Excellent service. Very good software that enhanced our photos. They also did a manual check and had me redo one of the pictures for free. I have only used online passport photos for more than 10 years. This is by far the best.

Concerning the 4 x 4 centimetres photo

The requirements for documentary photographs can be different, in particular in terms of size and framing. If you want to obtain a professional photo that is suitable for different documents, usually the easiest solution is to choose a universal photograph with pre-set size. For instance, for a given format: 4 x 4 cm - meaning 40 on 40 mm, you can use the cropping tool available on our page. Within a few seconds we will adapt your photograph to the requirements of the office or institution. Thanks to this easy procedure, you will save money and time on searching for a photography studio who will take professional photographs for documents in the size you need. Not always at a photography studio there is the possibility to print photos having dimensions of 4 on 4 cm or 40 x 40 milimetres, therefore, using photo generator tool with option of automatic framing may be the best solution.

4 x 4 cm (40 by 40 mm) Photo background

As a rule a document photo should have a uniform background. The background colour itself can vary depending on the specific application.
