Print sizes...Help.
« on: May 19, 2010, 06:20:38 PM »
Having sorted some of my favourite images i decided to get some prints done, which i haven't done since having my camera (A300). I ordered them online and opted for the (10"x8") size, the file sizes were approx the same (3806 x 2634) but when i received the prints on the 8" side i had about a 1" strip on the top and bottom, now i know its more than likely im showing my inexperience but what have i done wrong?

Im assuming its the file size or something as im not sure how this affects the prints. Any help or pointer would be greatly appreciated....also a friend has let me take some images of his Harley davidson 1953 Panhead which i stitched 3 images together then cropped which has given me dimensions of (8152 x 3153) so my next 2 questions (sorry) are

1. what size print options do i have without losing any of the images.
2. what size should i re-size it to so i can display it in image galleries.

Any help as i said would help as i cant get my head around this.
