Q: What do the different quality settings on my camera mean for picture quality?A: Quality is inversely proportional to the amount of JPEG compression the camera uses. Thus, a higher quality image will have less compression, and vice versa.
As you lower the quality of the picture, this increase the compressions, leading to more "artifacts" in your image. The artifacts are a result of the higher JPEG compression. You notice that edges seem blurry, or little squares appear.
It is recommend that you use the middle setting for everyday photography. If you are making big prints, consider using the highest quality JPEG level.
