    Default Crop to fit photoframe

    Hey all. I have ikea photo frame and its mearsurements
    without the border is 40cm x 50cm.15 3/4 x 19 3/4"
    With border is 29x 39cm 11 1/2 x 15 1/4"

    May i know which crop to use in Picassa if i want my photo to fit perfectly into the frame, borderless?

    P.S crop of the photo is mandatory, and im wondering is it the 20x25 crop cause its the same ratio as the 40x50

    Confuse of border.
    photo w/o border is 40cm x 50cm
    how can your photo with border (29x 39cm) is smaller than above ? Usually with border, the photo should be larger size

    what border are you referring to ? photo border ? photo frame border ?

    As for print, do not focus on the photo frame border.

    If you want to print a photo with 40cm x 50cm and you have a unknown resolution image. Just crop it to the ratio of 4:5 or 5:4 depend on prnting orientation.

    1. Measure the print size of your photo frame e.g. 40cm x 50cm

    2. Decide the border size like 5cm

    3. Calculate the photo size w/o border, now become (40cm-10cm x 50cm-10cm) = 30cm x 40cm

    4. Create or design a photo with ratio of 3:4 or 4:3.
