I couldn’t help myself. Alternate titles included: “Crop it to Me” and “Hip Crop Hooray”. I’d better get on with it before I come up with more and you all run away.
You’re probably long familiar with the traditional 8×10 print. You might have even noticed that when you’ve tried to print an 8×10, a portion of the image has had to be lopped off. It’s unavoidable, and quite a few of the “typical” print sizes actually require quite a bit of image cropping. I’ve put together a little visual guide to understanding just how much of an original (4×6 aspect ratio format) image is lost, so to speak when cropping.
Yep, that 8×10 and 20×24 sure lose quite a bit from the original, don’t they? I do generally keep image ratios in mind when shooting, to allow for cropping later. I do also offer prints in sizes such as 8×12 and 12×18 as well. And the days of only finding frames in size 8×10 are long over. I also offer Organic Bloom frames in every custom size imaginable.
See, now, that wasn’t too croppy, was it?Special thank you to Rachael Myers Photography for offering these awesome templates for photographers. Check her out!
