Thread: 8R printing

  1. #1

    Default 8R printing

    Anyway to preserv as much as possible from 3:2 images taken by DSLR to 8R printing ? As print out will be crop if using original file without any post processing in PS.

    Why not save the trouble and print S8R instead, which is 3:2 ratio?

    For some photo contest, they only accept 8R. Not S8R.

    I believe most contests accept 8R or S8R.
    Do read the rules & regulations again carefully. Some will show "...minimum size of 8R is accepted..." Which means S8R size is also accepted.

    Too bad I already sent out the pic for contest. Spent 20++ for this experience.

    For an uncropped 8x10 Just go in photoshop and---

    Image--> Image Size Set the largest dimension to 10.
    Image--> Canvas Size then make the smallest dimension 8.

    That will give you a white border, but wont crop. Otherwise just do 8x12 like suggested.

    Oh yeah, did you forget to post your picture you submitted?
