    4R is 4" x 6", so the ratio is 3:2.
    5R is 5" x 7", ratio is 5:7.
    8R is 8" x 10", ratio is 4:5.
    Super 8R is 8" x 12", ratio 3:2.

    That's because Standard Colour has no standard. That's not the way to do it. At the better labs, you have the choice of :

    1. Crop (like what Standard does)
    2. Fit into 4R (and leave 2 white borders on the sides, but you get the full frame)
    3. Print the full frame onto non-standard size paper (i.e. 4" x 5.33" as opposed to 4" x 6" of 4R).

    You get what you pay for.

    Alternatively, crop yourself the way you want before sending it in. Good luck if you have 500 pictures to crop.

    Well, pay more and go to a decent lab where you can tell them what to do and what not to do. Pay peanuts, get monkeys.

    Just wondering whether anyone had tried asking Standard Photo the various choices? If not, the default is for the shop to crop. Fujifilm will do it too when there's no request.

    Can you measure the size of your picture, is it 4" x 5.33"? If yes, this is not 4R format as commonly known.

    Have not tried Standard, would rather pay a bit more, talk to someone who knows what I am talking about, and get great results consistently without having to wait a week.

    From the resolution you are shooting at, do a bit of math. E.g. if you shoot 2048 x 1536, it will be 2048 / 1536. Reduce to the lowest possible fraction (what do you call that? ) and you get 4/3, which is 4:3.
