Can't thank these people enough, they have gone above and beyond today to produce a lovely passport photograph from my poor photograph. Thank you for all your efforts. I would recommend this company good value, professional and kind.

Ann Y.

Excellent service. Very good software that enhanced our photos. They also did a manual check and had me redo one of the pictures for free. I have only used online passport photos for more than 10 years. This is by far the best.

Regarding the 4 x 4 centimetres photo

Depending on the document you will apply for, the size of the photograph can vary a lot. Sometimes the simplest way is to choose a universal photograph in digital version, from which you will be able to cut out any format you want, e.g. 4 x 4 cm. Our photo maker will help you with this, allowing automatic cropping of uploaded photos. Ready and correctly prepared universal size photo can be used as a photo for a specific document. You can prepare the photograph on our website - Passport Photo Online or instead of using a cropping tool visit the nearest photo booth, which offers taking pictures in 4 on 4 cm (40 on 40 milimetres) format. Definitely, however, this is a more time-consuming and more expensive solution. Therefore it's worth using photograph framing tool.

4 x 4 cm (40 by 40 milimetres) Photograph background

Normally a document photograph should have a uniform background. The background colour itself may vary depending on the specific document. As a rule, however, it is a bright background, normally white (#ffffffff) or light grey (for example #f5f5f5), nevertheless, there may be a specific background requirement of blue - #1250fa. With passport-photo.online photo generator you can get a photo with a uniform bright background. All you have to do is upload any photo to the form above and our Background Removal Tool will do its job and you will get a photo on the perfectly 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]

4 x 4 centimetres Photo equivalents

The equivalents of a 4 x 4 centimetres size photograph are:

  • 40 x 40 milimetres photograph (i.e. photo's width 40 milimetres and height 40 mm)
  • 1,57 x 1,57 inches photo (i.e. photo's width 1,57 inches and height 1,57 inches)

Proportions of the electronic version of the 4 by 4 cm photo

In the case of photos only in digital form, it is crucial to maintain the right proportions, i.e. the ratio of the 4 cm width to the 4 centimetres height. Depending on the resolution (dpi) of the printout, these may vary a lot in dimensions expressed in pixels (px). E.g., these may be the sizes:

  • for dpi=100 resolution: 157 x 246 px (width = 157 px, and height 246 pixels)
  • for dpi=300 resolution: 471 x 739 px (width = 471 pixels, and height 739 px)
  • for dpi=600 resolution: 942 x 1479 px (width = 942 pixels, and height 1479 pixels)
