    I took some pictures for a friend, and edited them in CS4. what is the best image size to save them at so I can give them to her on a CD? I use a Canon EOS 40 D, and set all of my photos to Large when I shoot. I am not sure what size she would like to print of each photo (if any). Thank you in advance for your responses.

    My answer to this would be to save the photos as normal size or the largest size (8x10) and the image quality will be there if a smaller photo is wanted.

    You need to ask her... Say, if she wants a 5x7 and 8x10 of the same photo, it will need to be cropped to different aspect ratios and resized to the appropriate dpi for optimal printing.
