Some other interesting sites I’ve found that are of great value when it comes to working out how to resize or crop photos for print.

Dummies.com actually has a really good article here “Trimming Pictures to Standard Photo Sizes

Another one of interest comes from Adobe Press “Making Photos Look Their Best
