Good day,

I purchased an olympus fe 190 camera,and there are different image qualtiy settings.
I just take pictures for leisure,and print it in the regular size..
what setting should i choose? i copied the chart here.
If i choose hq,would the quality be not as good as in the shq?

SHQ 2816 × 2112 Low
compression

HQ 2816 × 2112 Standard
compression

SQ1 2048 × 1536 Standard
compression

SQ2 640 × 480 Standard
compression

Take the pictures at the highest quality setting as long as you get a reasonable amount of pictures on your storage medium (the memory chip in your camera).

You can always decrease the file size of the pictures later, for space and/or email consideration, if needed. But if you take the photos at a low quality setting to begin with you will not be able to get any higher quality later for those pictures taken.

Yea I would always take the picyures at the best setting. Then if I need to edit them work only on a copy of the picture to down size etc.

If you took a picture at a lower setting later your find out that you wished you had used the higher setting so you would of gotten a better picture so take the best picture you can with your camera.

It depends on the size of hte memory card that you have though. If you have anything around the area of 512-1gb then you shold be fine at max res. Anything lower then you'd have a problem with getting a reasonable amount of pictures in at max res.
