I'm kind of new to the digital camera craze. I have an Olympus C3040 camera (3.34). I use iPhoto to store my photos. I use the SHQ or HQ settings (2048x1536). If I print one of the photos from iPhoto it comes out real nice. (I have a Stylus 860 printer...not so new 1440x720.) If I open the same photo in Photoshop and go to Image>Image Size, it says it is 72 dpi. I change the print size to 4x6, and print. The photo comes out not as good. I change the dpi to 300, print again and still not as good as iPhoto. Text is MUCH clearer and the color seems to be nicer in iPhoto. What would be the reasoning for this? And for a printer with my resolution what should I be setting my images to?
