How does Photoshop treat a perfectly square image? Are they considered a Portrait or Landscape? I need to automate some image processing and I need to filter out perfectly square (aspect ratio 1:1) images for separate handling.

  • I don't know that it does differentiate either way. What's stopping you form just looking at the width/height and determining it that way? – Hanna May 4 '15 at 21:51
  • My guess is that in PS it could be either (though technically both are wrong) – Zach Saucier May 5 '15 at 12:51
  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's asking how a program works, not about design – Zach Saucier May 5 '15 at 12:51
  • But it is a design question. I started thinking about this in regard to automation, but started wondering about why automation routines only allow 2 choices: landscape or portrait. I agree that perfectly square images should be in a third category. – clarkland May 6 '15 at 0:32
  • Because squares work the same regardless of setting. So a square is both landscape and portrait at the same time. – joojaa May 6 '15 at 7:29
