I have heard that 300 image dots per inch guarantees photo quality but in reality most people are happy with half that. So, a 150 image dots per printed inch would give you a print size of 4"x3".

How do i go about printing different size of photos? they are all different sizes.

There are two basic ways to change the print size of your photos/documents.

1. You can go to file/print or you can press cntrl + p on your keyboard. the print menu will come up. go to properties/features. when it opens, look for resizing options. Under resizing options you will see print at actual size and scale to paper size. Select scale to paper size and list box will activated. Select the paper size to scale to from the list. If you are not familiar with paper sizes then this list introduction should do. The conventional official paper size is A4, half of that is A5, and half of that is A6.

2. other procedure is to right click on the photo/image and select print. a print wizard will pop up. it will ask you to chose size of images.

Good luck,

Converting large pictures files to smaller files

There are at least three alternatives.

1. Take smaller pictures. Your camera should have mulitple resolutions available, possibly including one as small as 640x480. Since you didn't specify the model of your camera, I can neither tell you the smallest available on your camera, nor how to set it.

2. Reduce the size on the camera. Again, I can't be too specific, but there probably is an item in the Playback menu to resize pictures.

3. Reduce the size on the computer. Just about any photo manipulation software (free or otherwise) on Windows or Mac will have the ability to reduce the size of a photo.

My preference is to do it on the computer, preferring to take my pics at the camera's best resolution. That way, if Bigfoot wanders by or a UFO lands outside, I'll have the best pics I can get.

How do i resize picture to square aspect ratio ? that is to resize 640x480 pixel to 600x600 pixel without stretching the photo or changing the aspect ratio

Well, you can't. The best you can do in a photo-editing program such as Photoshop Elements, is to crop the picture to square dimensions.

When I print pictures on the 3210 HP all-in-one, they come out very small even though I choose the 4X6 in paper size for the photo tray. I've tried everything I can, but the pictures keep printing wallet...

First thing that comes to mind is that a 4x6" print could print four wallet sized photos; be shure your are not printing more than one copy.

If you are trying to print more than one,it will print the actual picure you have and leave space for the number of other nonexistent prints selected.

See page 75 of the Manual. for directions on how to set up photo printing.

If you have photoshop, you can resize your documents using the menu item, Image / Image size, (Alt + i then i again)

Set the resolution to 300, then the document size width to 6 or 10 inches.

This will guarantee that your document is full size, (though the printer should be able to resize it to fit on the page no matter what).

Give these a try. It's really a shot in the dark, but it's my best guess.

Motorola z3 , cant recieve picture messages

any photo you take with your phone can be sent, the 1600x1200 pixel photos are the largest this phone will take which is a 2.0 megapixel photo, when you send these, your internet provider will require them to be a certain size, for instance tmobile will require that the photos are 640x480, so your phone will resize them, before they are sent via mms. If you send them by bluetooth directly to someone in range they will be the full 1600x1200 pixel size or what ever size you take. Recieved photos must be this size or less and JPG format for them to be viewable on your phone... if they are larger they will not be recieved , this is normal. due to size constraints.. let me know if you need any further help... :-)

How to reduce file size of photos for uploading onto a website

You should have a setting on the camera with the option of picture quality and size. Select fine quality rather than super fine. Then you should select the size,small,passport,medium,postcard,large and widescreen are the usual terms. But somewhere it should give the actual size in dimensions e.g 640x480. This is the size i would recomend for downloading. When you download the images from the memory card make sure that when you are asked Where you want to save them you also check which format they are being saved as!! Save them as a jpeg and not a bitmap image as this is the most common used by websites.If you need to resize an image you already have on the pc,click on it and then right click,you should then have an option to "open with" and you can choose from many different applications.I find the easiest and quickest is" Paint" It will then open in the paint programe, goto image at the top of the page and click resize. you can then choose what size you like. Bear in mind that resizing affects quality although you can adjust virtually anything with the paint software.

Printing photos

That is called pixelation and is usually the result of enlarging a photo, whether it be resized larger on the computer or printed at a larger size than it's original pixel dimensions.

Check your printer settings for a setting like "resize photo to fit paper" and uncheck it. Or print from a photo that is larger than the paper and it will reduce the size without any pixelation.

With digital photos you can always go smaller than the original, but rarely ever larger.

Logitech QuickCam Fusion

depending on the cameras largest pixel setting, which will either be 320x240 or 640x480, that is in real terms the size of a postage stamp in pixels. When saving 640x480, this is roughly the size for posting on the web, but if you need to make it larger you need to use a third party software similair to Paint Shop or Adobe to resize the actual pixels of the photo to 50% more for example by means of 'smart sizing'.
