The up and down arrows on the multi-function button on the back of the camera set the image on the display. With the display on, press the up or down arrow to function through the display settings and the stop on the one you want.
This often happens when you accidentally hit one of the arrow buttons while taking the picture and this changes the display image to the histogram or other display setting.
You can delete photos from your SX130 IS in two ways:
To Delete Photos Individually:
Press Playback Mode button (looks like a play button and is located on the top right on the LCD-side of your camera)
The last image you took will appear on the LCD screen.
Use the Left & Right arrow keys or turn scroll wheel to cycle through your images
Once you find an image you want to delete, press the Trash button. The image will be erased.
Press the Playback Mode button or the FUNC/SET buttons to exit when done
To Delete ALL Photos
Press the MENU button (bottom right button on LCD-side of camera) to bring up the Menu screen
On the Playback tab (Looks like a Play button icon), use the arrow buttons or turn scroll wheel to scroll down to Erase. Press the FUNC/SET button.
You now have three options Select, Select Range, and All images. Select will allow you to delete individual images, Select Range will allow you to select a series of images, and All images will delete all images from memory. This last one is the option we are looking for.
Use the arrow keys or scroll wheel to choose All images
Use the arrow key or scroll wheel to select OK when the Erase confirmation screen pops up.
turn on your camera press the menu button on the back og the camera using the switch to the left of the screen, hit the left side once to move the screen cursor to the small icon on the left of the menu screen that looks like a "penci". now click the button to move the highlight back to the right side then move up or down to select "07" Image Review. hit the 4 way button on the right side to show the two options, on or off. move the highlight up or down to select the one you want (assuming you want "on"), then press the center of the 4way button, "OK". now when you shoot a picture it will show up on the back screen until you touch the shutter release button again.
Press the info button on the back to bring up the shooting information screen. The second item from the top on the right column is the image size. Press the button to activate the settings, then use the multiselector to navigate to the desired setting. Press OK, use the multiselector to select the desired size, then OK to set it.
Your choices are Large (3008x2000), Medium (2256x1496), and Small (1504x1000).
Note that you cannot change the image size if you're shooting RAW. The image quality setting is the one just above the image size.
Press the info button then the i button. Use left/right/up/down to navigate to the image quality setting at the top right corner of the screen. Press OK, then use up/down to select the desired JPEG setting.

Overlaying pictures, like almost all photo manipulations, is better done on a computer using "real" software rather than on a camera. You get much more control on a computer. However, the D40 does have a wide repertoire of photo manipulation capabilities.
In order to overlay images, you must be shooting in RAW (or RAW+JPEG). Select Image Overlay from the Retouch menu. A preview dialog will be displayed with Image 1 highlighted. Press OK to get a photo selection dialog. Use left/right to highlight the first picture in the overlay. (You can press and hold the Zoom button to see the selected photo fullscreen.) Press OK to select the image. Optimize exposure for the image by pressing up/down. Press left/right to highlight Image 2. Select the second image the same way. Press left/right to highlight the Preview column. Overlay will show you the result, allowing you to go back and change things if you wish. Save will save the overlaid photo.
The shadow in the lower portion of your camera is probably caused by the lens hood. The solution is simple: remove the lens hood whenever you're using the built-in flash.
Hi - My D80 allows the length of time the the image displays to be set using the menu system. You shouldn't have any trouble setting this. Mine can be set from 5 sec to 10 minutes. Lookup Monitor-Off in your manual.
