    how do I crop an image to print


      Please help. I have a horizontal image in lightroom that Im trying to upload to Shutterfly. When I upload it to Shutterfly, it crops some of the people out of it. I've tried everything to adjust the size in LR but it still keeps cropping the image. I'm trying to upload it to an 8X12 print.

      I've read everything on this & none of it works.
      WHAT am I doing wrong?

      Thank you!

          You must do the crop to 8x12 in Lightroom, if you want an 8x12 print.


          So, select the crop tool, and then from the dropdown menu, you can select 2x3 or 4x6 (they are equivalent to 8x12) ... I believe the dropdown menu actually shows 6x4 which is the horizontal layout.


          Then when you export this photo and print at 8x12, it will retain the crop you created.
