5. How to measure your piece of art

General
Several type of editions exist, which is important for measuring your piece:
1) a edition with an irregular image and no background color (in most cases
this means an image printed on a white paper as background);
2) a edition with a rectangular image and a border (in most cases this
means an image with a colored background printed on a white paper);
3) a edition with a rectangular image and no border (in most cases this
means an image with a colored background printed on paper with exactly
the same size as the image).

1) Edition with an irregular image and no background color
Paper
– measure the left and right side of the paper, and calculate the average
vertical side.
– measure the top and bottom side of the paper, and calculate the average
horizontal side.

Image
– measure from the maximum top to the maximum bottom for the vertical
side.
– measure from the maximum left to the maximum right for the horizontal
side.

Example measurement of Image

Image size is area between imaginary lines (max left-right & max top-bottom)

2) Edition with a rectangular image and a border
Paper/Image
– measure the left and right side of the paper/image, and calculate the
average vertical side.
– measure the top and bottom side of the paper/image, and calculate the
average horizontal side.

3) Edition with a rectangular image and no border
Same as 2, with the difference that image size = paper size.
