What Does "Quality optimisation" Mean on a S23 Samsung Camera?

I suppose it should be self-explanatory, but when I Google these words, it doesn't help. This is under the 'Advanced intelligence options' section of the S23 camera. The 'Scene optimiser' option is obvious, but what about this button? It includes 'Maximum', 'Medium', and 'Minimum' options.

The advanced Intelligence options in the Camera AI  allow users to optimise image quality  or prioritise faster shutter speed. in essence  it is the degree of Artificial Intelligence utilised in photo processing.

This article  from one of our photo experts  explains the various options in detail https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/photography-talk/how-to-set-the-camera/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

Thanks James. However, that's a bit technical. How does it affect downloaded photos? And how is it different to the 'Scene optimiser' option just below it?

@Paul Murphy; Scene optimiser effects are applied automatically (when the camera recognises a subject or scene, an icon will appear on the screen and the optimised colour will be applied automatically), whereas the Quality optimisation feature will kick in after the photo has been taken. In both instances, this will only affect images that are captured on the phone itself, and not downloaded photos from an external source.

Thanks Andrew. I may be a bit slow on the uptake here. However,  that makes it seem as if when If use the 'Quality optimisation' option, say, two hours after taking the photo, then the photos still on my phone will be changed in accordance with that later selection.  That would be a kind of personal editing done on the phone itself? Unless you mean something else by the words  "Quality optimisation feature will kick in after the photo has been taken". .. In nay case, I'm still not sure how it affects the photos in an everyday non-technical sense.

@Paul Murphy: You don't need to worry about Quality optimisation affecting photos that have already been taken. The optimisation feature, if set to 'Maximum' or 'Medium' will only affect an image immediately after it has been taken. In some instances, depending on the resolution of the image, if you swipe from the top of the screen to the bottom then you will see a notification advising you that optimisation is currently taking place.
