Yes, I suppose there are three groups of image sizing now and they tend to be operating at cross-purposes......
Photographic - which is, unless taken on a medium format or bigger camera, 4:3.
Paper - generally the A, B or C 'codes' (A0 to A6 and the various specialist labels, envelopes etc) - used in almost all the world but, of course, the USA (and therefore Canada too) use "Letter sizes" and other variants (but then the USA still uses gallons and don't bother asking for a kilo or liter of anything).
Framing - although you can get appropriate sizes of mattes and frames from specialist shops, the High Street shops still mainly work on 8x10s and other traditional ratios.
