I guess I will have to learn how to make my own mats because sometimes I could crop and get the image all the way to 8x10 but other times I had to cut half of an important part of the image. Thanks for the tips!
Jaime:

This is where you get to practice in-camera cropping .

If you have a pre-ordained aspect ratio you need to print to, the best way to do it is to take it into account when you are first composing the shot.

Reminds me of wedding work .
