More about Photo 40x50 MM (4x5 Centimetres) - Requirements

Regarding the 40 x 50 milimetres photo

One of the most popular options at a photography studio is to order a universal photograph in electronic or printed form. This is a photograph with preset dimensions, in this case with width being 40 mm and height 50 mm. This equals to the dimensions 4 by 5 cm. Such a photo can 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 image to the form above. We will help you with our photo maker, allowing you automatic cropping of photos in a fast and professional way. Using framing tools you will get a printable image with dimensions 40 on 50 mm, without any problem. This will save you time, which you would have to spend on searching for a photographer who would take photos in these dimensions.

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

Commonly a document photo should have a uniform background. The background colour itself can differ depending on the specific application. Commonly, however, it is a bright background, normally white (#ffffffff) or light grey (e.g. #fbfbfb), although, there can be a specific requirement regarding background of red - #fa1212. With passport-photo.online photo maker you can get a photo 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]

Equivalents of the 40 x 50 milimetres photograph

The equivalents of a 40 x 50 milimetres size photograph are:

  • 4 x 5 cm photo (i.e. photo's width 4 cm and height 5 cm)
  • 1,57 x 1,97 inches photograph (i.e. photo's width 1,57 inches and height 1,97 inches)

Proportions of the digital version of the 40 by 50 mm photograph

In the case of electronic form photos only, it is crucial to maintain the right proportions, i.e. the ratio of the 40 mm width to the 50 milimetres height. Depending on the resolution (dpi) of the printout, these may differ considerably regarding dimensions expressed in pixels (px). E.g., these may be dimensions:

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