creating a classic white border in photoshop for 4X6 print?
Dec 8, 2009

I know this is an easy fix but I'm not great in photoshop and need a little help.

I'm prepping some photos for print and need to output (from photoshop) 4X6 canvas size with a slightly smaller image size (so that I can create the classic white borders).

What's the correct ratio in inches (canvas size and image size) ?

For some reason it never looks quite right... perhaps it's because I haven't seen a real 4X6 print with white borders in a long time.

any advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks,
Michael

Not sure if it matters, but the photos were shot on a 5D MK II and the printer is asking for 300 DPI.
