    Wink please advice. thanks

    hi everyone. i have been asked to take some portraits for an organisation chart. the photos will have to be printed 5cm by 7.5cm. i am using a DSLR.
    1) do i need to crop the photos to 2:3 (length:height), or isit already done by the camera ?

    2) do i have to resize to the size i want on PS to print or can the photolab do it ?

    3) how much will each print cost ?

    thanks very much.
    cheers !

    1) Unless you're using Olympus DSLRs, the other DSLRs are already producing pics in 2:3 ratio.

    2) Don't need.

    3) ~30-50 cents.

    Just tell the photo lab people what you want and let them do their work.

    Click on the crop tool and type in the dimensions that you need (5cm x 6.5cm)
    and the resolution (300dpi)
