Concerning the 2 x 2 inches photo
The requirements for documentary photos can be different, especially in terms of size and framing. If you want to obtain a professional photo that is suitable for various documents, generally the easiest solution is to choose a universal photo with pre-set size. For instance, for a given format: 2 x 2 inches - meaning 51 on 51 milimetres, you can use the cropping tool available on our page. In a few seconds we would adapt your photograph to the requirements of the office or institution.
Thanks to this simple procedure, you will save time and money on searching for a photography studio who will take professional photos for documents in the format you need. Not always at a photography studio there is the possibility to print photographs having dimensions of 2 on 2 inches or 51 x 51 milimetres, thus, using photo cropping tool with option of automatic framing may be the best solution.
Background of the 2 x 2 inches (51 by 51 mm) photograph
Commonly a document photograph should have a uniform background. The background colour itself can vary depending on the specific application. Commonly, however, it is a bright background, normally white (#ffffffff) or light grey (for example #fafafa), although, there can be a particular background requirement of red - #fa1612.

Proportions of the electronic form of the 2 by 2 inches photo

How to prepare yourself?
Distance from the camera
Take the photo from a distance of about 20 inches from your face. Ideally, the photo should be taken by another person.

Place your face in front of the lens and keep a neutral expression on your face. Hold the camera at face height.
Just stand facing a light source such as an exposed window. Don't worry about the background.
