My question is, how can I figure out how to crop it down to the perfect size? If I use the crop tool in photoshop and set the width to 6inches and the height to 4inches, is that enough? This was my original plan.
Then, I saw that 1600x1200 photos would need to be cropped too. One of my digital camera's takes pictures at 1600x1200, so I thought this would be the standard size of 6x4 prints - but it looks like even those should be cropped according to the crop tool on photoshop, which when set to 6x4 takes a 1600x1200 photo down to 1600x1067. Is this correct?
This may sound kind of confusing, but I hope someone can help me. I just want to know how to crop my photos properly in order to get good looking prints - is the photoshop crop tool okay? I don't want to spend time cropping them, have them printed and end up with crappy stretched photos.
