    OK, maybe more software related.
    Background: I photograph my wife's art and we print out copies for
    sale. Of course she also sells the originals. Mostly she sells 11x14's.
     So a problem arises when the art aspect ratio doesn't match the paper.
    Yeah I could print 11x17's but it's way easier to standardize on one
    size. A couple of her pictures are a bit too wide to look good on
    11x14. The composition however would allow for a little bit of vertical
    stretching to better fit the paper. Printer drivers don't really work.
    I am trying Viewpoint but it is more focused on lens corrections. I end
    up with too much distortion. I haven't be able to figure out how to do
    a graduated vertical stretch ideally concentrating the stretching in
    the sky and water areas and leave the subject alone. This would be
    minimal, maybe 1/2" top/bottom.
    So can any of you give me a little guidance? I use DxO, Affinity,
    Faststone mostly. I have an old version of Lightroom..v5?? but haven't
    really used it.

Pretty sure a good job could be done in PS, a couple of options, but no idea how in other editors. Looks likely to be easy in PS, but I'm pretty handy in there.

Wanna send me a file to try?

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
