    Hi!

    I have got a question concerning the size of my photos. My pictures have got a ratio of 4:3 (width:height). I would like to let them print out. In shops they only print in 9x13, 10x15 or 13x18cm which hasn't got the ratio 4:3. So I have to change the ratio of of the width/height of my photos so that I can aviod a white stripe on the border of the printed photos. That is why I would like to ask you to tell me the exact size of the photos they make in shops as I think the sizes are not exactly 9x13, 10x15 and 13x18cm. Could you give me the exact size of the 3 sizes with 2 decimal places? I expect 13x18 is 13,70x18,70 but I am not really sure.

    Thank you

    Welcome to the forum.

    It's probably best to ask the lab.

    Although we use the metric system here in Canada...print sizes are still in inches. Typical print sizes are exactly 4x6 inches, 5x7 inches, 8x10 in inches etc.
