Hmm is that when you resize the image? I leave that blank usually and only select 300 ppi for resolution. If I need to do it that way.. can you guide me in exactly what I need to do .. which options I need to pick? The album I am creating will be a 12 by 12.

I think the pictures my photographer gave me are 2000 X 3000 with 300 ppi. I could be wrong.. not in front of my computer.

2000X3000 is roughly an 8x10 size image.

Very roughly.  8x10 at 300dpi would be 2400x3000.  This is 6 2/3 x 10.  You should still be able to get reasonable prints but maybe you could ask your photographer to give you non-resampled images.  No camera puts out exactly 2000x3000.

A 12X12 album when open is 24 inches long, neasrly 2.5 times larger than the image files you have. As such, any images that are stretched across an entire spread are going to have to be upsampled to fill the space adequately. The quality of that process is dependent on many factors. I would personally prefer to upsample the images manually in PS before letting another program do it automatically.
