It is important to choose the proper print size for the place where you want to display it. The farther viewers will stand from the picture, the larger it should be. A common rule of thumb: viewing distance = twice the diagonal measurement of the print. For instance, if the photo is displayed in a narrow hallway, you should not choose a very large format cause the viewers can only step back so far as the small hallway allows them to, so it could make more sense to choose multiple smaller prints. For prints displayed above the sofa, however, you should not choose too small of a size, since you will most likely view the photo at a distance, so in this case the print can be 60 cm or more.
|Formats||Viewing distance (suggestion)|
|20 x 30 cm||not closer than 0.7 m|
|30 x 45 cm||not closer than 1.1 m|
|40 x 60 cm||not closer than 1.4 m|
|50 x 75 cm||not closer than 2.2 m|
|70 x 105 cm||not closer than 3.0 m|
