    Question Why different R-size got different ratio?

    Just wondering why different R-size photo have different ratio? Why not all the same ratio then is easier, especially for digital.

    Those use film to develop different R-size photo, take a close look. Are the cropping different for different size too?

    The R thing isn't quite a standard. In other countries (e.g. Europe, USA), they don't have the R system. It's always 4 x 6, 5 x 7, etc. Anyway, back from the old days, these are the standard paper sizes. 35mm film is always 3:2, so in the good old days, when you print to say, 8 x 10 or 5 x 7, you also have to crop.
