To specify image quality

Compressing an image before storage can cause a
deterioration of its quality. The more an image is
compressed, the greater the loss of quality. The image
quality setting specifies the compression ratio used when
an image is stored in memory. You can select an image
quality setting to suit your needs for higher quality or
smaller file size.
