How do I get a specific photo print format?

As explained under the aspect ratio section, the measurements of your print depend on standard paper widths adopted in the photographic industry, as well as on your image’s aspect ratios. You require a photo print with self-selected measurements. How does that work?

Paper measurements

As a rule of thumb, we always try to expose the entire image to ratio, as large as possible, to your selected format. The table below outlines the minimum and maximum paper measurements per print format. As you can see, the short side is always fixed and the long side is variable.

Please note: The exception to this rule is size 10×15. As you can see, here the long side is fixed and the short side is variable.

We do not automatically trim Ilford Galerie paper (13×19, 20×30 and 30×45). You will, of course, receive the photo in the correct aspect ratio, and we always print the entire image. It’s just the photo will be a little shorter than e.g. 13×19, and we white-fill the extra space on the paper, meaning you receive the photo with white borders that you can then trim yourself.
