    I'm experimenting with different resolutions on my Canon A520 with a 512 mb
    I took 4 indoor shots at different resolutions, of the same object from the
    same distance and had 4x6 prints made.
    Glancing at the pictures, I cannot tell the difference between 2272x1704 and
    1600x1200 at fine or superfine modes.

    If I look really,really close, I would have to say the 1600x1200 print is
    slightly sharper than the 2272x1704 print.

    I would have expected this to be the other way around.

    I'm guessing that the 2272x1704 shot was altered by the photofinisher to fit
    on the 4x6 print and changed the quality. But the 1600x1200 shot did not
    have to be altered so the quality is better.

    Am I right or wrong?
