About the 40 x 50 mm photo
Depending on the document you are going to apply for, the size of the photograph can vary a lot. Sometimes the simplest way is to choose a universal photo in electronic form, from which you will be able to cut out any format you need, for example 40 x 50 milimetres. Our photo generator will help you with it, providing automatic cropping of uploaded photos. Ready and correctly prepared universal size photograph can be used as a photo for a specific document. You can get the photograph on our website - Passport Photo Online or instead of using a photo generator visit the nearest photo point, which offers taking pictures in 40 on 50 mm (4 on 5 cm) format. Surely, however, this is a more time-consuming and more costly solution. So it's worth using photo framing tool.
