Noel, forgive me for jumping into your post but Ann brings to mind another question - while we all purchase paper of a certain size, say 8x10 or 11x14, the final image is generally not printed to that size. Obviously it would be a matter of personal vision, but are there any general guidelines?

And I noticed that some like to cut the mat window so that ONLY the image shows and others will leave space inside the window, just preference or is there some guideline there as well. Understand that corner mounted prints vs dry mounted prints would have some influence.

Thanks in advance.
