right I want to get prints made up of some photos, but I want this photo


to be like this

but I want it to come out on the same sized paper....



basicly I want the first photo to be closer in but witout losing any of there body, or without screwing the ratio.... so what would I change the ratio to?



basicly Im confused and I hope someone knows what Im talking about.



thanks

The only way itcan be done is to stretch the horizontal dimension. I doubt that the subjects of the photo would like that. It cannot be done any other way.

One solution is to get some custom matting done so it fits in the same size frame by having wider borders on the sides.

Umm yea the only way to do it is to upset the aspect ratio which will distort the image.

Umm im thinking about moving the left tarten or thingie in the backing (sorry have no idea wt to call it) downward. If i can reduce the overall height of the hot then the horizontal should fall in place. When i get home from work i wil have a look at it


i think in this instnace set up your image so the vertical plane is how u like it. Dont worry about the horizontal as this wil have plenty of give in it.Print the image and then buy a frame with an insert in it. maybe a dark colour and shape the insert to the shape u want sothe aspect ratio that you like it all tht shows through. the rest of the photo can hide behind. i do this technique all the time. you will neva know.

If you want to keep the aspect ratio, you are going to have to have some blank space to one side or the other. I am guessing you want to keep the crop close to the tartans, so the only solution would be to expand the canvas on the left side of the photo, as I have done here.

It would help if you first straightened is so your subjects are vertical.
