More about Photo 1x1 Inches (2,5 X 2,5 CM) - Requirements

1 x 1 inch photo

One of the most popular options at photography studios is a universal photograph in a digital or printed version. A 1 x 1 inch photo is equivalent to 2.5 x 2.5 cm or 25 x 25 mm. 

Some documents around the world require a 1 x 1 inch (2.5 x 2.5 cm) size photo, including the Philippines RUSH ID or the Philippines license. Nowadays, thanks to online photo tools, you don’t have to spend your time hunting for the nearest photo booth or drug store that offers photo prints - instead, you can just take a 1 x 1” photo yourself. 

All you have to do is take a snap of yourself with the help of a tripod, or ask someone to do it for you. You can also use an already existing photo that you think is a good fit for a government document. You can then upload the image to the form above or to our photo app. Passport Photo Online will help you prepare your 1 x 1” photo by automatically cropping the digital image to fit the photo size requirements, leaving you with professionally prepared, correct photos ready for an online submission. You can also order printouts of your 1 x 1” photos to be shipped to your home.

Before sending you your image files or the actual square photo prints (depending on which option you go for - a digital image or ready printout), we will carefully verify your pictures to make sure they are appropriately sized and meet all the criteria. 

1 x 1 inch (2.5 x 2.5 cm) size photo background

Most commonly, official documents call for a uniform, light-colored background. The actual background color required for your particular 1 x 1” photo may be different, as it is conditioned by the specific type of document you are applying for. 

Usually, however, it’s a bright background, normally white (#ffffffff) or light gray (for example #f6f6f6). Some documents may have a particular requirement for a light blue background (#1292fa). 

With the cropping tool you can get a photograph with a uniform bright background. Our background removal tool will replace any unwanted or incorrect background with the correct one, as required by the particular country’s passport authorities.

1 x 1 inch photo - digital version

In the case of 1 x 1” photos in electronic format, it is fundamental to maintain the correct proportions, i.e. the ratio of the 25 mm width to the 25 mm height. Depending on the resolution (dpi) of the printout, these may be considerably different in dimensions expressed in pixels (px). For instance, they may be as follows:

  • for dpi=100 resolution: 98 x 98 px
  • for dpi=300 resolution: 295 x 295 px
  • for dpi=600 resolution: 591 x 591 px
