I have been trying to use photoshop elements to print out photos for a wedding album. I want the photos to come out at specific sizes such as 8.5 x 11. Or I may want to be able to fit a specific number of photos on 1 8.5 x 11 document. When I resize the photos using photoshop (after I have downloaded them from Snapfish at high resolution) they do not print out at a good quality and have that "blocky" or fuzzy look or the color is off. However, when I use my Ipad and export them from photogene to print them they print out beautifully even at the 8.5 x 11 size. I would really like to be able to learn to use photoshop and I don't know what I am doing wrong within that program!

What is your resolution set to? For print it needs to be 300 dpi.

Canon T1i
EF 50mm f/1.8II
EFS 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6
EFS 18-55mm

If you are using the crop tool, make sure the dpi is set to 300.
If you are copy/pasting make sure both documents are sized to 300 dpi.

If you are downloading from snapfish, there might be some compression issues from snapfish.
