Very interesting. What size prints did you get? Our local Walgreens crops the top and bottom of 4:3 aspect images when printing them on 6x4 inch prints.

This varies from one Walgreens store to another. Many offer "digital" paper sizes. If this option is available, then any 4:3 images are detected automatically, and it will appear at the very end of the ordering process, before you confirm your order. At least this is how it works if you order online. If this option is not available at your chosen store, then it will never appear. But the 4:3 prints should be exactly that ratio, otherwise they are not detected.

Just to confirm, using the method you described above, the 6x4 inch prints of 4:3 aspect images have borders (color of border user selectable) on both sides. Is that correct?

No, they are actually printed on 4x5.33 inch paper, borderless. Some labs also offer 8x10.67 prints that also match 4:3 aspect ratio exactly.


You would have to get custom frames & mats for those.  Not sure that's such a good thing.
