How to print to an A4 photo papaer through Lightroom or elsewise?
Jun 14, 2014

I am trying to print through LR's Print Module borderless photos in A4..

Problem is the standard dimensions of a DSLR photo is 3:2 while A4's dimensions are slightly different..

When checking the zoom to fill option in the print module, LR would crop the photo to fit it to A4.. Otherwise two slight white borders would come out at the upper and bottom borders..

In the develop module one can't crop to A4 directly unless by doing it manually..

I use the maximize template in LR for the layout in the print module..

My Questions is, what is the standard way or the best one which most or everyone uses to print A4s? Am I missing something or the only way is to crop the photo manually in the develop module beforehand in order for it to fit the A4 dimesions/aspect ratio?

And usually how does the printer get the job done if one is to use another application than LR or print directly using printer's own setting? Does it also crop the image or scale it?

This question has not been answered yet.
