    8R is 8" X 10" (2" edge is cropped)
    Super 8R (8Rs) is 8" X 12" (2:3)

    3:4 is our monitor ratio or compact digicam format...

Tried RGB twice at Winsland Hse...colors turn out disappointing leh....lab techinician din do auto adjustments... spoke to him and it seems he deems it coy policy NOT to touch up. but the print was too damn blueish leh....!? even amateur could tell it makes common sense to tweak rite? some more i printed 2 10R leh! super X arr

    I personally have not print digital before. From what I read from other threads, either the lab crop for you or they leave white borders on the shorter sides.

    The best way is to crop your prints to 3:2 yourself if you do not like the white border or the auto-crop...
