Hi, did you click the option to erase the photos from the card after you imported them into iPhoto? It could be that the images are still on the card and that iPhoto has just deleted the directory.
If you are sure that the photos are all on your Mac then the best thing is to use the camera's menu and reformat the card.
I have made a point of NEVER letting iPhoto delete the pictures but I delete them manually in the camera once I know they are safe in iPhoto. However, I am finding that I am no-longer deleting the photos from the card - when it is full I put it aside and use a new one - they are so cheap now - way cheaper than film is.
The best way to delete all photos from the card is to format it. This prepares it for further use. FixYa is full of people asking how to salvage pictures from cards that haven't been formatted regularly.
You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a1100_is
At this point I would probably format the memory card in the camera. This will permanently erase all images that have been written to the card. To do this: Press ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to Card Setup and then right arrow to Format - Choose Yes and then press Ok. All images are removed and going forward it should only download current images.
You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.
Your camera creates folders on the SD card to hold the images. It puts about 100 images in each folder. (See page 111 in the User Guide.) When you erase images, it may only be erasing the images in one folder. But your computer still sees the images in the other folder(s). To completely erase all images, use the "Format" function (see pages 25 - 26 in the User Guide). To completely clear it, use the Low Level Format option. You can download the User Guide here.
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 www.samsungcamera.com):
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
- Up/ Down/ Left/ Right : Select an image
- Zoom T Button : Select the image for deletion.
- 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 www.preclick.com. When you download photos using this, it gives you the option of deleting the downloaded photos from the camera at the same time.
