Hi all.

I currently have a photo that fits perfectly on an S8R print. However, I want to add a white border around the image before sending it for printing.

How do I do so? I've tried using Canvas Size, but the border that comes out will longer fit S8R properly. After cropping to 8in by 12in, the border will be uneven. I need an even border around the image...

TIA!

Additional question here... Didn't want to start a new thread.

I have a photo cropped to 16:9 ratio and I want to send it to a photo lab. What should I do/tell them? I don't really understand the 16:9 discussions I found here on CS.

So far I've thought only thought of these:

- Use PS and place the 16:9 photo on an S8R canvas. Print, and then cut away the borders (will the shop cut for you?)

- Tell them it's a panorama (is a 16:9 ratio even considered a panoramic ratio?)

TIA!

FIT IN to a S8R print and trim it yourself, you should paid only for a S8R print, if you ask them to cut in for you, may charge you a fee for cutting the print.

odd size print may cost two or three times more.

cut yourself. it is not that hard.. :) just make sure you tell the lab printing it to make sure your entire image is in.

some of them might just happily crop out the sides for you,
