    3Mp can easily do 8R.

    3mp can easily do 10x15 if the image is good. 2mp can already do 8R.

    6R would be a good size to mount on A4 paper, giving a nice border all around.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong... I think only 4R, S8R and S10R give 3 x 2 ratio, while the rest will give 4 x 3 ratio... U might like to consider this cos' cropping will be done on those with 4 x 3 sizes... (unless your photos are already in 4 x 3 ratios)...

    Just my 2 cents worth...

    4R = 4" x 6"
    5R = 5" x 7"

    clearly, 5R does NOT give 4:3 aspect ratio.

    suggest 4R if u got tons of shots to print out..then accompany with 5R or 6R for those "more" significant shots.
