    from 220 to 300dpi,some claim 400dpi

    inkjet dpi is diff from lab printer becoz they are using diff technology,a 1440 or 2880dpi inket printer resolution is about 100-400dpi

    So, is it the reason why the 4R photo prints of 3MP and 6/8MP have not much differences?

    When 3MP (2048x1536) printed in 4R (6'x4'), 2048/6=341 ppi, that's pushing the printing machine's resolution limit. Can I say that 6/8MP when printed in 4R are overkill, unless they use higher resolution printing machines??

    u only squeeze 1200x1800 onto a 4x6"

    our eyes can only "see" up to 300dpi or a bit more,no point making a higher res machine..
