Less is More


Your camera automatically reduces the size of the image files by compressing them to fit more on the memory card. The amount of compression is the second important setting on your camera because it affects image quality—and less is more!


Click on the video (above) to watch the lesson. Open the Lesson Guide (button below) for a transcript of the video. It has space to make notes and a worksheet if you download and print a copy.

The short worksheet at the end of the Lesson Guide will help you with setting the image quality on your camera. Complete the worksheet with the camera and manual in front of you.

Open the forum discussion (button below) and reply with your questions about image quality. If you’re having trouble setting the image quality on your camera, reply in the forum with the camera model and describe the problem. One of your fellow students or I will try to assist you. I encourage you to reply with any other questions or comments about the lesson, too.
