    There's also "Wide (16:9)", which is often used in cinema, especially Westerns, to make a grand visual experience
    .
    It's good for images of vast landscapes and things like that.

    We also have "Square (1:1)"

    We can see how big the screen is with that now
    .
    This lets us crop our photos, which can be very useful. It helps to give an image or photo a different perspective. If we just take photos in the same way all the time, it may lack a bit of variety. Using the crop option can be useful, especially for framing and taking more interesting photos. Play around with all of these different ratios and see which ones work best for which photos. Experiment and try to improve your photographic ability.
