Whether displayed in a corporate office or enhancing the ambiance of a home decor, panoramic photo prints have the power to dramatically transform the aesthetics of any room. These panoramic images work wonderfully as standalone pieces of wall art, but they also look incredible when grouped with other photos to create an eye-catching gallery wall.
Panoramic photos often feature images of landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes.They provide a wider field of view compared to typical photos, allowing the photographer to capture a scene that aligns more accurately with human vision rather than the limited perspective of a standard camera lens.
In this article, we'll discuss where and how you can print panoramic photos. Whether you're printing for a personal project or professional purposes, we'll guide you through the best choices available for your panoramic prints.
At Posterjack, we pride ourselves on our extensive variety of photo art products. From classic Canvas Prints, perfect for a touch of elegance in your living room, to modern HD Metal Prints that can become striking pieces of wall art, our selection is designed to cater to diverse aesthetic needs.
Finding the perfect medium to display your panoramic photos as stunning works of art becomes effortless with us. Here are some reasons why Posterjack stands out as the premier choice for printing your panoramic photos.
Made in Canada
Posterjack is 100% Canadian owned and operated, and because we’re committed to creating nothing but the best quality photo art, everything is made in-house from our Toronto headquarters.
Our Proprietary PJ-PRINT™ Software
Using an advanced interpolation algorithm, we can print your photos super-crisp at a large scale. Our software delivers better results than you would get by resampling a digital image in Photoshop or other editing software.
Made to Last a Lifetime
We use premium inks that are rated for 100+ years of fade resistance and continually invest in state-of-the-art equipment to ensure we’re delivering the best products on the market.
Like our equipment, the materials we print your photos on are second to none. Our Fine Art Prints, for example, are made with Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper, which is a high-quality paper used by professional photographers around the world.
Another example is our Canvas Prints, which are made using the best quality poly-cotton canvas and basswood, and has been instrumental in helping us become known as the Photo Art Experts by Canadians across the country.
Photo Quality Rating
When you upload a photo to our website, you’re automatically provided with a photo quality rating.
This will help give you a better idea on what to expect before you print, and if your photo quality is unacceptable, our system won’t allow you to proceed with your order.
Our priority is ensuring you’re happy with the quality of your print!
Arrives Ready to Hang
After your panoramic photo is printed, we carefully package it up and ship it out. You’ll receive a shipping notification with a tracking number, so you’ll know when it’s due to arrive.
Even better, if you’ve ordered photo art that includes a hanging system, we will expertly install it for you before sending it, so it’s ready to display the moment you unpack it from its box.
Although panoramic photos can be printed in different sizes, they’ll generally have an aspect ratio of 2:1 or larger, meaning the width of the photo is at least twice as long as its height.
Although Posterjack can print your panoramic photos in several different sizes, they will be at a 2:1, 3:1, or 4:1 aspect ratio.
The actual print size options will vary, depending on the photo art product you choose. For example, you can have a huge 40”x120” panoramic Poster Print made, but the largest panoramic Canvas Print size available is 20”x60” (or 30”x60” if you want a 2:1 double-width aspect ratio).
Don’t Have a Panoramic Photo?
If you have a photo that isn’t a panoramic but wish to print it at the 2:1, 3:1, or 4:1 aspect ratio, you can upload it to our website and choose the panoramic print size you’d like.
Your image will be automatically cropped to the chosen print size, which you can then play around with to see if you can crop it in a way you’d like to have it printed.

Plus, they often offer quicker turnaround times, making them a great option for those on a tighter schedule.
How to Print Panoramic Photos?
Printing panoramic photos isn't different from printing regular photos, but it does require a few specific considerations due to the unique aspect ratio.
Here's a step-by-step guide to help you print your panoramic photos successfully with Posterjack:
- Capture the Right Image: To start, ensure your photo is suitable for a panoramic print. This might involve taking a wide landscape photo or stitching several photos together using photo editing software to create the desired panoramic effect.
- Select the Right Aspect Ratio: The aspect ratio of a panoramic photo is generally 2:1 or larger. This means the width of the image is at least twice as long as its height. Some images might need cropping to fit this aspect ratio. When you're cropping, ensure you maintain the image's integrity and composition.
- Choose the Right Resolution: The quality of your print is directly related to the resolution of the original image. Higher resolution photos will result in sharper prints. Make sure your photo resolution is high enough for the size of the print you want to achieve. If your photo's resolution is too low, it might look pixelated or blurry when printed, especially at larger sizes.
- Select Your Product at Posterjack: Visit Posterjack's website and select the type of print product you want for your panoramic photo. Posterjack offers a variety of print mediums like Canvas Prints, HD Metal Prints, and more.
- Upload Your Photo: After selecting your desired print product, upload your photo to Posterjack's website. Their system will automatically provide a photo quality rating to help you understand what to expect from your print.
- Customize Your Order: Once your image is uploaded, select your print size based on the 2:1, 3:1, or 4:1 aspect ratios. If your photo isn't originally in a panoramic format, the system will automatically crop it based on your chosen print size.
- Place Your Order: After customizing your print, add it to your cart and proceed to checkout. Fill in your shipping information, and Posterjack will carefully package your print and ship it to you. Most orders arrive ready to hang, making it even easier for you to display your stunning new panoramic photo.
Whether it's a vibrant cityscape, a serene seascape, or a peaceful rural landscape, your panoramic photos deserve to be showcased in the best possible way.
At Posterjack, we use only the finest materials and advanced technology to ensure your panoramic photos are printed with crisp details, vivid colors, and the highest resolution.
