Deleting photos from camera

I have read directions & they are not clear to me. I want to remove
some photos from camera & keep others. My menu comes up
saying "select all", and I'm afraid to use this for fear of deleting all
my photos.
I have most of my photos loaded into my computer.
My camera is Canon PowerShot A560 digital.

Hi,

For the Powershot A560:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Turn on the camera in playback mode.
2. Select a picture using the right or left arrow buttons on the back of the camera.
3. Press the button with an icon of a trash can.
4. A menu comes up:

Erase? Erase Cancel

5. Select "Erase", then press "FUNC. SET."
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Page 18 of the Powershot A560 basic manual also explains how to erase individual images.

Page 73 of the advanced manual explains how to erase all images.

You can download both user guides here.

Canon g12 is deleting my pics


If it's not deleting all your photos you may have a setting in your menu features that allow you to overwrite earlier photos if your card gets full.

Kodak easy share c182 says the internal memory is full how do I clear it


You will have to delete some photos.
If your current storage is set to memory card, you have to set it to internal memory before deleting photos.
Use the delete function in the camera menu.

I have just bought a fuji finepix EXR. When downloading pics to computer there is no option to delete them from the camera, nor can I find an option in the camera itself other than deleting them...


Hi,

Try this:
When the camera is connected to your computer, open My computer and then open the camera by double clicking on the icon. Delete the files directly from there. By doing this the photos are removed from the camera.
Hope this helps.

Cheers

How do I clear the SD memory chip so that I can reuse it?


you can probably clear it manually on the camera by going to the menu and looking for a delete or clear option.

Olympus 790SW 7.1 MP reads full 1GB memory card is full after 2 pictures


Suggestion is to format the memory card and permanently delete all of the images from it. The card should then be able to be reused and you can start taking images again. To format the card go to Menu - setup and press ok - go to format and press ok - go to yes and press Ok. This will clear the card and you are back in business.

Deleting photos


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.

DELETING PHOTOS


Hi, In your camera's menu/set-up, there is a function to "Format". This will format the memory and effectively delete all its contents. Alternately, since the digicam will be recognized by the PC as an external Removable Mass Storage/Device, displaying the contents is identical to opening a folder. Ctrl + A is to select all contents of the digicam's memory "Del" is to delete. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. good luck and kind regards.
