I am using a two blade easel that got for free, I bought a bunch of mats from an art place and was intending to use them the size of the mats are 11x14 with 7,5x9,5 opening so that gave a bad vibe about what is going on with my sizing, I can't get those measurements! 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!
One of the thing I do is to print the full negative frame with some white space at the bottom. This gives you a spot to title it and sign it.
The other thing is printing the sprocket holes to fill some space.
See the examples.
