◄+►What is the aspect ratio of an image? Why is it important?
►The aspect ratio of an image is the ratio of the width of the image to its height. The same is true for the photo paper sizes. Optimum(correctly selected) image printing takes place when the aspect ratio of the image is equal to the aspect ratio of the size of the photo paper it is to be printed on. If no optimum printing has taken place, the printed image will be surrounded by the frame of unused paper and its size might be far from minimal. To select the size of the paper to print on correctly, please make that simple aspect ratio calculation to avoid possible mismatching complications, for which we will not be liable. In any case the image will not be cut and its print will be aligned around the center of the paper.
