The most common photo sizes include 4 inches by 6 inches, 8 inches by 10 inches, 5 inches by 7 inches and 11 inches by 14 inches. Smaller sizes can be used for wallets, while larger sizes progress to desk photographs and wall or hallway images.
Photos that measure 4 inches by 6 inches are common for postcards, while photos of 5 inches by 7 inches are widely used in picture frames. An 8-by-10 photo is a common choice for an entertainment headshot or a portrait. Finally, an 11-by-14 photo may consist of an 8-by-10 image with 3 inches of border around it.
