Deleting pictures is really quite simple. Go ahead and press the playback button up here to review the pictures you’ve taken on the memory card and basically, just press the trash can button right down here, it’ll bring up this short delete menu. You can choose to delete just that one picture. You can choose to delete multiple pictures or choose to delete all the pictures. Choosing to delete just one picture is very simple, just move over to yes and press set to accept. This will delete just the one picture I’m looking at.
If I go down to delete multiple and press set, I’ll get thumbnails of the pictures on the memory card. I can use my navigation buttons here to move around and when I see a picture that I don’t like and I want to delete it, just press the display button up here to mark it for deletion. I’ll go to the next one here and mark that as well and then press set to delete all the marked pictures. The camera will ask you if you’re sure you want to delete, move up to yes and press set again.
Now, the third option as you saw, if I press the delete button again, is to delete all. Now, this is not something that I normally do because normally, if I want to erase the entire memory card, I will choose to format and that’s done via the main menu. I do, however, use the delete all function when I want to delete everything other than just a few pictures. So you saw when I used the delete multi function, I could select a few pictures and delete them all at once.
But what if I have 200 pictures that I want to delete and only four of them that I want to keep. I’d rather do something else. I’ll press the delete button again to escape this menu, go into the main menu. Go to the playback tab, so press to the left. Go down to the playback tab and move in. Now, I want to go down to page two and choose protect. I’ll go to the right, choose multi, press set and now, just as before, have to move around and choose the images that I want to protect from deleting. So I’ll press set to protect this image. Press set here to protect this one and this one as well. But all the rest are okay for deletion.
So now, I can escape this. Press the trash can button again, escape the main menu by pressing the menu button. Now, press the trash can button to get to delete menu. Go down to delete all and press set. Now, it’ll delete every picture other than those pictures that I have protected. I’ll go up to yes, press set, and as you can see the protected pictures are still on the memory card.
