A couple of weeks ago, I bought a used Leica M, made a WEB site for
photography, bought a scanner, did some tests. started a paw - only one
for now but have material for past 4 weeks, have been printing some 8 x
on an inkjet printer, bought another book on PhotoShop, made a portfolio
old images from Thai-Cambodia border, joined LUG, and have been spending

hours digging through boxes in the garage and classifying slides and
negatives going back to high school in the 50's.

With that for an introduction, my question has to do with cropping. The
at Keeble & Shuchat who sold me the Leica showed me some nice BW prints
his trip to Cuba - all of which are full frame.  I've hardly ever
pictures full frame. 8 x 10 speed easels didn't seem to match 35x24 mm
or 2
1/4 square negatives years ago. But then I've almost never cropped any
slides. (Let's see.  Make a 'L' with thumb and forefinger and hold in
of the projector to get rid of that annoyance on the lower left of this

Habitually, do you crop images when printing them?
