If you haven't captured Widescreen (4608x2592) images, the only other option is to zoom in, which would crop off the bottom and top. If that's available at all, it would be an option of your television.

.....so in other words any 4:3 to 16:9 crop will introduce e stretching effect?

No. Cropping the top and bottom off of a 4:3 image will allow it to fit on a 16:9 screen without stretching. You'd just be losing about half the image.

G'day SP

TC's correct with the above info ... or another way of putting it might be "if you tried to put right foot into left shoe, it ain't gunna fit mate, unless something is cut off"

The TV system has no smarts to try to stretch / squeeze an image from one shape to another shape, - maybe if you tried this in a photo editor package to see the results, you would not want it to become a regular event
