    Default Photo Printing Doubt

    Hi all,
    Sorry for my newbie question hor

    If I crop my photo after some touch up processes, then can I still send to photo printing centre to print out the standard 3R or 4R size photo har... becos my cropping might already alter the image size lor...

    Asking this as I have taken some photo for my school project, and I tried to crop and touch up the photo, now I need to print it out as 4R photo, could it still be done at the photo printing centre?

    Thanks in advance

    Just make sure that you keep the ratio of 4:3 when you do the cropping and not anyhow crop next time. Then you shouldn't run into too much problem.

    just know that 4R is 3:2 ratio. make sure after cropping, it is in that ratio and you'll be fine. as for no. of pixels(resolution) needed, try to have 300dpi. hence final image is recommended to have 1800 by 1200 pixels.]

    *edit: 4R is 6" by 4"*

    In Photoshop, press c (for crop tool. Or find it with an icon which looks like a overlapping box on the left.)

    The top would have height, length and resolution.

    Enter 300 for resolution (Do this first)
    Then enter 4" and 6" respectively into the length / width.

    In the middle is a button for you to switch the value in case you need to switch between potrait and landscape.


    PS: What did I tell you about going to bed?
