Hi Juliana, 

Not sure if you figured it out already. But smaller resolution means
better quality and larger file sizes. A resolution of 0.05 degrees means
that each pixel is 0.05 degrees in width and height. Gradually make this
value smaller until you are satisfied and still works. At some point the
WMS may refuse to server or your file will get too big. 

About projection: it is generally not advised to work with EPSG:4326
projection. Depending on the area you work with, I would switch to a
meter based projection, such as UTM zones. 

Greetings, 

Andreas
