    Default resizing for sharing and printing

    Hi to all of you,
    I took some pics in school functions, and then need to share it to friends and teachers.
    1.What is the best smallest size and resolution for sharing yet still printable at least on 4 R? Been searching old threads but none gave the information that I need.
    2. Any fast track to do it for a batch of pics?
    Thank you very much for your help.

    1. 1800 x 1200 pixels for a very good 4" x 6" print
    2. record an action in PS and do a batch process

    Thanks Ortega, that was fast! Appreciate your help.
    The main problem is our campus email system only allowed 2MB attachment
    My cam is FZ 20 ~ 5MP, with some basic retouching the file size could be blown out even if it is in JPG... Would you like to elaborate more?

    for a 4" x 6" print at 300dpi your image needs to be recropped into 1800 pixels x 1200 pixels
    and then save-as a new jpg file with compression set to about 6.

    For PS action read up on PS online help
    for batch process as well
