Border options for horizontal images

Horizontal images often have a great look, but actors often struggle with the border selection when it comes time to reproduce the head shots. It has been known that casting directors, agents and managers do NOT like to have to figure out the orientation of a head shot. Therefore, most heads shots are in fact vertical. However, that shouldn’t stop you from printing your favorite image, which happens to be horizontal. :-) The four basic options for horizontal images are:

  1. Horizontal : this will give you the largest image without cropping. A true horizontal layout.
  2. Window Box: this takes the horizontal format and prints it on a vertical orientation. This eliminates the need of turning or flipping the photo. Larger borders are apparent.
  3. Two-Way Bleed: this is similar to the window box, but maximizes the space. No borders on the sides, giving you a larger image
  4. Cropped to Vertical: A significant amount of the left and right sides of the image is cropped for a true vertical image. NOTE: it can only work if the original subject is far back enough to crop from the sides.

You can see the cropping samples below. We can also do a special crop or border to suit your photo.
