Always press the shutter button halfway down to focus, then all the way down to take the picture.
The button in the center of the vertical column sets image size and quality.
Image size can be set to full, half or small. The bigger the size, the more pixels, or space the photo will take up.
Image quality can be adjusted. To fine, normal or basic.
Fine takes up more memory space but is a higher quality than normal or basic.
For our purposes, the center setting is perfect.
