One of the most popular options at a photography studio is to order a universal photo in electronic or printed form. This is a photograph with preset dimensions, in this case with width 35 mm and height being 40 milimetres. This equals to the dimensions 3,5 by 4 cm. Such a picture may be taken not only by a 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 cropping tool, allowing you automatic cropping of photos in a fast and professional way. Using framing tools you will get a printable picture with dimensions 35 on 40 milimetres, without any problem. This will save you time, which you would have to spend on searching for a photography studio that would take photographs in this size.
Generally a document photo should have a uniform background. The background colour itself may differ depending on the specific document. Usually, however, it is a bright background, normally white (#ffffffff) or light grey (for example #fcfcfc), although, there may be a specific requirement regarding background of red colour - #fa1212. With passport-photo.online photo maker you can get a photo with a uniform bright background. All you have to do is upload any photo to the form above and our Background Removal Tool will do its job and you will get a photograph on the perfectly 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 protected]
