Re: Converting from 4:3 to 3:2

3:2 is simply a cropration for your pictures

Oly takes 4:3 which means that the pictures are 4 units wide and 3 units high

The people in the competition want 3 units wide and 2 high

in PS you can set the crop box to 3000 pixels by 2000 pixels and that's what you get when you hit crop whatever size box you have drawn. You can have other values such as 3 in x 2 in and a pixels per inch value which givey you a more dynamic number of pixels

In more user friendly and sensible software you can set the ratio for the crop rather than a number of pixels or inches, but the results are the same

Andy
