Welcome to Apple Discussions Rain,
TD is entirely correct. iPhoto does not ask you what quality image you want to store your file as. It just copies what is on your camera and shows it to you.
There is an option to store your RAW files as JPEG / TIFF in iPhoto > Preferences > Advanced but you would have gone in here by hand. Unless you are shooting RAW and have a reason to change this, there is no reason to make changes here.
You might be thinking of iMovie. iMovie at first import does ask you what size file you want to store. This setting is found in iMovie > Preferences > Video > Import HD video as:
If you think the quality of an image is low (blurry / grainy) try dragging one out to the desktop of your computer and opening it up with Preview (double-click). How does it look here?
