Print Size Tips - D A Krieger Photography

When you order a print, you will have the opportunity to see the image in different sizes from what is shown on my site.


If you order a different size, here's a word about print size CROPPING and how it can affect what you receive:


The images you see on my website reflect a 4 inch x 6 inch image size ratio unless otherwise indicated.   

This is known as the ASPECT RATIO.  This means one side of the image is 4 inches long and the other is 6 inches.  Ordering any multiple of this means you will see the FULL IMAGE on your print.  For instance, a 2x3, 4x6 ,8x12, 12x18, 16x24, 20x30 and so forth print size will reflect the full image. 

If you order a different size from the above sizes, then the image will be CROPPED.  This means either the short sides or the long sides of the image rectangle will be cut off to a degree to make the image fit the print size you ordered.  

For example, ORDERING AN 8X10 PRINT will result in a more square shaped rectangle. You might be familiar with this when ordering prints from your local photo shop.  Because the print is more square shaped, the short sides of the image will be CROPPED (cut off) and some of the image eliminated.  

Likewise ORDERING A 4 X 12 PRINT will result in a more elongated shaped rectangle.  Because of this, the long sides of the image will be CROPPED (cut off) and some of the image eliminated.  

Please keep this in mind, so that the print you receive reflects the image you expect to see.
