I have been doing some work lately that involves more than taking a picture. After that image is captured, processed, and ready to print, how do you go about size and framing? My Canon captures in 11.109 by 7.406 if I remeber correctly. Obviously this can be resized and/or cropped, but is that necessary? I recently printed out a friend's senior portrait, to an 8 by 12 Matte print. That required some cropping from the uploader I used. (the printing shop I usually use, has an at home image uploader, where you can choose sizes and crop to fit). I go to Michael's to find a frame, and they have nothing. I ended up making a custom frame. So my question is, how do you acoid this. Do you really need to allow extra cropping space for any picture that may be resized or framed? And then crop every image to the size or ratio you want printed? Small print standards are 4 by 6s, which will fit the original image size, but anything larger is a totally different size ratio. I guess I'm just looking for an easier way around this. Any tips? My question in a nutshell: What is the best way to crop or resize images to fit frames or prints, without taking every photo with extra space for cropping.
