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.

How can I manage my icloud to gain more storage space without paying for more storage space?

Here are some methods to help if you don't have enough space on iCloud.

Method 1. Delete Photos/Videos from iCloud
One of the biggest data hogs to take up your iCloud storage space is the photos and videos. iPhone/iPad will automatically back up all your videos and photos to your iCloud. Therefore, deleting photos and videos from iCloud will free up iCloud storage a lot.
1. Tap on Setting > iCloud > Storage. Then tap on Manage Storage.
2. And then tap on This iPhone.
3. Under the Backup options, you will see Photo Library option, set the slider to OFF position.
4. Tap on Turn off & Delete to delete all photos and videos from iCloud.

Method 2. Delete Data & Documents
If you still find that there is no enough storage on your iCloud, you can try to delete these app-related documents and data to free up iCloud storage.
1. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage.
2. Select an app under "Documents & Data".(The first one genrally takes the biggest storage)
3. After selecting the app, tap the "Edit" tab in the upper right corner and then select the specific document to remove, or tap the "Delete All" tab.

Method 3. Close Unnessary Backups for Apps
If there are entire apps that you don't need to backup, you can do so by following the steps below to fix not enough iCloud storage for your iOS devices:
1. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage.
2. Select the device you want to manage the backup for.
3. Under "Backup Options", toggle apps off that you do not want to sync to iCloud.

Some other guides will be introduced in the following article. Please feel free to check them out.

How to delete multiple photos

You did not say which model Coolpix camera you have (there have been 168 models over the years) so I can only give you general information on deleting multiple photos; i.e., deleting all pictures in the memory.

On some models there are two buttons, usually the trash and one other button, labeled with a red dot. Depressing both buttons at the same time for a few seconds will erase everything. If your camera does not have that feature, the other method is to use the "delete all" menu function. Enter your camera's menus and scroll through them. You should find that function in the menus.

I strongly suggest that you follow the link at the bottom of this posting and download the manual for whichever model Coolpix you own for free. The Nikon's manuals all cover the process.

How do I delete photos off the camera roll without deleteing them off the album

There are two methods to delete photos from iPad Camera Roll:
1. Import the Camera Roll to your computer, choosing to delete photos after import.
2. Delete photos from your iPad manually. Open the Photos application, open the Camera Roll, tap the Action button, tap each photo to select it, and tap the Delete button.
Note: For photos you want to save for later, import them to your computer before deleting them from the Camera Roll.

Need a shortcut for deleting over 5000 unwanted messages

If you are in a classic view in yahoo mail, the only way is if you switch to "All New Mail".
It has a continuous mail page which allows you to delete all at once. Click on "more actions"---then, "Select All Messages" and then "Delete".
You can always switch back to Classic afterward.

*I hope this will fix your problem.

You will need to format the memory. Have a look at the manual for instructions or download from this link. The format instructions are on page 36

You will need to allow popups to show this page.

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.
