Check their website if they have one and seefor your self what he usually does.

If there's no information like that for u, then do the BEST u can.

good luck!

From beginning to end, nobody crops images. That's the art director's job, and it's usually done in InDesign.

If anything, art directors are always looking to add or extend images to fill page sizes.
