Let me refrase the question.
What size do you guys process your images to take best advantage of your sensors image area?

I load the RAW image, and process the whole image at full resolution (and 16 bits/pixel), then I crop it to a suitable composition, still at full resolution. Then I print that full resolution (scaling as needed to fit the media I'm using). I only reduce the resolution (both in terms of number of pixels and in terms of 8bits/pixel) when I'm making JPEGs for Web display.

Is that what you are asking?

Well your answer is a lot better than the suare root of the sensor or what ever the other guy said.
I'll try that, I fix in camera raw, convert to tff or jpg then crop to media size. Almost always loose 20% or more of the original imag that way.
I always get good answers from you guys on that Island! (:-)

Frank,

I think the thing that is confusing about this question/post is terminology. You're saying "crop to a media size". CatCynic is saying "crop to a composition" which is also my understanding of cropping. Certainly, when you crop to a composition, you will lose that portion of the original image (and it's associated pixels) that you crop out. But, the remaining "compositional crop" will still be at the same pixel resolution of the original, just smaller in total pixels because the total image is now smaller. i.e. If you have an image at 300ppi resolution and you crop to a smaller image, the resolution doesn't change unless you specify a lower resolution.

Hope this is helpful. Cheers,

LSC
