Traditional photo sizes refer to the standard and commonly used dimensions for printed photographs before the widespread use of digital photography. These sizes are still prevalent today, especially for printing physical copies of digital images. Some of the most common traditional photo sizes in our catalogue include:
2.5 x 3.5 inches
3.5 x 5 inches
4 x 6 inches
5 x 7 inches
6 x 8 inches
8 x 10 inches
These sizes represent the most popular options for printing and displaying photographs, particularly for personal use, family albums, and framing individual or group portraits. When printing photos at retail stores or through online services, these sizes are often readily available options. The aspect ratio of traditional photo sizes may vary slightly, but most of them are close to 3:2 or 4:3, depending on the specific dimensions.
It’s worth noting that digital photography and the use of smartphones have expanded the range of photo sizes and formats. With the advent of digital printing and more advanced printing technologies, you can now print photographs in custom sizes and aspect ratios to suit various artistic and creative needs. However, the traditional photo sizes mentioned above continue to be widely used and remain the standard for many everyday photo printing purposes.
