Hi, After some analysis I had settled down on purchasing a Canon s60. My preferred photo size is a 4x6. Would an S60 be able to capture and print in 4x6 mode (it captures only in 2592x1944, 1600x1200, 1024x768 and 640x480)? I was told to assume a rate of 300 ppi which would put the closest size of 1600x1200 at 5.25"x4". Or I would have to take a larger image and edit with s/w to 'extract' a 4x6. Am I misunderstanding something?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Most digital cameras record in a width/height ratio of 1.33 which is equal to most computer screens. If you want to print to a different ratio, such as 6/4 = 1.5, then you will typically crop the image with software. Note that film negatives had the same "problem" when printing to paper of dissimilar ratios.

I find using the "Easy Photo Print" software that comes with the Canon digital cameras one of the easiest ways to get 4x6 prints. It's not the greatest s/w but it will allow you crop the full sized image to a manageable 4x6 size as long as there is some extra space at the top or bottom of the image. And you can print multiple images and/or multiple copies of images at the same time.
