Hey, ok so I may be late to the party but all of my photos have been for instagram use only (no prints required)

Now that I have done a few photos for people where they are wanting to print I am discovering a whole new issue with cropping and being able to print. I rang a photo lab to get some advise and she was SOOOOO rude! I know I need to know this stuff but I don't. So please tell me what I need to set my camera to or what not to do when editing/cropping. Photo example below. I did this edit and as I have cropped it and it is now square my client won't be able to print this without it cropping her in half. Same with the wedding i did. I just went to print a family shot and it cuts their feet off. I know i know I should know all this! There is just so much to know.

Another example 😪 just so you can see the image size

and now i instantly feel sick 

 

Ok so once I get to PS i save as a PSD (no editing in photoshop has been done)

Then once editing as been done example levels etc etc then save again?? This is where I am confusing myself I think. 

Then I crop it and save as a jpeg for my clients? Then delete the jpeg? So once I crop it they now won't have an issue with printing? far out im sorry for being so daft

I urge you to re-read the very last module of the Bridge Class.  This is spelled out very clearly.

You don't have to save it straight away.  But it doesn't hurt.

Save (by hitting Ctrl S) frequently as you're editing, so you keep your PSD file up-to-date (in case you have a computer crash or a power outage).

But don't save multiple PSD files of course.  Only the one master PSD file.
