Cropping your images

Chuck Vosburgh - Friday, December 06, 2013

Have you ever had to cut off something you like to make your image fit a standard size print? Here's how to plan ahead for cropping

Most camera sensors are a 2:3 ratio which fits some paper perfectly and others, not so much. Here's a breakdown of how it works with all the popular size prints:

4x6

5x7

8x10

11x14

16x20

20x24

20x30

30x40

40x60

So, the sizes that match your sensor and require no cropping are:

  • 4x6
  • 20x30
  • 40x60

All the other require some cropping to fit, so when you're shooting give yourself a little extra room around the edges.
