Landscape format

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Landscape format is a rectangular page orientation in which the width, or horizontal dimension, is larger than the height, or vertical dimension, as is common in landscape art. Movies have a landscape orientation, which is why all theater and TV screens are landscape. Today's HDTV sets are more landscape accentuated than in the days of the more square CRTs. The opposite is "portrait" format, which is tall and narrow, as is common in images of a person.
