Aspect Ratio – the dimensions of the image canvas or picture edge; the relationship of its width to its height.

SUGGESTED EXERCISE: Simply collect copy images from magazines and journals, gallery postcards, gallery leaflets, newspapers, and fliers. Draw or cut around the image so that you can measure each edge; the height and the width. The aspect ratio is the comparison of one measurement to the other.
