Either print at a 3:2 ratio (9x6, 18x12 etc) or crop.

If that's no good, then you could add a border, bringing up to the 4:3 ratio of 8x6, and keeping the 3:2 ratio image in the centre.

Not much else to do really!

There is usually an option for maintaining a specified aspect ratio on the crop tool. I haven't used PSP, but it's almost certainly there somewhere.
you don't have to be mad to post here



but it does help
