About the 2 x 2 inches photo

One of the most popular options at a photography studio is to order a universal photo in digital or printed form. This is a photo with preset dimensions, in this case with a width of 2 inches and height of 2 inches. This means that the dimensions are 51 mm by 51 mm. Such a photograph may be taken not only by a photographer, but also by yourself. All you have to do is frame it correctly. The easiest way to get this effect is to attach the picture to the form above. Passport Photo Online will help you with a cropping tool, allowing you automatic cropping of photos in a fast and professional way. Using framing tools you will get a printable picture with dimensions of 2 by 2 inches, without any problem. This will save you time, which you would otherwise have to spend searching for a photographer who would take photos in these specific dimensions.
