AuthorSubject: Ovals   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Are there any "standards" for oval pictures? I have done some digging on this and find little in the way of guidelines.

I get a fair number of requests for putting images in an oval shape or in an oval vignette. I know there are oval mat cutters out there but some are fixed in size and some can cut ovals in any proportion desired. Some mats are rectangular with an oval cutout, some are oval for oval frames, with an oval cutout. One mat cutter gives dimensions for the print, the oval cutout, and the overall dimensions for the mat. Cutouts are typically a half-inch smaller than the image.

In some cases I am working with a damaged image and putting it in an oval lets me save good information and discard damaged information to advantage. Being able to vary the width and height of the oval selection lets me take maximum advantage of this feature. At the same time I want the client to be able to get the final image framed nicely so I worry about whether the oval I chose will lend itself to being easily framed.
