    Default Photo printing queries

    Looking at printing some of my digital photos and I have the following queries:

    1) If I print at 5R (5" by 7") or 6R (6" x 8"), I suppose my 3:2 pictures will be printed with borders huh? What's the next "step" after 4R for borderless 3:2 prints? S8R?

    2) How much roughly would the above sizes (5R, 6R, S8R) cost? I have 62 pictures to print, better if I can get a rough quote on this bulk quantity rather than per sheet price (since they usually offer cheaper for more quantities eh?)

    Many thanks in advance!

    #1, yes, if your image is 3:2 ratio, and print on the 5R or 6R, some part of the image will be crop off, or have white border.
    and yes, S8R is in 3:2 ratio too, but some labs do offer super 5R and super 6R paper size, which is 3:2 ratio too.

    #2, for the price, you can call the labs to find out the price.

    8R (8" x 10") 8 1800 x 1200 1.25
    S8R (8" x 12") 10 1800 x 1200 1.5
    10R (10" x 12") 16 1800 x 1200 1.2
    S10R (10" x 15") 20 1800 x 1200 1.5

    was previously from the kodak print website..

    from wat i know they wont give u white borders automatically they usually make own judgement to crop it
    best to crop urself to the ratio
