I just dropped by my neighbourhood photo developing shop and wanted to develop some 3R photos but apparently the shop keeper told me 3R size photos are obsolete already!

Is that true? or it just so happens that...they do not do it hence they tell me so.
:dunno:

Yes, kind of,
cos there is very low demand of 3R prints nowadays, since is using 5" roll paper, which is less usage also (can only use for 3R and 5R prints)
so some labs will charge same price as 4R prints, some labs simply say don't offer 3R prints anymore (not worth the time and efforts of changing the paper cartridge)
