You have probably ordered or printed an 8x10 before and wondered 'why does it look so different from the original image?'
The answer is: the crop ratio changes with each photo size.
This means that a 5x7 image will look different than an 8x10 - there will be a slight crop on two sides (top and bottom for portrait orientation and left and right for landscape orientation) of the image.
Sometimes it is hard to explain this so I decided to give you a visual tool to understand this better. It will help you when you get prints done at any time.
To visualize this you can use the graphic below as a reference. This chart compares a 5x7 print as the original cropping ratio to the rest of the sizes and showcases how cropping would occur.
When you order from me I will manually crop for you to ensure that cropping does not alter with the image's original composition and I will also let you know if an image is not suitable for a certain print size/ratio.
However when you order prints from a website or a print store you need to be aware that cropping may just occur in a different place than what you had envisioned. Please contact me if you have any questions about crop ratio.
