    Digital Camera - Size Setting for Best Photo Printout
    Goal: Trying to figure out which setting I should have the digital camera set to - printing out a 4x6 photo at best quality.

    Users have the option to take a photo at:

    2272 x 1704 Super-Fine JPEG
    2272 x 1704 Fine JPEG
    2272 x 1704 Normal JPEG
    1600 x 1200 Super-Fine JPEG
    1024 x 768 Super-Fine JPEG


    Is 1024 x 768 fine for a 4x6 photo printout (main concern)?
    I have no clue. :confused: Or should I go with the 2272 x 1704 Super-Fine?

    Going to shoot photos and print out at Walmart. Would be aweful to see a 'Kodak-Moment' photo that does not come out to well.

    Specs:
    20" iMac C2D 2.16ghz, 13" MacBook 2.0ghz, 60gb iPod vid, 1gb nano
    1800 x 1200 is considered the minimum resolution for a quality 4x6

    I always go with a step above the standard quality on my digital cameras

    I've heard a 1.2 meg camera is fine for printing a 4x6 photos.
    I'd stick with 1600x1200. Thanks.

    Specs:
    2 x 3.0GHz Quad-Core, 6GB OS X 10.6.8 | 15in MacBook Pro 2.2GHz OS X 10.6.8 | 64GB iPad 2 WiFi
    Cool
    Do a test. Shoot a test image at each resolution. Document the facts of each image. Take it in and get some prints. Then evaluate the results. Once this is done, you s hould be ready for the Kodak moments and not worried about a thing.
