Photos were cropped in camera - what size book to use ?

I have a cookbook which was close to finished about a year ago but I got  bogged down with the photos.

 

I bought a Nikon and some lighting  equipment and after studying a lot I now have some pretty good photos for about  half the recipes.

 

Now I'm suddenly worried.

 

I basically cropped the photos in the camera so if I crop them for the book then they won't look right.

 

Can you recommenced a book size which would not require me to crop the photos?

 

They are 6000x4000

 

 

Thanks,

 

Michael

Assuming 6000x4000 is pixel dimensions, those are fairly large images. Print resolution is 300 ppi, so your images would be 20" X 13.33" out of the camera. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

That's entirely up to you. Your images are large enough to use any trim size you'd like, within CreateSpace's capabilities. Here's more info on trim sizes: https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/#content4.
