With the camera's 16.0 Megapixels of resolution, your images are rich and clear, with textures and tiny details faithfully reproduced even at the long end of the 5x Optical Zoom. This high level of resolution is ideal for creating the largest prints, and allows you the flexibility to blow up and crop any section of an image to express your creativity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor powers the camera's advanced systems and features, ensuring fast, reliable performance with low battery consumption.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon DIGIC Image Processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, DIGIC processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, HD video and Face Detection Self-timer.
The fact that it doesn't come with an interface cable is insane.

Common sense will prevail.....
This camera is just a basic camera you can't expect much for the price. Settings are basic. As far as being able to adjust the size of the photo, use a picture software program if you need to change the size. It is always best to take the best picture possible and then resize afterwards. That way one can make large prints if you get a great shot. Now down loading pictures with any camera it is always faster to pull the card and download directly to your computer. Data cables are slow and not worth the time it takes to transfer from camera to the computer. With that said this camera is what it is point and shoot grab them on the fly and that is what I needed for work and quick trips. If you are looking for a camera with multiple features then look in a higher price range don't waste your time and money with this camera.

one major flaw
I owned this camera for one week and returned it because it was so difficult to see through the viewfinder outdoors.
I then bought a Canon A1400 because it has an optical viewfinder but haven't used it yet.
