Understanding Photo Ratios
To do this, first, you’ll need to gain an understanding of photo ratios.
Selecting the right ratio for you photo wall print is so important because crucial elements in your photo may be cropped to fit the ratio (as you see with the bird’s beak).
Your camera shoots photos with a specific ratio. When you choose to print at a different ratio, then the original photo will need to be cropped either horizontally or vertically. This means that an important part of your photo may be lost.
How to check the ratio of your photo
To calculate the ratio of your photo start by dividing its width (in pixels) by its height (in pixels). If the total is not a whole number (also called an integer), multiply it by another number until it is. These two numbers (the number you used to multiply it and the final total) are the ratio of the photo.
Now you’ve gained an understanding of photo ratios….
