More about Photo 40x50 Milimetres (4 X 5 CM) - Requirements

About the 40 x 50 mm photo

Depending on the document you will apply for, the dimensions of the photo can be very different. Sometimes the easiest way is to choose a universal photo in electronic form, from which you will be able to cut out any format you want, e.g. 40 x 50 mm. Our photo maker will help you with this, allowing automatic cropping of uploaded photos. Ready and correctly prepared universal size photo can be used with the same effect as a photograph for a specific document. You can obtain the photograph on our website - Passport Photo Online or instead of using a photo cropping tool visit the nearest photo point, which offers taking pictures in 40 on 50 milimetres (4 on 5 cm) format. For sure, however, this is a more time-consuming and more expensive solution. Thus it's worth using photo framing tool.

40 x 50 milimetres (4 by 5 cm) Photo background

Generally a photo for documents should have a uniform background. The background colour itself may differ depending on the specific document. As a general rule, however, it is a bright background, generally white (#ffffffff) or light grey (for example #fbfbfb), nevertheless, there may be a specific requirement regarding background of red - #fa1612. With passport-photo.online photo cropping tool you can get a photograph with a uniform bright background. Simply upload any photo to the form above and our Background Removal Tool will do its job and you will get a photograph on the perfect bright background. Soon, there will also be an option to choose a specific background color. If you need it now, please contact us at [email protected]

Proportions of the digital version of the 40 by 50 milimetres photo

  • for dpi=100 resolution: 157 * 246 px (width = 157 pixels, and height 246 px)
  • for dpi=300 resolution: 471 * 739 px (width = 471 pixels, and height 739 pixels)
