ratio should be 3:2 since 4R is 6 inch by 4 inch.

At least 600 x 400 pixels for acceptable quality. For best quality, no more than 1800 x 1200 is required. Going beyond that will not give an increase in quality.

Take the 6 by 4:

6 x 300ppi = 1800
4 x 300ppi = 1200

So you need roughly the above size for a 4R picture (tat's what I was told) so not too sure on this....

Sounds logical.

1800 x 1200 is even sufficient to print a pretty good 8x12. The fact is that you don't really need 300ppi for a good picture. 150-200ppi can produce very good results if you start off with a good image.
