    I am going to get some prints made 4x6 for my mom from our trip out west this summer. Do I keep keep the ratio 2:3, crop, export, and print?

    If your files are already 2x3 ratio... that equals 4x6 ratio, so you should be good to go with printing and keep basically the same 'crop' you have. The only thing is that when printing, even at the same ratio, sometimes there is a slight margin all the way around that gets "trimmed" when printed. But it's generally minor and not much of a factor.
