How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

How do i delete photos from a nikon d 60 digital camera


To delete individual pictures, press the trashcan button while viewing the picture, then confirm.
To delete all pictures, format the memory card. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that hadn't been formatted recently.
The format command is in the setup menu. Full details are in the "Formatting Memory Cards" section of the manual (page 24 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one here.

Did all my pictures get deleted when i press the word fomatted while i was in the menu? Is there anyway to get all my pictures back?


I have had success with this photo recovery program... Download the program from
http://download.cnet.com/Asoftech-Photo-Recovery/3000-12511_4-10913438.html?part=dl-10913438&subj=dl&tag=button

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

How do i delete all pictures off my camera


  1. Press the play button--which features a picture of a solid triangle in the middle of a rectangle--on the backside of the camera.
  2. Press the "menu" button to access the playback menu.
  3. Rotate the multi-selector dial to scroll the menu cursor to the "delete" option represented by a trash can.
  4. Scroll to the option "erase all images" and press the "OK" button on the backside of the camera.
  5. Scroll to the "yes" option on the confirmation dialogue and press the "OK" button on the backside of the camera. If a removable SD memory card is inside the camera, the camera will delete all of the photos on the card. If there is no SD memory card, the camera will delete all photographs in the internal memory.

Deleting images


Generally your camera will have a main menu, which lists this as an option.

Look for a menu button on your digital camera. While the camera is on, press this button, and cycle through the options that appear, watching for a listing which says something like "Erase all".

Usually there will be another button or set of buttons that have arrows on them, and let you move up and down among the listed options. Press the up or down button (or the right/left button, whichever applies to your camera), until the "Erase all" option is highlighted.

There should also be a button on your camera that says something like "Ok" or "Function Set"; no matter what it's called, the important thing is that it is NOT one of the buttons which either opens the menu listings (the one I'm describing as the "menu" button, regardless of what your camera calls it), or moves between menu items (the up/down/left/right buttons). Once you have found the menu item for "Erase all", and have highlighted it, press this button.

You will probably get a message asking you to verify your choice, since once the photos are deleted from your camera, you won't be able to retrieve them, so most cameras will ask you to confirm any erasing you do, whether it's just one picture, or all the pictures in your camera's memory/storage. You confirm the deletion by pressing the same button that you used to start the deletion process.

So, to recap:

1) Turn the camera on.
2) Find and press the "Menu" button.
3) Find and press the arrow/next button until you see a menu item saying something like "Erase all".
4) Find and press the "OK" button -- or whatever button will get the camera to accept the menu item selection you've made.
5) If the camera asks you to confirm your choice, use the arrow/direction keys to highlight the "Yes" or "OK" option in the confirmation window.
6) Press the same button you used to start the process ("OK" or "Function Set"), one more time to confirm your choice.
7) The camera should now delete all of the photos in its memory.

WARNING: DO NOT DELETE YOUR PHOTOS UNTIL YOU'VE DOWNLOADED THEM, UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT YOU'LL NEVER WANT THEM. It is always better to have an extra backup of your pictures than to permanently lose something you can't replace.

If anyone else has used the camera, it's best to check with them to make sure that they've downloaded their pictures off of the camera, before doing a full delete of all pictures on the camera.

Most cameras will also let you individually delete pictures that came out badly, or where you accidentally took a picture you didn't mean to take. If you're not sure what else is in the camera's memory, it's always wisest to use this method, instead of deleting all the pictures at once.

Deleting photos


Most digital cameras have a menu which will let you DELETE ALL or FORMAT the card or the internal memory (when the card is removed... many cameras have no internal memory).

You did not mention in the post what kind of camera you have. The small point and shoot Nikons all have an internal menu to either format or delete all the pictures or delete one at a time. Usually the one at a time delete can be accessed from any record mode when you go to the quick or review menu. The more detailed menu is accessed when the camera is in the record mode of any kind then go to the menu or setup menu, from there you will see the delete or erase all and the format card option.
Hope this helps.
