Hi there, I want to print my digital camera photos and the mainstream online services seem to offer nly 2:3 prints, with weird ways of dealing with the 4:3 pictures a lot of the digital cameras produce nowadays.

It is an international forum and you don't list your location in your profile, so it is difficult to make concrete recommendations.

If you are in the US, then Mpix does 9 x 12 inch prints very inexpensively. You will probably find that most high quality services will cut down to whatever size you want. Or, if you want small sizes and smallish volume, then you can buy a small rotary trimmer from an office or arts supply store and get your printer to not crop the image; you can then trim off the excess.

It is more trouble than it is worth for high volume labs in the US: there are few photo paper sizes that are 4:3 (4.5 x 6 inches and 6 x 8 inches, if you can find them) and noUSregular paper size that is 4:3. The international A sized papers have an aspect ratio of square root of two to one (about 1.4:1).

Are you looking for large format or small format? Are you looking for fine art papers or standard photo paper?
