Amy Penny Photography | Print size information

Digital cropping ratios seem to be quite the mystery for many clients/buyers. Many times people order and image in a size that doesn't suit that particular image. Hope this explanation will take out some of the confusion ot of why the image you see in your gallery will look different when it is printed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Aspect ratio is the relationship of an image's width to height, or its proportions. Digital cameras produce files with an aspect ratio of 4:3, but many common photo print sizes have a different aspect ratio. For example, a 4 x 6 print has an aspect ratio of 3:2, and 8 x 10 has an aspect ratio of 5:4.  When I have someone order something in a size I don't feel will work for an image, I will contact them and let them know, and may send a cropped screenshot of that photo to let them know what it will look like when printed.
