Re: key icon

Turn the wheel to the green arrow (playback mode) and turn the power on. Select Menu. The Playback Menu is automatically selected in the center, so click OK/Func. The first option is the key. Click OK/Func. You can then scroll through your pictures and turn the key on or off using the arrow keys. After turning it on/off on each picture, click OK/Func which takes you back to the main screen.

How to delete pictures from a canon power shot sd 1000

It's very easy, there are 2 ways:
1) Using the camera itself:
  1. Slide the black slide switch on the back to the lowest position (to access stored pictures; now the images you took earlier can be seen on the screen.)
  2. Using the directional keys, browse to the image you want to delete.
  3. Press the down directional key (marked with a blue icon of a 'picture' being put into a dustbin)
  4. Confirm by selecting "yes" and pressing "func.set". the image is now deleted.
2) Using a computer (more convenient when you want to delete multiple/all the stored images:
  1. After plugging the camera in (using the supplied cable) open "my computer"
  2. open the camera and keep opening the folders until you find the pictures you have taken.
  3. Holding down the "ctrl" key on the keyboard, click on all the images you want to delete to select them. (if you want to delete all the images you have taken, replace this step with; click on "file" or "organize" and then click "select all")
  4. press the "delete" key. click "yes" now you have deleted the pictures.
There you go. I hope I was helpful.

I was doing some adjustments yesterday and today I can't delete the pictures from the camera. When I hit the trash button a cancel sign comes up on the button of the viewfinder and the picture won't...


Looks liek the pictures have been protected.

What you need to do to resolve this is please get the picture on the display and press the ISO key to unprotect it. You will notice that a small key icon is there, which is go away.

Once all the pictures have been unprotected, you may delete them.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

Borrowed camera. PowerShot SD500. How do I delete a picture?

You can download the PowerShot SD500 user guide/manual here:

But the short and skinny is here:

To erase single images:

1) Use the <- or -> button to select an image for deletion and press the "little trash" icon.

2) Use the <- or -> button to select [Erase] and press the FUNC./SET button.
To exit instead of erasing, select [Cancel].

You'll find the erase information on pages 131 and 132 of the pdf.

Have fun!

Dont know how to delete pics from sd card

When you are viewing the pictures in your digital camera there should be an icon of a trash can to delete the picture-
Also if you have a sd card reader for your computer you could just put it in there and highlight the pictures you want to delete and press the delete button on your keyboard.

Cant remove picture on digital camera

As per the last persons solution the key icon does indicate you have locked the photo. First select the photo you want to delete, press menu, select playback menu, the key icon appears, press the weird shaped arrow button to the right of the OK; phot unlocks and allows to delete!!

Delete pictures

Look for a little icon on one of your buttons, it should be blue, it will look like a little trash can. Make sure your camera is on review picture mode, and then push the button to delete the photo.
