It's been a long time since I took prints from my digital images .Can I ask someone to remind me which print sizes are full frame i.e. no cropping? I have 6x4 inches 8x6 and 10x8 in my mind and not others such as 7x5 inches? Thanks

Try resizing them in whatever you use for editing to the size you wish to print and see if they will fit without cropping.

Thanks. I should have said- I am getting them printed elsewhere and not doing them myself

I would still resize so you know exactly what they will print, most places ask for it.

Going to depend on camera. If as I assume you mean most 35mm cameras such as say my Canon 5DMKIII then its a 2:3 aspect ratio but some use the 4/3 now. Nor sure it matter though as it is what crop suits the image Anyhow 6x4 9x6 12x8 should all work without cropping (but if they don't tough I'm not offering a warrantry!)

Assuming that you are using a dslr then the sensor size is 24 x 36mm on a full frame or 18 x 24 on a crop camera such as the Canon 700D. Therefore your ratio is 2 : 3 so any multiple of that....

2 x 3
4 x 6
6 x 9
8 x 12
12 x 16
and so on. Any number multiplied by two is tho there number x 3...

Full frame printing size is 4x6, 6x9, 8x12, 12x18, at most of the high street lab, or photo shop, i.e. Kodak Express, Fuji Imaging centre etc.

Just enter your image resolution into this:   Aspect Ratio Calculator

Seriously though, this is pre-teen maths

Why not use PS or similar to work it out. Just resize the short edge to 10cm...and see what the long edge comes to. Or use any of your potential sizes....put in the short edge....see what the long edge comes out at.

You can of course set the cropping tool to any ratio you want and use that to play with your image to get the effect you are looking for.
