The layout a photo or jpg.image is printed. (We'll use Image for both)

Portrait format:

Portrait has it's height larger than it's width.

Landscape format:

If you take a Landscape Image and try to fit it to size in a portrait frame you will lose part of the original Image.

Sizing an image:

Once you have selected the product to have your image put on please take the time to determine whether you want the entire image on the product or a partial image.

For example:

(1) The image area is 4" high and 8" wide.
(2) The photo to product size is a Landscape, 8" H x 10" W or 8 1/2" H x 11" W.
(3) Send a second image with the cropped area and we will make it fit AS CLOSE AS WE CAN.
