Protect

If you want to keep an image from being accidentally erased (either with the Erase button or by using the Erase images menu), you can mark that image for protection. To protect one or more images, press the Menu button and choose Protect. Then use the left/right cross keys to view the image to be protected. Press the Set button to apply the protection. A key icon will appear at the upper edge of the information display while still in the protection screen, and when reviewing that image later (see Figure 3.34). To remove protection, repeat the process. You can scroll among the other images on your memory card and protect/unprotect them in the same way. Image protection will not save your images from removal when the card is reformatted.

Rotate

While you can set the Rebel T2i to automatically rotate images taken in a vertical orientation using the Auto rotate option in the Set-up menu, you can manually rotate an image during playback using this menu selection. Select Rotate from the Playback menu, use the left/right cross keys to page through the available images on your memory card until the one you want to rotate appears, then press Set. The image will appear on the screen rotated 90 degrees, as shown in Figure 3.35. Press Set again, and the image will be rotated 270 degrees.

Erase Images

Choose this menu entry and you'll be given two choices: Select and erase images and All images on card. The former option displays the most recent image. Press the up/down cross keys to mark or unmark an image for deletion (a check mark will appear in a box in the upper-left corner). Then, use the left/right cross keys to view other images and mark/unmark them for deletion. If you try to mark a protected image for deletion, a warning Protected appears on the screen.

When finished marking pictures, press the Trash button, and you'll see a screen that says Erase selected images with two options, Cancel and OK. Choose OK, then press the Set button to erase the images, or select Cancel and press the Set button to return to the selection screen. Press the Menu button to unmark your selections and return to the menu.

The All images on card choice removes all the pictures on the card, except for those you've marked with the Protect command, and does not reformat the memory card.

Print Order

The Rebel T2i supports the DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) that is now almost universally used by digital cameras to specify which images on your memory card should be printed, and the number of prints desired of each image. This information is recorded on the memory card, and can be interpreted by a compatible printer when the camera is linked to the printer using the USB cable, or when the memory card is inserted into a card reader slot on the printer itself. Photo labs are also equipped to read this data and make prints when you supply your memory card to them.

Slide Show

Slide show is a convenient way to review images one after another, without the need to manually switch between them. To activate, just choose Slide show from the Playback 1 menu. During playback, you can press the Set button to pause the "slide show" (in case you want to examine an image more closely), or the DISP button to change the amount of information displayed on the screen with each image. For example, you might want to review a set of images and their histograms to judge the exposure of the group of pictures. To set up your slide show, follow these steps:

1. Begin set up. Choose Slide show from the Playback 1 menu, pressing Set to display the screen shown in Figure 3.36.

2. Choose image selection method. Rotate the Main Dial to All images, and press Set. Then use the cross keys to choose from All images, Stills, Movies, or Date. If you select All, both movies and stills will show in the order captured. Press Set to activate that selection mode. If you selected All images, skip to Step 4.

3. Choose images. If you've selected Date, press the DISP button to produce a screen that allows you to select from the available image creation dates on your memory card. When you've chosen a date, press Set to confirm your choice.
