This is a fantastic file, so easy to use and sent to all my clients now. I'd been meaning to do something like this for so long. It's not worth the time making your own when this is such great value and it's all there and done for you. It looks fantastic.

Cropping Guide

Since having the cropping guide review it is so much easier to explain and show my customers how their images will appear at certain sizes, and why parts of the photo gets cropped off at different sizes. Generally the client easily gets that using a square crop obviously parts of the image will be cropped, but often they do not understand the difference between a 6x4, 5x7, 8x10 and 10 x12 etc, they just don't think about it until they see the difference, so this is a wonderful explanation for them.
