it looks like the system is not updating the folder view
you can run sfc, or even a repair install :

I assume this is Windows 7 since it is in the Windows 7 area.

In the earlier versions of windows this doesn't happen since they have a different mechanism to update the UI. But in win 7 they changed the mechanism of it and that gives an unnecessary complicated situation. You can call it as a Win 7 bug but Win 7 will reject it as "By design".

What actually happen is the file is deleted but the UI didn't get updated. So if u refresh the window you might see they are disappeared. Whether it happens or not the files are deleted and don't waste your time on that.

imo, this is what happens
1- you delete the pics, and immediately they are removed
2-you keep seeing them, because the folder view is not updated (it is if you close the folder, and reopen it)
3-if you try to open a deleted pic, it will produce an error, because they are not there anymore

basemkhawaja64--What nobus is saying is that the icon for deleted file may only be a ghost.  The file has in fact been deleted.   Click on the ghost to see if the file really has been deleted.
If this is the case, why do you care that the ghost remains until you go on to another folder and will be gone when you reopen that first file?
What happens when you delete a file other than an image file?

I suspect this behavior will clear up after a while.

Sorry for late reply.
What I meant is exactly what nobus has pointed out.
Why I asked the question is if you can open them then there is an actual problem.
Now I think you understand it better.

Explorer is not automatically refreshing itself, you could try doing a maintinence like system disc cleanup, empty bins and defrag the drive
Deleted Files Don't Disappear Without Refresh

Windows Explorer doesn't refresh when moving/deleting
