One of the challenges that many people have when ordering prints of their digital images is trying to figure out the print sizes. Many times I get requests for a 8×10 print or a 24×30 print and I have to contact the customer to tell them that a print of those dimensions will cut off part of their subject. If your subject takes up most or all the image then cropping it will either take away the look you were going for a ruin the image.

If the size you are looking at having printed says cropped then you will be loosing some of the subject in the image. Sometimes this is not a huge issue. Other times it is not good.
