You didn't specify the make and model of your camera so I can only give you a general idea.
On most cameras there's a playback mode. You usually get into it by pressing the playback button (almost always marked with a right-pointing triangle). You can then navigate through the stored images with the cursor keys or a command dial. When you find an image you want to delete, you press a button marked with a trash can. The camera may or may not ask for confirmation; if it does, respond.
If you want to delete all images, its better to format the memory card. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve images from a card that hadn't been formatted recently.
If you need further assistance, please feel free to reply to this post but be sure to include the make and model of your camera.

Delete pictures from camera? How?

When you are viewing your images on the camera, go through them until you come to the one you want deleted. Then, hit the physical MENU button on the right side of the control wheel (circle...whatever it's called).
You should see three choices. Protect, Delete, and VOLUME. Press down (the minus, or "-", part on the the bottom of the wheel control) until you get to Delete on the screen. Then, press the center button (the silver one inside the wheel - it may not be silver on your camera, I don't know, but it's the same button anyway).
Your next choices will be "Single" and "All". Choose "Single" to delete the single image on your screen. Choose "All" to delete all images that are in your camera's memory (this would be all of the images saved on your SD Card).
But, let's say that you just want to delete this one image. So you choose "Single". A dialog box will come up asking if you want to delete the image. Make sure you choose "Yes" if you do want it deleted. Once you do, the image will be deleted and gone for good. After this, if your menu choices are still open, physically hit the "Menu" button on the right until all the menu boxes close.

Deleted images from digital camera can be restored but after deleting images if we have clicked images ,is there is any way to restore that images which we have deleted????

If you have deleted the images then the space that was occupied by these images is freed for the camera to place images into the freed areas.
It is highly unlike you can recover these deleted images as they would be over written by the new images.

Dekete Images Via my PC

Hi I just phoned Panasonic because I am having the same problem. Unfortunately there is no way around this as it is a security 'feature' on the camera. Its to prevent you accidentally deleting all the images when using the camera wizard in windows. So you have to get a card reader or use the buttons on the camera to delete. You;d have thought there would be an option to disable this in the menu! Will

Idk how to delete!

You can download the manual for your camera here:

To delete photos:

  • Enter the playback mode.
  • Press the [Menu] button
  • Use the up/down buttons to select the trashcan (delete) icon.
  • You can use the left/right buttons to select single image, multiple images or All images.
  • Press the center (round) button.
  • Press the center button (repeatedly if doing multiple images) and then Press the [Menu] button again and choose OK.

That should do it.
Note that you can also delete photos quite easily by connecting the camera to your computer with the USB cable and deleting the images with Windows Explorer.

Deleting Images from the camera

You can do it in the computer is that is your route with a card reader. But deleting single images should be routine What does the manual say?- remember there is usually a more comprehensive manual on the software disk. Also 'Delete' may be referred to as something else 'Edit' for example

Two copies of the same image printed

Batch printing all images in camera memory while the camera's album generator feature is enabled, will cause such duplicate printing. This is because the album generator creates two images in camera memory: the normal image and a preview image. Batch printing all images will result in the camera printing both the normal image and the preview image. What you should do - Use the camera's DPOF settings to specify the images you want to print. Using DPOF is very simple, and it eliminates the problem of double prints. * See the User's Guide for details about DPOF image settings, specifying the number of copies, date stamping, etc. - The album generation feature also has a delete function for deleting generated album data, so you could also delete the album before batch printing.
