll without deleting them in other albums?

I'm trying to organize my photos and I don't want all of them in my camera roll but every time I go to delete a picture from just the camera roll it only gives the option of "delete everywhere". Is there any way to change that?

There are two methods to delete photos from iPhone Camera Roll:
1. Import the Camera Roll to your computer, choosing to delete photos after import.
2. Delete photos from your iPhone 5 manually. Open the Photos application, open the Camera Roll, tap the Action button, tap each photo to select it, and tap the Delete button.
Note: For photos you want to save for later, import them to your computer before deleting them from the Camera Roll.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to delete pictures from your camera roll without getting rid of those that are in other albums. The only option you'll find when trying to delete pictures from the camera roll is "delete everywhere".
