Since a majority of my images are viewed on a computer/tablet/flat screen tv, I now crop everything to try and fit to a 16x9 ratio. I feel this looks best when viewing slideshows. If I was to print I would probably use some other ratio.


I think you are assuming a lot. Too much, in fact. We have several televisions in the house and several computers. The screen sizes, or rather, shapes vary between 'traditional' and wide screen. That is also the case in my office.

I wasn't assuming everyone views images in this ratio but just how I view them on my electronics.  I crop them for my viewing pleasure.
