Understanding Print Sizes

 

Most photos I upload are in an aspect ratio of 2x3.  This means if you order a 4x6 or 8x12 print, everything you see in the picture will be printed from corner to corner.  However, if you want a 5x7 or an 8x10 print, some parts of the photo will have to be cut off.  During the ordering process, you are in control of how the image is 'cropped'.  Use the pictures below to see how various print sizes will determine the amount of the original picture you can print. 

What's inside the red lines will print; anything outside the lines (dimmer area) will not print.  When you order, you can 'drag' the 'box' created by the red lines anywhere within the entire frame.

Portrait Orientation

As illustrated above, a 4x6, 5x7, 8x10 or 8x12 print could easily fit the whole deer in portrait orientation.  If you flipped the box to horizontal though, you'll cut off the poor deer's legs.  I wouldn't recommend flipping images into horizontal (landscape) orientation that started in portrait orientation.
