Photo Cropping Guide | How the photo size affects your image

Photographic prints come in all shapes and sizes but they are not all the same format. Below is a cropping guide showing my standard print and wall art sizes and how the format affects your image.

A few cropping tips & tricks

  • Choose creative crops for emphasis. A long narrow wall print will accentuate a stunning background. A Square print can draw the viewer into emotion of action in your image.

  • Allow a comfotrable margin of background around the subjects, don’t crop too close and give the subject somehwere to move or look out of the frame.

  • When cropping onto a person in close up, avoid cropping at a joint such as the knee, ankle, elbow or wrist.

I am happy to provide expert advice about how to crop and display your images, and hopefully this chart with help you visualise how your images will appear when they are printed.
