How to crop for printing?

[Copy link]

Post time: 2015-7-12 19:13:13 |Show all posts
I've not done much printing and wanted to print something. I'm not sure how to go about cropping it properly.
I want to do a 12 X 20 print. How do I crop in Lightroom so it comes out right?
Thanks

And yes, it is just that simple. Enter the numbers, and you have defined a new custom crop ratio that you can use whenever you want.

it's a ratio and therefore, dimensionless.  just put in 12 and 20 (or vice-versa (even though the box will autorotate if you make it small enough))

in Develop, in the toolbar, on the left is the cropping tool. You'll want to setup a custom aspect ratio
Howard:
I did this and the "Enter Custom Aspect Ratio" box came up.
By default it has "1.000 X 1.000"  Is this inches?
Is it as simple as changing this to 12 x 20?
