Fill-in and Fit-In Explained

Fill-in and Fit-in

When you are leaving your photos in to be printed, you may choose the option Fill-in or Fit-in. Fill-In is the standard, default setting.

Fill-In Explained

Most compact cameras take photos in a 4:3 ratio. What this means is that if you select a 6×4 size print (a 3:2 ratio), the whole sheet will be filled, but this will result in parts of your image being cropped.

Example:

(The darker area is not printed)

Fit-In Explained

If cropping the image does not suit you, as you need the whole image printed, you may choose to print as Fit-In.

If we take the same photo, and choose to print it as a 6×4 ¬†Fit-In, it will put the whole image on the sheet without cropping any of the image.
Example:

Alternatively, if neither of these options suits you, you will need to crop your image to be a 6×4.
