    So I want to have some prints made but I was wondering what size I could go with for some of my widescreen format pictures.
    The normal ones were 2816x2112 which I am guessing is the 4x6 "format" but the widescreen ones are 2816x1584, what kind of size for print would be appropriate to keep the image intact not shrunk or anything? Is like 8x10 widescreen?

    thanks

    I dont remember offhand but you can go to photoshop choose the crop tool and put in size 8 * 10, at least that's what i do

    Open the photo up in Photoshop. Goto Image > Image size and see what the inch measurement is and decide from there. The DPI should be no less then 300 dpi. If you want to have a printer print them for you, convert the mode to CMYK first to ensure accuracy.

    thoes "wide" ones are 16:9. You will need to crop them or else they will be squished.
