Restores the last image format to be stored on disk.
Format: RESOLUTION <channel> <x-res> <y-res>
Channel: The name of the data-acquisition channel.
X-res: The resolution factor in : 1, 2, 4 or 8.
Y-res: The resolution factor in : 1, 2, 4 or 8.
Examples: resolution blue 8 2
Comments: The resolution factors determine how finely photon events are centroided and binned in the IPCS. A factor of one implies binning over the full width of the CCD-camera pixel in the IPCS. A factor of 8, the maximum possible, implies that there are 8 output pixels across each CCD pixel. The factors may be different on each axis. Resolution has no meaning (and would be rejected) for a channel using a CCD: use bin instead. Resolution sets the DICI window to its maximum size.
