I'm sure I used to know this, but all of a sudden I'm having trouble cropping.
I want to crop a photo to 4x6. So, I do that, but the result comes out way huge!

After much frustration and looking at the toolbar to see what's wrong, I noticed the resolution was blank. Oh, I remember now! But, what resolution should it be set to? I tried 700, but the result came out tiny. Then I tried 500, and that was closer to what I wanted, but still not right. I'm sure one of you can tell me what the resolution should be and I will be able to get the results I'm looking for.

The standard resolution for digital scrapbooking is 300dpi. Isn't that the pits when you know you used to know something but can't remember now? Luckily this is a great place to ask questions! :)

What program are you using?

And it will matter what the resolution of your original image is. If that is 72 and you try to crop to 300 or more, your image will be very tiny. If your original image is already 300 and you do a crop with that same resolution, your final image should look as you expect.
