Quick question, had to do a group shoot the other day for a nursing class. I had the image cropped in my camera for 8 X 10 so I thought. I had two instructors jump in the picture making it wider and I forgot to compose the shot a little wider so now I can't crop the original to a 8 X 10.

What are some inventive ways to fix this. Given the original image size I can give them all 8 X 12's instead of the quoted 8 X 10's. But I would rather do something else.

Look forward to some thoughts [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I can't remember the actual term for this procedure, but I know that if you have your prints done at Printroom .com you can have it done with what they call white borders.

basically it takes the 8x12 and puts it on 8x10 paper but you end up with about a 1/2 inch of white paper on both long sides of the print

In Photoshop you can increase the canvas size then paint in the white space using the background from you image. Then recrop if necessary.

Hope this helps.. Israel

Maybe I can do the canvas resize and put a border around it with a headline below the image like "Graduating Class 2003" or something....hmm that might work.

Thanks!

Use a "software" matte to fill in the dead space. there are many free-ware softwares out their, they can be realy basic but some do an excellent 3d matteing effect. print it 8X10 the end result will be a pretty cool custom matting job built into the photo. I wouldn't try this for galley work but hey the customer may just loive it.

look at "photo matte lab" they have trial that you can use to create a tiff image, and then just overlay your image inside
