like when you take digital to pics to walgreens?
usually 300 dpi is the max for places like that
well, most of my pics are 7mp, but I want to resize them down to fit more on a flash drive, but I dont want to shrink them too much and then they come out shitty
when resizing them like that, it will depend a lot on how you resize them and what program you use to do the resizing.
well, most of them are just bar pics and my gf with her friends, that kind of stuff, she just wants to get them printed out to cut them to scrapbook
so I would probably just get all the ones she wants into a folder and use the powertoy resizer on them, down to whatever size will be decent enough to not make the pics look like a game of tetris when they done at the photo place
the powertoy resizer is shit. i don't even really like to use it for the web, let alone for print. if i'm going to resize a batch like that i'll use lightroom or acdsee.
ACDsee... Wow I havent heard about that program in years... it work well for resizing?
just forget about resizing them and just upload them to walgreens or costco or something.
you can upload and order online and pickup in-store in about an hour.
depending on your upload speed, it might still be a good idea to resize them before uploading.
and there are newer versions of acdsee that work great for doing batch resizing. you can do some basic editing with the program, but the only thing i really use it for is batch resizing or renaming.
For strictly 4"x6" prints, you don't need more than 4 megapixels. Hell, even a 3mp will do.
normally we recommend on 2-3mp camera not to use the lower resolution on the camera, to make sure you do not get any pixelation on the images you might want to make sure the image size and quality are set higher. Normally its when your trying to blow them up to 8x10 which might be pushing things on the lower scale MP.
