    you lose a bit of info everytime you save into jpeg. if you're concerned, save onto tiff.

    frd, alternatively, if you don't wish to crop at all, tell the shop to print with borders without any resizing, then after you collect the prints, either leave it as it is, or cut out the borders.

    For me, if I don't wish to crop or crop too much, then I'll add in the borders myself in Photoshop with the whole resulting image being 3:2.

    do remember that cropping 3:2 is only for 4R.
