Paper Size and Orientation

Potrait

Landscape

To remember which is which, think of a portrait - narrow and long to fit the person in.


Think of a landscape, needing a wide picture to fit in the scene.

Whether a piece of paper or card is placed long way up or across is called portrait or landscape.
