    You can do a batch with PS. But then you cannot control how you want to crop the photo, example, 3:2 from top? left? rite? bottom or centre.

    The best way and the most painful way is to do it manually one by one.

    Unless your camera have the 3:2 setting, so next time you can pre set it to 3:2.

    I usually crop them one-by-one to retain the control of the cropping area. Instead of using PS, I use JPEGCrops (http://ekot.dk/programmer/JPEGCrops/) - very simple and effective tool for cropping before printing.

    HTH.

    if you want to crop, best to do it photo by photo.
    if you want to resize to 4R (4"x6"), u can use batch process in ps.
    do not confuse between crop and resize.

    photo editors like PS are the way to go. I would say no prog is smart enough to konw where to crop and where not to crop.

    there's no need to "resize" for prints.

    back in the film days u just send in your negatives or slides for prints, whether it's 3R or 10R. you don't resize your negatives or slides then. similarly, for digital, you could just send in your highest quality images for prints.

    cropping though is another issue. it is to ensure that you get the right details in the final prints.

    I think one resizes images for efficient storage.

    I.e.
    Backup all images to DVD or CD.
    Resize the less satisfactory images (70%?) to lower res
    Delete the high res copy
    Only reserve the high res "keepers" in harddisk for immediate reference.

    Some printing shops do 4:3 printing. Try Fotohub or KT Digital.
    As what a number of clubsnappers adviced, I, too, suggest you do the cnop manually.

    I believe you can actually do it in the File Browser. You need to have the cropping tool preset at 3:2 ratio (say at 300dpi) in both vertical and horizontal format.

    Then you select say the vertical format pictures and choose automate then crop using the correct tool preset.

    I think it should work as i read some where but maybe you can see whats the option for automate.
    :P
