Thread: cropping on enlarging

  1. #1

    Default cropping on enlarging

    Konota cropped my 35mm negatives (without my asking them to do so) pretty significantly while enlarging to 6R. Is this something to be expected when making 6R prints? I would have thought that something which prints without cropping on 4R should print without cropping on 6R.

    FYI: 4R is 4" x 6" (2:3 ratio), and 6R is 6" x 8" (3:4 ratio)

    that explains it - which size is exactly proportional to 4R then?

    there is super 6R too which is 6 x 7.5 inches in dimension. just multiply the shorter side by 1.5 to get 3:2 ratio.

    6 X 1.5 = 9. So, I guess Super 6R is not in the 35mm negative ratio, unless you made a typo.
