Why is the 1:1 aspect ratio saved in RAW as a different proportion? I am tried of having to crop it back to 1:1? Does it make a difference in RAW which asprect ratio is selected?
Thanks in advence,

Canon EOS 80D
using EOS Utility 3 to import
Editing in Mac Photos.
I suspect that Mac photos is the problem. Are you saving the files as JPG format? Why don’t you use the Canon DPP application? Can Mac Photos process RAW files? If not, I suggest that you try saving the files as RAW, and use DPP to process them.

No they appear with a larger than 1:1 ratio on the camera and in the EOS Utility once imported before I import them to Photos on Mac....
You did not answer my questions. So, I will suggest that you read page 146 in the Instruction Manual on setting Aspect Ratio.

Ok thanks, i got the answer from the manual:
The images will always be saved with the [3:2] aspect ratio. The selected aspect ratio information is added to the RAW image file. When you process the RAW image with Digital Photo Professional (EOS software), this allows you to generate an image with the same aspect ratio set for shooting. In the case of the [4:3], [16:9], and [1:1] aspect ratios, the lines to indicate the aspect ratio will appear during image playback, but they are not actually drawn on the captured image.

Aspect ratio is a term that describes the dimensions of an image. It is comparing the width to the height and expressing it in the form of a ratio. The aspect ratio of your images is primarily determined by the fixed physical dimensions of your camera's sensor. It is easier to crop in post. If your camera doesn't have an aspect ratio selection, it is the only way to do it.
