set your pixel ratio to the largest setting, this means less pictures per memory, but higher picture quality. Also if possible adjust your iso to the highest setting, as well as the shutter speed, having both of these settings set to the highest point will require more light for picture taking, however will result in the highest quality image.
A camera raw image file contains minimally processed data from the camera.This is mostly used for professionals who want the absolute highest quality from their photos. However, RAW photos are very very large in file size, and will fill up your memory card quickly. I recommend shooting in the highest quality JPEG file format.This will give you great looking photos, but with a more manageable file size. Hope this helps! And if it did, feel free to rate me :)
Since you did not state your camera make/model, it is still safe to say that you would need to go into the menu and change the image quality to "large". Typically a JPG if you are not familiar with "RAW" (i.e., if your camera will shoot RAW). JPG is the easiest. The larger the image the higher the resolution. This allows more information to be in your image file. Prints made from larger images will look better.
The details for each record mode are as follows:
RAW: RAW data is unprocessed image data in its original state to which white balance, sharpness, contrast, color conversion and other processes have not been applied. CAMEDIA Master can be used to display RAW data and save it in other image formats. A RAW plug-in is also available for Adobe Photoshop which also provides the ability to process images in 32-bit color depth.
TIFF: This is the highest-quality mode. images are saved as uncompressed data, which is the best for printing or image processing on a computer.
SHQ: This is a high quality mode using the JPEG format. Because the compression rate is very low, high quality images can be stored.
HQ: This is a high quality mode using JPEG format, with medium compression. Because the compression rate is higher than SHQ, file sizes are smaller. More images can be saved to a card. The file size can be changed in the 3:2 or Enlarge size mode as well as SHQ.
3:2 Mode: Ordinarily the image aspect ratio is set to 4:3. Due to change the ratio to 3:2, the picture size becomes 2592 x 1728 so that the image can be printed without losing the image borders at a photo lab. 3:2 can be set in the TIFF, SHQ, or HQ mode.
SQ1: SQ1 uses the highest compression for resolutions greater than 1600 x 1200. You can choose high compression to reduce noise or normal compression to save more images.
SQ2: SQ2 uses the highest compression for resolutions less than 1600 x 1200. You can choose high compression to reduce noise or normal compression to save more images.
