    This is what I get when I crop it to 8x10. So what you are saying is you cannot get that whole image to fit on a 8x10.
    Thanks

    Not exactly. You can get the "whole" image to fit on a 8x10 with white strips at the top and/or bottom of the photo. What you cannot do is to force a 2x3 aspect ratio image to entirely fill an 8x10 sheet of paper without cropping either/both ends of the photo or as erichlund said "distorting" the image.

    Below is your image with cloned grass/sky at the bottom/top of the photo.

    i do exactly what ray just pointed out. either print it with the two white lines top and bottom and then physically cut them out with scissors after you print. or clone in the gaps if possible.

    So I need to make the image smaller and then fill in the edges?? How come I cannot even crop the original image to a 8x10?

    Question #1 - no, just fill in the edges. No need to make the image smaller.

    Question #2 - I don't know. I did just that by using the method I described earlier.

    you can but you wont be able to attain the same aspect ratio so you will lose some of the image or you have to distort it. why make it an 8x10 anyway ? why not 8x12 then you wont have these issues and 8x12 is a much more pleasing aspect anyway imo.

    Never though of that. I though 8x10 was a standard format. I guess that is why my friend don't have a problem printing my images. Thanks Rooz I will try that.

    remember that the aspect ratio you shoot in has a 1.5x ratio. the long side is 1.5x the length of the short side.

    6x4
    8x12
    10x15
    12x18
    14x21

    etc etc etc

    this may help frank.
