Hi everyone,
I do not have a label for these functions at the moment. I only have a 
hunch about why the existing labels feel confusing, beside the reasons 
already mentioned in the thread...

The part of the reason is that they are named after the presumption what 
the user wants them for (web, print).
I see from the discussion that this presumption is misleading.

So, the new label should not presume anything, but rather tell the user 
the actual properties of the result. An additional tip or an explanation 
could explain the settings in more detail or mention the the presumed 
purpose of this setting.
