Cropping and Print Sizes

February 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Once I finish taking all of those beautiful pictures of you, I'll upload the images to your own personal gallery. There you'll be able to purchase prints (paper, canvas, & metal!) in many sizes. Many, many sizes. But, how do you know which size to choose? Why choose one size over another?

Want a long drawn out explanation of printing? No? Ok, well how about this chart?

 

 

In a nutshell, you will lose a little bit of your image if you choose a print size in the first row. Those are the most common sizes...the ones we have always purchased. It's common to go straight for those sizes because not only are they familiar but you can buy frames for them most anywhere. But, don't be afraid of the second row! 

Prints in the second row aren't much bigger (or smaller) than the common sizes (8x10 vs 8x12) and you won't lose any of what you see in your gallery. Frames are a little tougher to find just anywhere, but they are available locally at stores like AC Moore & Michael's and can be ordered online or by special order through me.  

 

 

Here's a closer look at an 8x10 and an 8x12. In this particular image, one inch has been removed from the top and one from the bottom to get an 8x10.  Remember, the 8x12 is the same ratio as the original image.

 

When in doubt about what you should pick, you can always ask me, of course. We'll work together to choose the print sizes that are right for you.
