Default Rebels resolution in inches?

The rebel has 3 resolution settings small (1535x1024)medium(2048x1360)large(3072x2048)

What size print outs can you get from each setting in inches .eg 6x4,5x7

Default print size

For most printers figure on 300DPI (no this is not the same as your inkjet DPI) . The printers I use at costco need a 320 DPI resolution to get the most out of them . Any way take the image size in pixels and devide it by the 300 or 320 that will give you your print size in inches . I know the hew Hi Ti printers use 400 DPI.

Depending on the subject matter, the printer and how picky you are about quality. I've seen print outs all the way down to about 120 pixels per inch and they've looked fairly good... but would you have like them? I don't know.

That has worked a few times for me, but often I use around 180 or 200.

I've read others here use 120 or so all the time and are happy. This is such a personal question it's difficult to state facts (although ebourlet did, by specifying what some printers like, which is a good thing to know) but most of what you'll here will be opinion ("I print at XXX and it looks great".)
