8R is about A4 minus a bit... hmm what's bigger?
8R is 8" X 10" (2" edge is cropped)
Super 8R (8Rs) is 8" X 12" (2:3) :D

Isn't it 2:3 instead??? :D

3:4 is our monitor ratio or compact digicam format...

I personally have not print digital before. From what I read from other threads, either the lab crop for you or they leave white borders on the shorter sides.

The best way is to crop your prints to 3:2 yourself if you do not like the white border or the auto-crop... :)
