Tracer, you cannot fit a photo whose long dimension is 1.5x times the short dimension, into a piece of print paper whose length is only 1.25x longer than its short dimension (like the 8x10" print)...that is what we refer to as 'aspect ratio'. Do you remember watching the old (10 years ago) 4:3 aspect ratio television sets, and watching wide screen movies on them? Same issue...you had to endure large black areas at top and bottom of the screen, or you had the left and right edges of the movie lopped off.
What we have to do, as photographers, is match the [aspect ratio of the print] being made in the [aspect ratio of pixels in the image file] that we are sending to the printer. If our original photo is 2000V x 3000H pixels, we can get these prints sizes without modification....
4x6", 6x9", 8x12", 10x15", 12x18", 16x24", etc.
But any other sizes will result in pixels being trimmed off, because ordinarily printers 'fill the page' and do not leave large blank white areas -- unless we are extremely insistent...and you can forget trying to get a drugstore printer to comply with that kind of request!
