Picture Frame Orientations

Portrait Orientation

    Portrait Wood Frame

The frame pictured here represents a portrait frame with a narrower width than the height. This is indicated in the dimension, with the first number being the smaller number.

Example: 8 x 10.

Landscape Orientation

Landscape Wood Frame

This frame, on the other hand, represents a landscape view. So the first number in its dimension would be the larger number because the horizontal measurement is wider than the height.

Example:  10 x 8.
