Thread: What's your favourite print size?

    Default What's your favourite print size?

    I've been playing around with some photos and am trying to decide on what size to crop / print for an album. Assuming that sharpness/resolution isn't a concern, what's your recommendation on 8x10 vs. 8x12 (or other)?

    I don't exactly have a single favorite print size. But the sizes that I have my photos printed to most of the time are 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, and 8x12.

    if you're going for costs and simplicity, i say 4R is cheap at bulk volume.

    however, if you're going to hang it on the walls, S8R to A3 is more recommended.

    printing is one thing, but finding frames to fit them is another.

    Majority of my photos are printed in 4R, all inside photo albums.
    Some are printed in 5R, and these are for photo frames that adorn my walls and tables.
    There are a few of my favourite photos that I printed in S8R.

    Nowadays, my wife usually do montage of the suitable sizes for each picture on an A4 and print at home. keeps her happy, and me having the chance to go & take more photos.

    That's the beauty of digital. we are no longer restricted with the standard sizes offered by labs. You can crop into different shapes and sizes. Of course, my printout may not be up to professional standards, but those are for memories only.

    S8R/S10R is good for special display. 4R is for volume archival.

    Thats a very subjective comment. People have different applications for each size.
