Hello there,
I apologise if this question has been asked before. I am thinking of putting a portfolio together and would like to know what the best print size would be?
Thank you, cheers Pam

I am pressuming this is to showcase your work?

If so 10 X 8 minimum, But you might as well go for A4, But either one will depend on your intended Portfollio medium.

Hi Pam, Your most welcome anytime, Had a quick look at your PF, And note that you shoot a lot of Macro ( Very nice work too ) So I'd be inclined to go with the A4 option, Most papers come in A4, Printers are geared for A4, And it will show your work of much better, Again as I said this depends on the media you use for the Portfolio, But as a rule of thumb bigger is better as interested parties see it in it's whole glory, So to speak.

You could take a look at a site called " Photobox " They offer various means of creating a book like product of your prints, they come in Hard & Softback versions, We have had some done by them and they really do look very proffesional.

Prices are very reasonable & the quality is superb.

Good luck
