Image size and quality
Changing image size and quality affects the number of pixels in
each image as well as the compression rate. Image size and quality
are set in the auto, scene selection, and manual recording menus;
see page 36 for menu operation.

Changing image size affects the number of pixels in each image.
The greater the image size, the larger the file size. Choose image
size based on the final use of the image - smaller images are more
suitable for web sites whereas larger sizes produce higher quality
prints. Compression affects the file size and image detail. Normal
compression is sufficient for most uses. Fine makes higher quality
image, but file sizes are larger.
If image resolution is changed, the frame counter displays the
approximate number of images that can be recorded at that setting
on the installed memory card. If the settings are changed, the frame
counter adjusts accordingly. Because the counter uses approximate file sizes, the actual image
taken may not change the counter or may decrease it by more than one.
The number of images that can be stored on a memory card is determined by the size of the card
and the file size of the images, however no more than 999 images can be recorded on one memory
card. The actual file size is determined by the scene; some subjects can be compressed further
