Deleted Image on My Memory Card

Hi There,

I'ms sure this has happened to a few people. I was out taking some photos and took this one that was just perfect. After reviewing it on the Camera LCD screen I accidentally hit the delete button. Is there anyway of retrieving the image with a special program or anything. I have a MacBook Pro and the picture is on an SDHC Card.

I have managed to retrieve deleted images using my MacBook Pro and a free software called TestDisk (and the included PhotoRec).

There is one thing to remember. If you took photos after the incident, it might be more difficult or impossible.

Advise: if photos on a card are deleted or a card gets corrupted, don't use it any longet till you have recovered the photos. This is a general rule that applies to all 'harddisk' type storage devices (card, memory stick, harddisk,...) in any type of equipment (computer, camera, personal video recorder etc).
