    If I print at 8x10 the portrait is stretched! Is there a way I can still
    print at standard sizes and get proportions correct?

    You are no doubt printing on to A4 paper which is bigger than 8x10.
    Somewhere in you printer settings you have a box ticked that says
    'stretch to fill paper' or maybe 'constrain proportions' is unticked,
    or something like that. It varies from printer to printer. Look around
    and you'll find it.

  3. If you are using Photoshop, double click the Crop icon.
    Check the box with "fixed target size".
    Enter 8 x10 for the height and width.
    In the resolution box, you can either leave it blank and accept the
    uninterpolated size, or you can set the resolution to, say 240 pixels/inch,
    and Photoshop will crop your image to 8 x 10 and resample (interpolate) it to
    240 ppi for printing at top quality all in one action.
