30x40 mm photo

The requirements for official document photos may vary, especially in terms of size and framing. If you want to obtain a professional photograph that is suitable for various documents, usually the best solution is to choose a universal photograph with a pre-set size. For example, for the given format: 30x40 mm - that is 3x4 centimeters, you can use the cropping tool available on our Passport Photo Online website and we will alter your photograph to meet the requirements of the office or institution. Thanks to this easy process, you will save time and money on searching for a photographer to take professional photographs for documents in the size you need. Furthermore, photography studios may not always be able to offer printing services for photos with dimensions of 30x40 millimeters or 3x4 centimeters. So, using a photo maker with the option of automatic framing may be the best solution.
