Do You Crop to Standard Sizes or Best Looking Size?
Aug 26, 2011

Do you leave your photos full size, or only crop them to standard sizes, so your customers always get a photo that fully fills the standard size papers, even if that aspect ratio is not the best looking, or leaves some undesirable or suboptimal thing in the photo?

Or do you crop to what looks best, without regard to standard sizes?

If you crop to what looks best, do your clients feel like they got "cheated" if a photo is smaller than the standard size they bought, or the standard size paper has some white space because you cropped the image?

Do you have any issues or get complaints regarding custom cropped photos destined to be matted and framed because custom made mats must then be used?

How do you address pricing on custom cropped sizes versus pricing for standard paper sizes?
