    Default whats the exact size of 4R?

    anyone can advise what is the exact size of 4R? seems it's not exact 4' x 6'. i crop my picture to exact 2:3 but after printing for 4R size, they still cut a bit on the bottom and left side.

    does the picuture shot by D60/10D can get perfect printing for 4R size without any crop?

    thank you very much

    4R is 4" by 6". (4' x 6' is 4 foot by 6 foot by the way)

    The printers usually can't or don't print exactly full frame onto the paper. Some detail at the edge is usually lost.

    what you can though is to print on a paper size that is bigger than 4" X 6"

    lets say A5, then add the crop/trim marks to 4" x 6 " and you get "full frame" printing

    4" x 6" is 4 Inches by 6 Inches or 4 Foot by 6 Foot?

    Fujifilm has 4DSC format that is slightly smaller than standard 4R but will definitely show the whole picture as you shot it.

    my camera can only generate 3:4 pictures. so i crop it to 2:3 precisely before i send it to kodak express for printing.

    therefore for 4R (4x6) which has the same proportion, there should be no cutting on edges (detail lost is fine but cut). but there are and significant. how significant? a person's hand is fully showed in my original picture near the edge but on printed, it's a hand without fingers!

    why?

    Right. Now then I understand what you meant earlier.

    4" is 4 Inch.
    4' is 4 Foot.
