Photographic Print Sizes

Standard photographic print sizes are used in photographic printing. Cut sheets of paper meant for printing photographs are commonly sold in these sizes. They are often denoted with a code of the format nR, where the number n usually represents the length of the shorter edge in inches. In the normal series, the long edge is the length of the short edge plus 2 inches (10″ or less) or 3 inches (11″ and above). The alternative ‘Super’ series – denoted SnR – has an aspect ratio of 3:2 (or as close as possible) and thus provides a better fit for standard 135 film (35mm) at sizes of 8 inches or above. In Japan, the same print sizes (and several additional ones) are known by different names as detailed below. Unlike ISO standard paper sizes, the aspect ratios of photographic prints vary, so exact scaling of prints is not always possible.
