Its been 4 years since I had any of my photos printed. I will be getting some done soon and have a question about cropping my photos in PS before I get them printed. I just read Trix's post about his image resizing question but it didn't really answer my question.
If I crop a photo to remove unwanted elements I have always used the non-dimension, feehand crop tool , almost always results in a non-format weird size. Which is fine for posting pics on the web.
But if I'm printing them off at Harvey Norman, or K-Mart etc and I dont want to have to have bits cut off to fit their template, what should I do in post processing?
Should I use the 6x4 crop and get as close as I can to how I really want it look when cropped or do I crop it as I please and then somehow re-size it back to the 6x4 format ( in which case it will look distorted?)
Also, if i have my 6x4's ready to go and decide I want to print a 10x8, is it better to crop a separate 10x8 size in Photoshop for printing, or use the 6x4 and let the machine in store sort out the resizing?
