Default Mailing 8X10 photos to inmate in Federal prison?

I would like to send a family photo to my husband in Coleman Low. The photo is 8x10 in size. Has anyone sent an 8x10 photo to a federal inmate? Are they allowed in that size or will I need to make the photo smaller? Thanks!

I received both large photos, and 81/2 X 11 inch printouts of internet articles that were sent to me in 9 X 12 envelopes without any problems.

I've printed photos onto 8.5 by 11 paper and they went through just fine.

I've only sent 4x6 photos because that's the only size that fits in his photo album. I have sent homemade "hangups" (inspirational quotes, sayings, etc.) that he can post on his wall (8.5x11) and mailed them in larger manila envelopes no problem.
