resolution for print - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I download images from my Canon Powershot A70 to my computer. I shoot at the largest file size for maximum resolution (approx. 2000 X 1500), but when I reduce the size of the image to 6 X 4.5", the resolution shown in Photoshop Elements is much smaller (433 X 324) and the pixel count is 72 ppi. I increase the pixel count to 300 ppi, which Photoshop tells me raises the size of the file to 1800 X 1350, but when I print the images using the two different resolution specs, I see no difference....

    Default Re: resolution for print

    David, if you're changing dimensions for printing, you want to go into
    Image>Resize>Image Size and remove the checkmark from the box marked
    Resample. Then when you change doent size (linear dimensions), you'll
    see that your image size (pixel dimensions) remains at your original size
    and the resolution (pixels per inch) gets up well into the range where your
    printed photo will not show any pixellation (a 2000x1500 pixels image will
    give you 333 ppi at 4.5x6 inches, well over the threshhold used by most for
    prints).

    When you first set size in inches, make sure Resample is OFF.
