Print Aspect Ratios

On this page, we explain the different aspect ratios of the prints that we sell and how we crop photographs.

When you zoom-in on a photograph on our site, you are viewing the native photograph in it’s native aspect ratio. All of the photographs on our site are taken with digital cameras. The native aspect ratio for most digital cameras is 2x3.

When you order a print from us and select a size that is marked as “native”, your print will consist of the entire photograph taken by the camera. The following image is an example of a “native” un-cropped photograph.

When you order a 5x7 aspect ratio, we crop the native photograph to match the 5x7 aspect ratio. This results in portions of the original photograph being cut-off. When cropping, we try to remove areas of the photograph that are “white space” or not critical to the subject matter of the photograph. The image below shows how we might crop a photograph to fit a 5x7 aspect ratio. The darker areas of the image below indicate what portions of the photograph we’d crop.

Likewise when you order a 4x5 aspect ratio, we crop the native photograph to match the 4x5 aspect ratio. The image below shows how we might crop a photograph to fit a 4x5 aspect ratio. The darker areas of the image below indicate what portions of the photograph we’d crop.
