To change the resolution and compression:

1. Press the Func button.
2. Scroll down, if necessary, to the icon in the lower left corner of the LCD.
3. Use the right or left arrows to select L (large), M1, M2 (medium), or S (small). Press the Set button.
4. Use the right or left arrows to select superfine (quadrant with S), fine (quadrant), or normal (stairsteps). Press the Set button.
5. Press the Func button to exit.

Large/superfine images will take up the most space on the memory card. Small/normal images will take the least, but the picture quality will be less if you're printing the pictures.

There is a table at this link (scroll down) to show you how many images will fit on a memory card at different settings.

My images save at sizes of 3-4 MB!!! how can i get them to be (way) smaller files??? powershot SD790is digital elph


Your solutions are varied, but the results will be (mostly) the same. Option 1: Lower the resolution and quality settings on your camera. If you are seeing 3-4 MB per photo, then they are probably at least 4000 pixels wide, and your file size will be larger to reflect that. If you set the camera to a lower quality and or resolution, you will for sure save disk space. Consequently, you will also lose image quality. If you are mainly archiving the photos for the purpose of viewing them online, on your PC, or through a digital picture frame, this is no big deal. If you intend to print, especially a large print, you will see pixelation occur in the print. This will take smooth parts of your picture and chunk colors together in a "boxy" appearance. Your second option, is to import your photos in a program like Google Picasa or many other free options, and then convert your image to a compressed format, such as a compressed JPEG or PNG file. PNG files are usually the better choice for file size, but not every devices (frames, TVs, etc.) recognize PNG files. So you may want to stick with JPEG depending on your use for your photos. Additionally, you can lower the resolution of hi-res photos within Picasa (or its alternatives) after importing the photos. This is the preferred route as you can take every photo like you want to print it as a poster, and then choose which photos to drop the resolution. This gives you the safety of shooting each picture as if you want to keep the quality and then later decide which are worth archiving at what resolution. Remember, the detail in a photo also reflects upon its size, not just resolution, if you take one 12 MP picture of the sky and another of a bunch of different color balloons, the balloon will have more color data and thus a higher file size.

Adjusting Pictures Resolution


you use the function button while in camera mode and scroll to the image size then turn the function dial to change it. you should consider taking your photos on the higest resolution, however, because SD cards are very cheap and you can get 8GB cards for under $40. Your camera came with a 32MB card which is tiny--you should throw it away. 8GB will store hundreds of 9 megapixel photos--i recommend having at least two SD cards. i hope this helps.

Bad image


This is  a CCD sensor problem and you will have to have it replaced by Canon. You are in luck, though, because Canon will repair this fault free of charge ( see enclosed pic of a ccd sensor from a Canon camera ).9336fd3.jpg
