My Epson R800 should be here in a couple of days. What is the best way to print photos on the 4x6 epson paper? I have photoshop if I need to use it to resize. Thanks!!!

You could use a special program for printing passport photos. It has presets for passport photo size and can print on special sized paper too.

It's in:

The camera you have is significant. If you have a DSLR you can just print them directly as most are in the 3:2 format for a 4 X 6. If it doesn't need cropping just go to Image>Image size and set 4 X 6 in the document size with "constrain proportions" checked and "resample image" not checked.

If you have a digicam with a 4:3 ratio format you have to crop. Open the photo in Photoshop and select the crop tool. Put "6 in" in the width and "4 in" in the height (or the other way round) with nothing in the resolution box. Photoshop will constrain the crop to the right proportions and it will print at 4 X 6. It will use all of your pixels if you don't put anything in the resolution box.
