  • Available in glossy or mat
  • Brilliant colours
  • Durable lightfast

Options

Mat or glossy? It’s all down to your personal taste!

There are two finishes available. Both versions offer the same high quality!

Mat photographic paper

Thanks to the mat finish, there is less light reflection when light shines directly onto the surface. This means that mat photographic paper retains its high-quality appearance even in difficult lighting conditions and whatever the viewing angle. What’s more, the paper is less prone to fingerprints.

Glossy photo paper

Glossy photo paper has an extremely smooth surface. This gives your pictures a high-contrast and colour-intensive look. Also, the colours in your shots have the maximum possible brightness.


Cropping

Make the right crop to get the perfect result!

The various formats used by traditional cameras in contrast to digital cameras often create confusion. The latter usually use a digital image format with an aspect ratio of 3:4, while traditional cameras use a 1.4'' format with an aspect ratio of 2:3. The formerly well-known 1.4'' format of approximately 4 x 6'' has been replaced in the digital world by the digital image format of approximately 4 x 5''.


Explanation of the cropping options:


Variable image length / no cropping (default)


Photos that you order via the Photo Service are adapted to the aspect ratio of the image file so that the image is not cropped (to the extent that this is technically possible).

To prevent white edges from occurring during the exposure, the image is enlarged by up to three percent before exposure (over projection).

Depending on the aspect ratio of your image file, this will give variable paper size (image length) within certain limits:

  • Prints in 9er format from approx. 3.5 x 3.5'' to max. approx. 3.5 x 6.3''
  • Prints in 10er format from approx. 3.9 x 3.9'' to max. approx. 3.9 x 7.1''
  • Prints in 13er format from approx. 5.1 x 5.1'' to max. approx. 5.1 x 8.3''
  • Prints in 20er format from approx. 7.9 x 7.9 to max. approx. 7.9 x 11.8''

Classic 2:3 format
The classic image format is usually used for picture frames and photo albums (with photo flaps or photo corners). The photos you order via the Photo Service are adjusted automatically to the paper size. If the aspect ratio of your image file is not 2:3, the photo will be automatically enlarged until there are no white edges. This means that a part of the image will be cropped off (scissors icon: Edit image section).
To prevent white edges from occurring during the exposure, the image section is enlarged by up to three percent before exposure (over projection).

The paper sizes are as follows:

  • Prints in 9er format approx. 3.5 x 5.1''
  • Prints in 10er format approx. 3.9 x 5.9''
  • Prints in 13er format approx. 5.1 x 7.1''
  • Prints in 20er format approx. 7.9 x 11.8''

Digital 3:4 format

The photos you order via the Photo Service are adjusted automatically to the paper size. If the aspect ratio of your image file is not 3:4, the photo will be automatically enlarged until there are no white edges. This means that a part of the image will be cropped off (scissors icon: Edit image section).
To prevent white edges from occurring during the exposure, the image section is enlarged by up to three percent before exposure (over projection).

 

The paper sizes are as follows:

  • Prints in 9er format approx. 3.5 x 4.7''
  • Prints in 10er format approx. 3.9 x 5.1''
  • Prints in 13er format approx. 5.1 x 6.7''
  • Prints in 20er format approx. 7.9 x 10.6''


You can find more information on:
Over projection
When preparing your image file, you should bear in mind that up to three percent of the image/image section will be cropped and thus not visible on the print. This can be particularly important, for example, if you add lettering to the edge of the picture.
Conversion inch/cm
The designations 10x15, 9x13, etc. are colloquial designations.

 

The paper sizes for the aspect ratio 2:3 are as follows (the sizes have been rounded). The differences arise from the

conversion of the dimensions from inches to cm:

  • 9x13 = approx. 8.9x13.3 cm = 3.5 x 5.25 inches
  • 10x15 = approx. 10.2x15.2 cm = 4 x 6 inches
  • 13x18 = approx. 12.7x18.1 cm = 5 x 7 inches
  • 20x30 = approx. 20.3x30.5 cm = 8 x 12 inches

In the photographic industry, the inch dimensions (originating from the USA) are standard. This results in the paper widths 8.9 cm, 10.2 cm, etc. In German-speaking countries, these are referred to as 9 cm, 10 cm, etc. for the sake of simplicity.
