How do you get a picture to fit as a 5 x 7 ?

I have a picture on my cell phone that is 1.35 MB - 3850x1779.
It is a group picture of 6 of us.

I tried to resize it to be smaller, but when I add it to CVS photo shop to print, the photo is cropped for 5 x 7 and two of the guys in the photo are cropped out and it cannot be resized

How can i get this photo sized to fit in a 5 x 7 frame without cropping out anyone or having the picture distorted ?

thanks

Try rotating the photo 90 degrees. It's probably trying to print a 5x7 portrait from a 7x5 landscape.

You have to do some editing and crop the photo so what you want remains in the photo. Not all pictures can be made to fit a standard photo size or aspect ratio. You may need to print to a larger size, cut the print as you want then cut a custom sized mat or frame to fit the photo.

A photo in Preview (Apple, Mac) can be resized proportionally and cropped if necessary.





In this example the image is stretched. To keep original proportion do not click on padlock.
