Digital cameras use memory cards to store images. Erasing an image on a memory card doesn’t actually erase it from the card until it has been overwritten by a new photo. You can recover an image from a memory card that has been deleted, or “erased”, by running a memory card recovery program on a computer that can restore the image’s file structure. There are a number of free memory card recovery programs that will perform this task, with most of them working in an intuitive way that makes the procedure as accessible for a computer novice as for the more experienced user.
