I have (3) questions (my camera is an Olympus E-420). (1) To get the best possible results for editing and getting the clearest portraits is it better to set your camera on RAW, SF,LN,MN, or SN? (2) What should I keep my resolution on for Portraits (1600 or higher)? (3) After editing in LR3 I export to a CD and take to a local place to have them developed, My edits are not fitting into a 4x6 size frame is there a way to export my pictures so that I don't have this problem. Need help...

Hi Amy,

1. Raw.
2. When you're shooting raw, you don't get a choice of resolutions, the camera automatically saves at the full native resolution of the sensor.
3. Yes. In the Develop module, enter Crop mode (go to the Tools menu and select Crop). Then in the Crop panel (at the right hand side of the screen, under the Histogram) click the lock button to lock the aspect ratio. From the pop-up menu next to the lock button, select "2x3 / 4x6".
