At MailPix we understand that images come in all different sizes. Whether you take photos with a camera or smart phone we have all the custom options you need in one place. That's why we've created a user-friendly site to make the online photo ordering process fast and simple! MailPix offers different print sizes to help you print your image with little to no cropping. Although the aspect ratio of your image may vary, you can still order MailPix Prints in any size without cropping your photos.

Compact Cameras and Smart Phones

Minimize cropping when printing your digital images using our true digital prints.

Smart Phones and most compact cameras usually capture images using a 4:3 Aspect Ratio sensor. The image is slightly more square in shape compared to a 4x6 print. When ordering prints, many sizes will crop your original image file. As a result, MailPix Offers 4x5.3" and 6x8" digital format prints for little to no cropping.

Other sizes that will fit a digital format print with minimal cropping are: 8x10, 11x14, 16x20, 20x24 & 24x30

DSLR Cameras and 35mm Film

Gather your digital images from your camera and upload them to MailPix for quality prints.

The 4x6 print size emerged due to 35mm Film and the need for a full frame, uncropped print. Today most Digital SLRs capture images in a 3:2 Aspect Ratio, which is the same as a 35mm Film negative. Because of this, our 4x6 photos are a great option.

Other sizes that will fit a 3:2 apsect ratio print with little to no cropping are: 5x7, 12x18, 16x24, 20x30 & 24x36

Cropping Photos on MailPix

The Aspect Ratio of your images do not have to limit you to specific print sizes when using MailPix. If for any reason you order a print size that will crop your image, our site will let you know! Prior to checking out, our "Review & Crop Your Prints" page (Shown Below) allows you to choose how your images will be cropped so you can ensure you do not lose the subject of your photo. Just Resize and/or drag the green box around your image to choose which part of the image will be printed.
