    I don't know what you mean by 1600 resolution, bu the XT is 8mp. You should set the quality to large fine jpg or RAW and never change it, unless you really don't care about what you are photographing.

    Well I use Nikon so it may differ but for me I click MENU-then the camera icon-then image quality.

    Hope it helps, I think that is what you are looking for:)

    ditto what Digital Matt said.

    Press Menu, then the first option that comes up is for your file size. Press set to enter the menu. Select the top left one (fine, large JPEG) or select Raw - depending on how your workflow is set up.

    Then never change it. :) That'll be the highest quality for all your photos then. You never know when that simple snapshot will turn into your masterpiece. :)
