If you want to take a temporary photo with your iPhone, and not have to remember to delete it from your Photo Library later one, use the Notes app instead. You can take a photo right from the app, and it will appear in the current note, but not your Photo Library. You can then delete the photo from the Note, or the entire note.

Here's a problem I run into all the time.
I want to take a picture of something butit's just a temporary picture , nothing I
want in my photo library.
For instance, you may want to take a pictureof a product in a store so I can maybe look
it up online later.
I may want to take a picture of the back ofa piece of stereo equipment or something like
I don't want these things in my family photoalbum.
I just want a quick picture and be able torefer to it later.
A good way to do this on your iPhone is insteadof taking the picture with the camera app
take it with the Notes app.
When you do so, and I'll do it right herein just a sample note here.
I hit the plus button and I'll hit the Camerabutton and I'll put Take Photo or Video.
So so let's work with video 2 and I'll justtake a picture here.
I'll hit Use photo and this appears here insideof my note.
The great thing is this doesn't go to my PhotoAlbum.
It's not in my photo library at all.
It's just in this note.
So not cluttering it up.
I just have it right here.
I can refer to it and then later on when I'mdone with it I can actually hit Delete and
it will delete it just like a piece of textfrom the note.
So I can get rid of it or, if I create a notethat just has that image in it, I can just
get rid of that whole note and I don't haveto have this image lying around for me to
discover years later lying in a photo albumsomewhere in my photo library.
