Without knowing what kind of camera you have, this will be sort of a generic explanation, and I'm going to assume your computer runs on Windows.

You can delete pictures from the camera one at a time using the camera's controls - the exact procedure varies from one camera to the next, and you'll need to consult the manual. But it's easier and faster to delete them while the camera (or its memory card) is connected to the computer.

If you connect the camera to the computer with a USB cable, the camera will appear like a portable drive. Same goes if you take the camera's memory card out and plug it into a reader on the computer. Just open Windows Explorer or My Computer and look for the new drive. It will probably be drive E or higher. Then you can delete files the same way you delete any other files from a hard drive.

Every time I download new pictures, the camera also downloads older pictures already on my computer. Thanks.


After downloading pictures, are you keeping all your pictures on the camera card and never deleting them? Your card must be very full. Also, your computer can't tell the difference between new pictures and the ones you don't want to download. Why not download everything and then format the card in the camera for a fresh start?

Pictures delete from the camera when I download on the camera.


On the side of your memory card there is a little switch that says LOCK. put it in the lock position, then the computer will not be allowed to delete the pictures from the camera. Usually when you download the pictures to your computer, there is a little pop-up window that asks if you want to keep or delete the originals. That is referring to the originals on your camera.

Photo recovery from the camera


Even if you accidentally deleted the pictures from camera memory, it is just like clearing the recycle bin or Trash of your computer. But that doesn't mean you have lost the files permanently as you can rely on recovery software to get them back if possible. As to recover deleted pictures, recommend you have a try of Wondershare Photo Recovery, a program which can recover lost pictures, videos can music with both Windows and Mac version, you can free download the program from the sites,

(For Windows Users)
http://www.wondershare.com/pro/photo-recovery.html
(For Mac OS Users)
http://www.wondershare.com/pro/mac-photo-recovery.html

Step-to-Step Instruction:

1. Download and install the trial version on your computer, then connect your camera memory card to the computer (I assume you are using Windows). Start Wondershare Photo Recovery and select the drive letter that assigned to camera memory card.
2. Then choose the file type (all, photo, video, music) click "Star Scan".
3. Now the scanning process will start automatically to look for the deleted items. You will then get a list of all recoverable ones.
4. Preview the photos. If your deleted ones are found, then you need pay to get the activation code. And click "Recover".

Tips:
1. Take the free trial version before you buy.
2. Before your deleted items are recovered, do not take more photos or videos.

I hope you good luck, Merry Christmas!
