Re: [Gimp-user] 8x10 photo without cropping...

Thanks!  I ended up uploading the original image, then used the website that is going to make the 8x10 to figure out where it was going to be cropped - then took my gimp creation and adjusted accordingly - at least now I know!  :)

from 4x6 to 8x10 is different ratio and either you loose some picture or
have blank space.  4x6 expands to 8x12 or 6.67x10  An option, save your
additions to a layer and shrink the layer to the dimentions to fit the
intended size and merge the layer to 8x10

without carnival mirror type distortion, there is no easy change from 4x6
to 8x10.
