I'm Brian Cooley with a Quick Tip on how to manage the resolution on your Canon PowerShot camera. First of all, turn the camera on then press the functions set button, right there in the middle of your navigation wheel. You'll see a couple of selections down at the bottom of the tool bar. There's one there that has resolution, height and width. Scroll back and forth left to right and you'll see those numbers changing. That is the size of the image you'll take in pixels. Now let me tell you, that big on over there on the far left, which reads 3072 by 2304, that's a huge photo. Do you really need that if you're gonna email a snapshot to someone? No. So move to the one on the right, to one of the smaller sizes, and save yourself a lot of data space and space on your card. If you want some guidelines on what resolution matches what photo taking task, check the owner's manual for this camera. They've got a chart that gives you some idea of what resolution you should use depending on what the photos being taken for. Also, if you go above this menu one more click you'll also find resolution normal, fine, and super fine. Normally, fine is just fine. I'm Brian Cooley.
