    if you want your images to be printed in regular 4R size, it would be good to crop your images to 3:2 ratio first.

    generally, keep tp 72dpi, and try to keep the image size down to a acceptable size. re-size the really big ones to like mabbe 600x400 or smaller.

    remember, not everyone has broadband... have a thought for those on dial-up...

    Actually, the 72dpi thing is a misnomer. Once you specify image size in pixels, the dpi value is redundant. A file at 600 x 400 x 300dpi will be the same size as one at 600 x 400 x 72dpi. You only need to conern yourself with the dpi/ppi when printing or scanning.

    btw, i suppose 3:2 ratio is height:width, meaning that the images must be in potrait orientation; or it doesn't really matter?

    do the division yourself 1600/1200 = 4/3, definitely not 3:2.
