What are the Best Photo Albums to Suit Enlargement Photos?

In today's digital age, it's easy to forget the power of printed photos. While scrolling through your phone or computer screen may be convenient, there is something truly special about holding a physical photograph in your hands. And the best part? Photos can also be printed in larger sizes and formats for even more impressive results.

You don't have to stop at traditional sized photo prints - there are endless possibilities when it comes to printing photos in unique formats. For example, large-scale posters, panoramic prints, and enlargement photo prints. From stunning wedding photos to family portraits, seeing these images in a larger format allows you to truly appreciate their details.

Photo Albums


Most of us who are familiar with photo printing will have printed hundreds (if not thousands) of photos at our local photo retailer. Some of you may not be aware that the actual size and name of this standard size photo print is a 4x6 inch (10x15cm) and finding a photo album to store these photos is easy, as every retailer that sells photo albums will sell this photo size compatible photo album.

But what are the best photos albums that will suit enlargement photos? Let's take a look!

What are the Most Common Photo Enlargement Sizes?

Any photo print size that is larger than a 4x6 inch (10x15cm) is considered an enlargement size photo. The most common photo enlargement sizes available are:

What are the Best Photo Albums to Suit Enlargement Photos?

Those of us who choose to enlarge our photos (or have received enlargement photos from friends or family) may face the problem of finding a photo album that suits your enlargement photos.

The help solve this problem, at Profile Australia, we have identified three photo album solutions available to you. 

  1. Enlargement Size Slip-in Photo Albums

There are a number of enlargement size Slip-in photo albums available within our range. They include a 5x7 inch slip-in (also referred to as a photo pocket album) and also a 6x8 inch slip-in photo album, with different photo capacity.

2. Drymount Photo Albums

A Drymount photo album (also referred to as a pergamyn or traditional style photo album) features blank pages with glassine interleaving (sometimes referred to as rice-paper) between each page to separate each page and protect your photos.

Drymount photo albums have an advantage over Slip-in albums in that they allow for flexible mounting and positioning of photos onto the album page. They also allow for multiple enlargement sizes within the same page or album. The maximum photo size will be governed by the usable page area of the photo album.
