"...ask all your basic photographic questions here!" The camera I have goes from 640 x 480 up to 2272 x 1704. I've left it set to the highest setting, SHQ 2272 x 1704, just because. When viewing the full image on the computer, it's HUGE. Fortunately the computer automatically resizes for viewing purposes. If I set it to a smaller resolution setting, say 1280 x 960, does this compromise the QUALITY of the image or just the SIZE? I'm guessing the larger size is for editing and printing purposes. If I printed a normal sized picture, would i notice a difference between pictures taken with different resolution's? Does everyone take pictures with the highest resolution possible and then just resize the image afterwards if you want to send it via e-mail?
