Photography Question


Recommended Posts

Have a ton of phone photos, all taken in 16:9 (because, well - that's what the screen looks like)

a) what's the best way to print these photos to maintain 16:9 format, as some of the framing relies on the larger image vs trying to determine the best crop?

b) should I join the masses and switch the camera setting to 4:3 to not have this issue moving forward? I like the 16:9 concept, but seems 4:3 may be my only printing option without doing cropping or letterboxing.

If I want to print the 16:9, am I basically looking at letterboxing or are there better options?  Shutterfly doesn't seem to have a 16:9 print size.  I have Photoshop or other image manipulation programs avail if that helps.

You're pretty much stuck with a crop as most prints work on that 4:3 ratio.

If you're OK using a custom print settings, you can do that at home.  I don't know of many places that will do a 16:9 print.

Here's a good thread that has some ideas on how to do that:

Literally the same thread I was going to refer to. You basically have the two options laid out there unless you have access to a professional printer. And honestly either of them are fine.
