How to prepare yourself?
Distance from the camera
Take the photo from a distance of about 20 inches from your face. Ideally, the photo should be taken by another person.
Face in front of the camera
Place your face in front of the lens and keep a neutral expression on your face. Hold the camera at face height.
Just stand facing a light source such as an exposed window. Don't worry about the background.
Regarding the 30 x 40 mm photo
The requirements for documentary photographs are different, especially in terms of size and framing. If you want to obtain a professional photograph that is suitable for various documents, normally the best solution is to choose a universal photo with pre-set size. E.g., for a given format: 30 x 40 milimetres - that is 3 on 4 centimetres, you can use the cropping tool available on our page. Shortly we would adapt your photograph to the requirements of the office or institution. Thanks to this easy procedure, you will save time and money on searching for a photography studio who will take professional documentary photographs in the size you need. Not always at a photography studio there is the possibility to print photos with dimensions of 30 on 40 milimetres or 3 x 4 centimetres, hence, using cropping tool with automatic framing option may be the best solution.
30 x 40 milimetres (3 by 4 cm) Photograph background
Commonly a photo for documents should have a uniform background. The background colour itself may vary depending on the specific document. Often, however, it is a bright background, normally white (#ffffffff) or light grey (for example #f5f5f5), although, there may be a particular requirement regarding background of blue colour - #1250fa. With passport-photo.online photo generator 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@example.com.
30 x 40 mm Photo equivalents
The equivalents of a 30 x 40 mm photograph are:
- 3 x 4 centimetres photograph (i.e. photo's width 3 centimetres and height 4 centimetres)
- 1,18 x 1,57 inches photograph (i.e. photo's width 1,18 inches and height 1,57 inches)
Proportions of the digital version of the 30 by 40 milimetres photo
In the case of electronic form photographs only, it is very important to maintain the correct proportions, i.e. the ratio of the 30 mm width to the 40 mm height. Depending on the resolution (dpi) of the printout, these can be considerably different in sizes expressed in pixels (px). E.g., these can be dimensions:
- for dpi=100 resolution: 118 x 139 px (width = 118 pixels, and height 139 pixels)
- for dpi=300 resolution: 354 x 418 px (width = 354 pixels, and height 418 pixels)
- for dpi=600 resolution: 708 x 835 px (width = 708 px, and height 835 pixels)
