    Not to me, but if you're concerned, there are medications advertised on television which are supposed to hel...

    Oh, sorry, I see what you mean...

    Unless there's a specific request, I generally do 4x6 and 5x7, but sometimes an image will only suit a particular size crop, so go with that.

    I do 4 x 6. If they want to order prints from me, I show them about a dozen where I do a different size crop and do extra PP on the print. Then I tell them that ALL prints ordered from me will be given that extra PP and a professional eye for the crop whereas if they crop it themselves at wally world, they wont get the same quality as they would from me.

    Thread moved. re: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=95620

    I keep all the images in the native format, 2:3 (4x6), even when I crop. When I sell the files to the client, I usually keep extra space so that they can be cropped to other ratios. When I make 4x6 prints for them, I will often crop some of them to look better at that ratio.
