    Must consider ratio and resolution or not?

    try to keep to a minimum of 200 dpi for each dimension.

    i'm referring to some information posted in http://www.canon.com.sg/digitalcamer...technology.pdf

    binbeto taught me to divide by 3 and X2 using the longer side as the factor!!!

    Thanks binbeto!!!

    ie:
    Pixels Dimensions

    2048 width

    2048/3 *2 ~ 1366

    so crop pic to 2048 X 1366 and that shd do.

    er... that's simple mathematics, you just need to watch out what size you're printing in. for 5R (5" x 7") your ratio is 5:7... simple, isn't it?...

    6R is 6" x 8" ==> 6:8 ==> 3:4
    8R is 8" by 10" => 8:10 ==> 4:5
