The 3:2 is the aspect ratio (width-to-height ratio) of the image. IIRC the 3:2 happens to be the ratio of a 4x6 print. Which should mean you don't have to crop your pictures when you make 4x6's.

Compression = Shrinking picture size

They do this by throwing away parts of the picture. (Hopefully one's you don't notice.) I think the folks here will generally say less is better in this area.

Fine Compression = not much at all = 'a good thing'
A better thing would be 'RAW' which is as it sounds the picture data raw from the camera without much if any fiddling.

So for the most part you want 'fine' compression, and the biggest picture size you can take. Your pic's will be bigger. so tis recommended to get a big memory card.

Hope it helps!
