I am afraid yes. Unless you had them on a digital card then there is a slight chance you can recover them.
If they were on a card that you can insert into your computer there are a few programs that may be able to recover them.
These programs can be found HERE

I have formatted internal memory and lost photos from camers


Formatting generally does that. Check to see if there is some software that can restore them. If the area where the photos were has been overwritten by other files then the answer is definitely no.

I cann't figure out how to delete photos from memory card. lost my manuel


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

Acccidentally pressed format instead of cancel...


YES, you have great chances as long as you act ASAP. Take a try of this digital camera photo recovery. Install it on your computer and connect your camera to make a free scan and recover the deleted items.

Remember
- DO NOT write anything back to your digital camera untill you recover the photos safely. Once the photos are overwritten, it is impossible to recover. Best regards.

I accidentally pressed the formatting button on my digital camera, canon powershot SD790 IS. Not knowing it erases all pictures. My question is can i get my pictures back, and if so how?


The answer is it depends on whether or not you conducted a "low level" format or not. Such a format will actually write over the card making photo recovery unlikely. But with Canon cameras, format is normally a quick erase (which is recoverable), UNLESS you manually check the "low level format" box in the menu (did you do that?). But either way, there are numerous freeware software options available for photo recovery that may work for you.
Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

When i turn the camera on it says format error and i cant take any pictures


Please take out memory stick from camera and power up camera and check still gives format error?
If no further error then put memory stick back in camera and press Menu >> Format >> OK to format memory stick. That will delete all data on memory stick and refresh it for new photos.

Accidental delete of pictures, how to recover


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

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.
