Default Cropping Help - I get loss of resolution!

Hi Everyone,
I am using Photoshop 6.01 and am mostly making 4x6 boarderless photos. The problem is when I look at my file at 100% there is great detail. I'm shooting at 2272 x 1704 Superfine resolution JPG. It's a Cannon S400.

When I use Photoshop, which is new to me, I look at the photo and hold down the shift key which allows for me to maintain the aspect ratio set above in the little boxes: 4"x6"

Every time I crop an image I end up with terrible resolution. What am I doing wrong? I only have a 3x Optical Zoom and will need to be cropping images to make sections larger on printouts.

Any suggestions anyone?

Thanks,
Matt

Nothing, that's what happens. You can only blow-up a digital image so much before something gives.

Try Genuine Fractals to crop with. It's a PS plug-in and works much better than the built in ones.

Thanks Steve,
I appreciate your kind comments. I missed it the first time I read your response, I'll look into the Fractal plug in.

You are wrong, in Photoshop >Image>Size uncheck resample and change resolution to 300ppi , then if you want to change size leave the resample unchecked and check the constrain proportions box, to change size just enter a new size in either the heigh or width side the other wil be sized to fit .
