Default picture manager - how to set photo at 4 x 6 for developing

need help setting up digital photos for developing.
seems to me the pictures are square format, and when you take them to get
developed they get cut off part of the picture , to fit 4 x 6 size.
any suggestions how to set pitures up to fit 4 x 6
can ms office picture manager do it - or what is another option
thanks

Crop them yourself to a multiple of 2x3 to make sure what is important
to you is what is in the picture. in other words crop to say 400x600
pixels or 600x900 or whatever. The long side will be 1 and 1/2 times the
short side.

Will that size still produce good clarity quality?
I thought the pictures had to be around the size 2500 x 1700
It's confusing for someone new at this.
Is there a website that explains this to newbies?

but that info helps
thanks

Two thirds of 2500 pixels is closer to 1667 pixels than 1700. But using
Picture Manager, you needn't bother with the math:
Edit Pictures... Crop Aspect Ratio: 4 x 6.

All the pixels in the world won't "fix" the effects from a camera with a
cheap lens or out of focus shot. Likewise the "digital zoom" is only
cropping the picture in the camera and using more pixels. I good picture
at 2500x1700 should be good for an 8x10. As far as digital photography,
the web is awash with good info. Start your search at www.google.com
using "beginner digital photography" and pick likely sites.
