OK – the last one in the title was a joke – R-D-R-R (get it, ha-de-ha-ha).
I sometimes get frustrated with the way that others crop my photos, so I’ve developed some templates, and I’ve included a grid in them so that I can try and fiddle with placement and the rule of thirds.
Below is a table of common photographic sizes and the pixel sizes required to print each size. It is important to be aware that your camera doesn’t usually take photos in these sizes, and sometimes the action at the sides or top and bottom of an image can be cropped.
I’ve recently been printing in 8R format, so I have some templates:
- For Photoshop users – 8R Landscape and 8R Portrait
- For everyone else – PNG Files: 8R Landscape and 8R Portrait
