    If they are important shots where you used the full area of the pic, just crop it yourself using PS at 4:3 ratio, assuming you are printing 4R. If you are lazy to crop, just ask the printer to print full print, but that will leave you with 2 borders at the shots ends.

    sha0ye is new member, dun think he/she knows that it was asked countless times.

    I thought we could be nicer to newbies of CS. Might be better if can suggest the "search" in a nicer way.

    Jus my thoughts

    Tell the shop you want to "Fit-In". But if the image has a different aspect ratio from the print size, then you will get some white borders. For me, I prefer the white borders to having parts of the image cropped off..

    I think basically is to have your images taken at 3:2 ratio. This way when developing 4R photos, the pics will not be cropped.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    Check your camera specs...

    If it's 3:2 ratio, ask the lab to print normal 4R (6" x 4")

    If it's 4:3 ratio, ask them to print digital 4R (6" x 4.5")
