Photo print sizes

0 267

Many people would swear that there is some magic to the photo prints, those immortalised memories protected from the fallibility of our human minds. Although we live in a digital era and can fill our computer disks with thousands of images, nothing compares to the classic photos.

To sit with an old, dusty album in your lap and flip through the  pages of your very own history book is a moment which many of us  cherish. It is almost an act of celebration, to being able to physically  interact with a tactile, substantial piece of paper, to feel its texture under your fingers and, last but not least, to be able to place  tiny photographs of your beloved ones in your wallet.

These are  some of the reasons why you may want to familiarise yourself with photo  print sizes. Although you can have your photographs printed in any size  you wish, there are some typical dimensions, which are popular and easy  to fit into standard photo frames or albums.

1. Digital cameras take pictures in different sizes than the traditional ones: 24” x 16", 12” x 8", 8” x 5.3", 8” x 10.6”, 7.5” x 4" etc. That’s why digital photos need to be modified before printing.
