Photo 35x45 mm (3,5x4,5 Centimetres) - All You Need to Know

The 45 mm x 35 mm photo - a guide

Depending on which document you wish to apply for, the required photo size may vary. One easy way of making sure you have the right size is to use a universal template, in a specific size, which can be used when applying for multiple documents, for example, a 45 mm x 35 mm photo will allow you to apply for multiple types of passport(requiring a 35mm x 45mm passport photo) and even some visas.

Our photo maker will help you with this, allowing automatic cropping of uploaded photos, to give the right dimensions, every time. The photos that result can be attached to any application that takes photos of that size. You can get the picture on our website, Passport Photo Online, which can automatically resize your photo to 35 mm x 45 mm online, without you even needing to leave your house. You will then be able to purchase a 45 mm x 35 mm photo template, ready to add to your desired document application.

35 mm x 45 mm photo background

Normally, a photograph for official documents needs to have a uniform background. The background colour itself can vary, depending on the specific document you wish to apply for. As a general rule, however, it will be a neutral colour, usually a light grey or white background, however, it may be possible for your photo to require a different coloured background - maybe even red!

With’s photo maker, you can get a photo with a uniform light-coloured background. Simply upload any photo of yourself to our website and our Background Removal Tool will get to work. Within seconds, you will get a digital passport photo with the perfect background. Soon, we will also include an option to choose a specific background colour. If you need a different coloured background now, please contact us at [email protected].
