My digital camera has 23 different photo resolution options :shock: Which means that I find getting the right balance between image quality and number of shots on the media card to be quite a bewildering choice.. I've narrowed my options down somewhat through experience but there's one thing that's confusing me a bit: Is it better to have more pixels at a higher JPEG compression or less pixels at a lower compression? I've just done a quick little test - I've taken a pic at 4 MP resolution with normal JPEG compression and the same pic at 2MP with very low compression. The 4MP photo comes out at a size of 810KB and the 2MP photo comes out at a size of 1233KB...much larger, which suggests to me that the 2MP photo should be better as there's more image info. However, when I look at the two on my monitor the 4MP pic actually looks better. This leads me to believe that more pixels is preferable to lower compression....What are your views on this? I'm mainly interested in viewing photos on the PC rather than printing them, but if I did decide to print would the JPEG compression levels be more of a factor for hard copy quality? Sorry for the long rambling post but this has been bugging me for a few days now.
