FastStone Image Viewer can do that.
Yes i do! [ 3:2 / 16:9 / 4:3 etc etc ]
nah i don't care, as long as it looks good..
in the case of the 450D where the aspect ratio is already 3:2 and i add in borders to the sides. the borders will not appear or will be come lopsided due to the printing right?
so for the borders to appear properly i should do a crop of a 3:2 together with the borders so that the print out can be correct?
or should i ask them to add in borders for me instead?
#1 expending the canvas, the image is no long 2:3. so when you make print, the four borders are not all in same thickness.
#2, create a background layer in with the color borders you want, using transform tool to reduce the images for revealing partial background layer to be borders, the four borders are not all in same thickness.
#3, using storke tool to add borders, the four borders will all in same thickness now, but the borders will EAT into your image area.
if you really want to do custom borders, will be like what I said earlier, need to run some test prints and adjust and test prints and adjust and test prints adjust till you get what you want.
anyway, you also can ask the lab to print your photos with borders, can save all your trouble.
what are the standard aspect ratio for panaromic shots?

I always follow the option provided in Photoshop, example like 8 in X 10 in, etc. I keep the aspect ratio
For single shots I usually do not alter or crop the existing 3:2.
For panos the length varies. Some are nicer longer, some are not
