    And how about the young bride who could not understand why the shoes that showed in the 5x7 did not show in the 8x10.

    Q.G. to print full borderless prints onto an 8"x10" sheet of paper, you will have to crop one end of a 35mm negative. Usually one will crop the feet, not the head, although

    Basically the proportions of a 5"x7" piece of paper are reasonably close to a 35mm negative, proportion wise. The 8"x10" paper is different.

    Actually A4 B&W paper from Ilford is very close to the 35mm proportions and enlarges with virtually no cropping.

    Yes.
    I still don't understand.

    The young bride in the example bought some images. She liked one well enough to want a larger version of it.
    And then the photographer says it can't be done, because paper happens to come in certain sizes, so she has to make do with a different image.

    No matter how i try, i simply cannot understand.
    I don't understand how people let paper confection sizes determine what will be in the image and what will not.

    Strikes me as something extremely silly. Extremely unprofessional.
    And that's an understatement extreme in size too.

    MANY years ago, Eaton's had a photofinishing service. Black and white photos were processed and delivered in a little album with front and back covers, and deckel edges on the prints. I still have one of those little albums, with the pictures in it upside down. (or the covers were upside down, depending on your point of view...)

    QG - when the aspect ratio, (length vs width) of a negative differs from that of the print size cropping is inevitable. In the case of the bride a 5x7 print included the shoes. An 8x10 print, being a "squatter" aspect ratio will entail either cutting off her shoes - or her head! The alternative would be a 7.15 x 10 print - which would maintain the same length by width ratio, and thereby include both head and shoes. It's not silly and unprofessional - it's just physics.

    No, Bob.

    The decision to alter the image, just because if you don't you would 'waste' a bit of paper is not physics.

    It is silly. And unprofessional.
