4:3 v. 3:2
In reply to Guy Parsons, Mar 18, 2014

The only problem I've encountered with 4:3 aspect ratio is printing 4x6's; especially if you don't have time to crop each one, something's gonna get lost.  That doesn't usually matter unless in the original image you've filled the entire frame with essential elements. You usually do lose something no matter which aspect ratio and print size you use. However, other than 4x6's the 4:3 ratio is closer to that of  most standard print sizes, e.g. 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, 16x20.
