I'm an enthusiastic amateur or a semi-pro photographer, depending on mood and day of the week. :)

Matt: You're absolutely right, "it doesn't really matter". Nowhere do I say that it does. It's a minor issue of convenience for the person setting the page who asked you for a 6x4" image at 300dpi, that's all. I've tried to explain that as clearly and factually as possible. Any answer will be misread by a person who skims it, but the number of upvotes indicates plenty of people have found it helpful. Michael: Thanks for your comments.

comment Where can I buy high quality greetings cards blanks in the UK?
This question seems perfectly reasonable to me. I thought we'd sorted the whole "country = too localised?" thing many times before, e.g. photo.stackexchange.com/questions/14353/….

comment What is a Canon Digisuper lens and why is it $200,000+?
"Canon's Tripple Digit Zoom Lens with Auto Focus Function" - all that money on a lens and they still can't spell "triple". :)
