Deleting unwanted pictures

Is it possible to delete more than one picture at a time? I seem to be only able to highlight one picture. I press the trash can button to delete, it asks me 'yes' / 'no' question as normal. I selsct yes and it deletes. This means it takes an age to delet alot of pictures after downloading and uses up battery. Can anyone help?

Re: Deleting unwanted pictures

I have two suggestions. First, you can tag a bunch of your photos on the camera, and then delete them in one operation. You can also delete all the photos on the camera in one operation. This is explained in the owner's manual on page 45 (can be downloaded from Deleting images 1. Select a desired sub menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the OK button. [Select] : Selection window for an image to delete is displayed. - Up/ Down/ Left/ Right : Select an image - Zoom T Button : Select the image for deletion. (V mark) - OK Button : Press the OK Button to display the confirmation message. Select the [Yes] menu and press the OK button to delete marked images. [All Pics] : Displays confirmation window. Select the [Yes] menu and press the OK button to delete all unprotected images. If there aren?t protected images, all the images are deleted and a [No Image!] message will display. 2. After deletion, the screen will be changed to the play mode screen. My alternative suggestion is to use a better program on your PC for downloading and organizing photos. You can get a really nice (and free!) one at When you download photos using this, it gives you the option of deleting the downloaded photos from the camera at the same time.

Deleting pictures from disc

It varies with different brands and models of camera, but it is almost always simple, something like this: Go to viewing mode, usually by pressing a button with an arrow on it. You can step through the pictures with left and right sides of the button ring. If you want to delete one, press the button with a trash can on it. It will ask if you are sure. You will have to move the highlight to "Yes", and press OK. This will only delete that one. In a few cameras, the list with Cancel and Yes will also have Delete All. That one will delete all the pictures on the card.

How do you delete multiple images from camera?

Are the pictures on a memory card? In that case, you're much better off formatting the card. If you continue to delete unwanted pictures, you'll fragment the card and ultimately you'll have problems. Every day somebody posts here with that problem. Formatting cleans things up.

If the pictures are in internal memory, select Internal Memory Tool from the Setup menu, and you can format the internal memory, deleting all the pictures. My earlier comments hold true here as well.

If you insist on keeping some pictures and deleting others, then go into the index (thumbnail) mode. Press the trashcan button, then select [Select] with up/down, then press *. Select images with the arrows, then press * to display the delete indicator on the selected pictures, Press the trashcan, select [OK], then press *.

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 pictures from cybershot viewer


I had the same problem with my digital cam/corder! An alternative solution to deleting pictures off the camera is, trickily enough, through your computer! This may be a bit of a hassle as you have preloaded your pics. What you will need to do is redownload your pics. You should be asked the option of deleting your pictures after download, and you click on the box.
