I remember setting a setting to have a aspect ratio of 2-3 but can't remember where I did it at. I don't remember if i did it on the camera Canon 20D or in photoshop elements or in Rawshooter. Seems like before when I would crop a 4x6 picture I was losing part of the edge but now I can get the whole picture. Can anyone help me or am I just spacing out. :?

Help I am going nuts??????

Your camera uses an aspect ratio of 3:2 (needed for 4x6" prints if you don't want to crop).

So, if you saw something different than that, you were doing it in an editor (perhaps by resizing without constraining proportions, which would distort an image).

Now, most raw files actually contain some extra pixels. But, most raw converters throw them away. It's possible that you were using one that actually kept them in the final image. But, usually, there are not enough of them to impact aspect ratio anyway.

Thank You

I just switched cameras from a FZ 20. That may have been it.

I am glad to hear from you I thought I was going crazy.
