When ordering a rectangular Modern Frame, some of your image may be cropped if the aspect ratio is not correct in your original file. To fit your entire photo, please follow the guidelines below:
- 8x10 print, crop your photo to a ratio of 4:5
- 11x14 print, crop your photo to a ratio of 11:14
- 16x20 print, crop your photo to a ratio of 4:5
Minimum resolution sizes for our 3 largest framed prints:
- 8x10 print: 800x1000 pixels
- 11x14 print: 1100x1400 pixels
- 16x20 print: 1600x200 pixels
Modern Frames are matted, and matting can crop the images closer than our cropping tools can preview. We recommend leaving 0.25" of space between any subject and the crop line to ensure all crucial parts of your photo are visible.
How will I know my photo will print well?
Our uploader will block photos that are too small for a particular print size, but it is unable to tell if a photo is blurry, pixelated, or taken in low light. These are all factors that can cause a correctly sized photo to not print as well. A good way to tell if your photo will print well on a larger scale is to check the resolution. We print at 300 dpi and photos at or near this resolution will print best.
If you are still nervous, you can perform what we call the "zoom test" on your image prior to upload. Open up your photo on your computer's photo viewer, and zoom in a little bit. If you are seeing pixelation when you zoom, this will also show up in print.
As a general rule, we recommend printing photos that are taken in natural light. Indoor photos at low light can look fuzzy. Check out our photo editing guide that will help you choose and edit your photos for the best possible prints. Still feeling hesitant to print?

How do I print in landscape?
To rotate your image so that it will be printed landscape, upload the image then hover over the uploaded photo with your mouse. This will bring up the “Crop” button. You'll see a window pop-up that will allow you to "Rotate Selection”. Click this button and adjust the crop.
