Photo 33x48 Milimetres (3,3x4,8 Centimetres) - All You Need to Know

Concerning the 33 x 48 mm photo

One of the most popular options at a photography studio is to order a universal photograph in digital or printed form. This is a photograph with preset size, in this case with width 33 milimetres and height being 48 mm. This means the dimensions 3,3 by 4,8 centimetres. Such a photograph may be taken not only by a professional 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. 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 picture with size 33 on 48 mm, without any problem. This will save you time, which you would have to spend on looking for a photographer who would take photos in these dimensions.

33 x 48 mm (3,3 by 4,8 centimetres) Photo background

Generally a document photo should have a uniform background. The background colour itself may vary depending on the specific document. Normally, however, it is a bright background, normally white (#ffffffff) or light grey (for example #fafafa), however, there may be a specific requirement regarding background of light blue - #1292fa.

With 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 photo on the perfect bright background.

Equivalents of the 33 x 48 mm photo

The equivalents of a 33 x 48 mm size photograph are:

  • 3,3 x 4,8 cm photograph (i.e. photo's width is 3,3 cm and height is 4,8 cm)
  • 1,18 x 1,57 in photo (i.e. photo's width is 1,18 inch and height is 1,57 inch)

Proportions of the digital version of the 33 by 48 mm photo

In the case of digital form photographs only, it is crucial to maintain the right proportions, i.e. the ratio of the 33 mm width to the 48 mm height. Depending on the resolution (dpi) of the printout, these may be very different in dimensions expressed in pixels (px). E.g., these may be sizes:

  • for dpi=100 resolution: 130 x 189 px (width = 130 pixels, and height 189 pixels)
