Description

Changing the recording pixels and compression ratio of an image taken (PowerShot ELPH 530 HS / 320 HS, IXUS 510 HS / 240 HS)

Solution

You can adjust the size and data volume of an image according to the purpose of use by changing the recording pixels and compression ratio of the image.
For example, you increase the recording pixels when you want to print the image on a large piece of paper, and decrease them when you want to attach the image to your email.
This section explains the method for changing the recording pixels and compression ratio of an image taken.
IMPORTANT
  • The following explanations are provided based on the assumption that the [Shooting Mode] is set to [Program AE] (
    ).
  • We explain by using the example where the recording pixel and compression ratio settings have never been changed.
