More about Photo 50x70 Milimetres (5x7 Centimetres) - Requirements

The 50 x 70 millimeter photo format

Depending on the document you are going to apply for, the size of the photograph may differ a lot. Sometimes the easiest way is to choose a universal photo in digital form that you can later adjust to any format you need, e.g. 50 x 70 mm. Our automatic cropping tool will help you do this. A correctly prepared, print-ready, universal size photo can be used as the photo for an official document. You can obtain the photograph through our app or website - Passport Photo Online. Instead of using the photo generator you can also visit your nearest photo service, which offers printing pictures in the 50 x 70 mm (5 x 7 cm) format. Without a doubt, however, this is a more time-consuming and more expensive solution. Hence it's worth using a photo framing tool.

The 50 x 70 millimeter (5 by 7 cm) photo background

Commonly, a document photo should have a uniform background. The background color itself may differ depending on the specific document. However, usually it’s a light, often white (#ffffffff) background, or light gray (for instance #f5f5f5). In some cases, there may be a particular requirement regarding a red (#fa1212) background. With the photo generator you can get a photo with a uniform light background. All you have to do is upload any photograph to the form above and our Background Removal Tool will do its job, giving you a picture against the correct backdrop

The 50 x 70 mm photo equivalents

The equivalents of a 50 x 70 millimeter size photograph are:

  • 5 x 7 centimeter photo (i.e. 5 cm in width and 7 cm in height)
  • 1,97 x 2,76 inch photograph (i.e. 1,97 inches in width and 2,76 inches in height)

Digital form proportions of the 50 by 70 millimeter photo

In the case of photos in digital version only, it is crucial to maintain the right proportions, i.e. the ratio of the 50 millimeter width to the 70 millimeter height. Depending on the resolution (dpi) of the printout, these may differ considerably regarding sizes expressed in pixels (px). For example:

  • for dpi=100 resolution: 197 x 276 px (width = 197 pixels, and height 276 pixels)
  • for dpi=300 resolution: 591 x 827 px (width = 591 px, and height 827 pixels)
  • for dpi=600 resolution: 1181 x 1654 px (width = 1181 px, and height 1654 pixels)
