Deleting photos from CompactFlash card - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I have over one hundred photos on my flashcard. I downloaded them (via card reader learned about in this forum - THANK YOU!)to Photoshop Album and I want to delete them from the card now. Is there an easy/fast way to do it. I have a Canon Powershot A70 camera. I can delete them one-by-one from the camera, but it is time consuming that way. Thanks for any suggestions...

    Would I need the card in the reader at the time I do this? By the way, I just found the way to delete all in the camera at the samem time (fairly easy), but I want to do it while card is in reader

    David, yes on needing the card to be in the reader when that delete
    described by Mac is performed.

    I take a conservative approach to deleting images from my card reader unless
    I'm in a big hurry. I transfer the images to my hard drive using the card
    reader, then remove the card will all the pix still on board. Then I check
    the images I've downloaded, just in case something didn't work or I forgot a
    few. When I'm satisfied that I have all the images intact on the HD, then I
    delete all the images from the CF card - and usually in the camera. Just a
    little extra insurance....

    JoAnn - I'm more inclined to think of a CF card as a small hard drive - has
    the capacity of many, MANY floppies!

    Come to think of it, my first PC with a hard drive had a whopping 20 MB hard
    drive (not a typo)...

    David,

    In the replay menu, you have a function to erase all images, within the
    camera. Look at page 133 of your user manual.
