Elph 330/Ixus 255 - Optimum Settings?

Hello all,

Just purchased the Elph 330 and so far, I'm quite happy with it.  I'm just wondering if anyone has advice on tweaking the settings in Program mode.  As I understand it, on this camera P is basically Smart Auto with the ability to adjust the individual settings, is that correct?

At this point I've upped the sharpness to +1, as the camera seems very good on noise and can probably take that, and changed the compression to superfine (which it seems is only available in Program mode).  It certainly increases the file size rather dramatically - I'm wondering if I'll see enough of a difference to justify that.

I'm certainly not a particularly experienced photographer so I'm really just looking to get Program tweaked optimally and use that 95% of the time.  Thanks in advance for your advice.
