    landscape vs portrait

    Why is the physical size if a landscape image so much larger than that of a portrait? Landscape images are 83.333Lx55.556H where as portrait images are only 13.333Wx20H. Why is portrait

    It's a function of the sensor size. 35mm film format is 36X24mm

    Thank you for your reply. I still don't understand because the sensor size does no change just because I changed the orientation.

    My guess is your comparing two images where one has been edited and resized.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.

    Hmmm ... I think I may have figured it out. I've been using Windows thumbnail viewer to rotate images instead of using Photoshop canvas orientation. I'll have to do some experimenting.

    Must be something like that because images right out of the camera should have the same pixel dimensions, regardless of orientation, all other things being equal.
