    Of course. The aspect ratio of the picture from you cam is different from the 4R size.

    One way is to crop your pics before you sent in for printing. What is your picture resolution?

    before sending to them, ensure that your height & width are according to your print size. e.g. 4R ratio of 4 : 6

    usually cannot maintain same pic, got to crop the top and bottom suitably such that the composition is still desirable.

    Or if you still want the same pic, introduce white borders on the left and right hand side to make up the 2:3 ratio lor....but will be ugly.

    yar but when you crop, you have the control. You can control how much of the top to crop, and how much of the bottom to crop.

    If you leave it to the shop, you got to trust their judgement and professionality. There were some people who got pictures that were undesirably cropped. An extreme example, would be like part of the head of the people cropped off when there is enough space at the bottom to be cropped.

    actually got bian lah..
    there is this special format of photo paper that caters to digital camera format of 4:3. Ziploc has developed that before at Soo Kee so maybe he can tell you more. I can't remember what it is called.

    I dunno...got to ask ziploc, or maybe some other people can help.

    Btw for normal photo paper, the aspect ratio is 2:3. Use the crop tool in photoshop lor, quite useful.

    actually it's the same when you send in negatives for prints. not the whole frame is printed for all sizes.

    for digital pics, at least you could crop it the way you want before printing.

    Er... I think those prints that does not crop are actually printed in APS aspect ratio... C size or something... not sure...

    For cropping, select the croping tool and set the options to contraint aspect ratio and enter the ration as required.

    If printing normal regular shots, just get some cheap photoquality matt paper... print 6 shots in one page and cut yourself... cheaper...approximately $1+ for 6 pictures...
