35x45 mm photo - basic info 

One of the most popular options at a photography studio is a 35x45 mm photo in digital or printed version. This measurement is equivalent to the dimensions of 3.5x4.5 centimeters. Such a picture may be taken not only by a photographer, but you can also take it yourself. All you have to do is frame it correctly. The easiest way to get this format is to use the Passport Photo Online editor that will help you edit and crop photos in a fast and professional way. By using framing tools, you will get a ready to print picture with the dimensions of 35x45 millimeters. This will save you time and money, and it’s one of the fastest and most convenient ways to take a perfect 35x45 mm photo. 

35x45 mm photo - background

Normally, a document photo should have a uniform background. The background color may differ depending on the document. However, it is generally a bright background, normally white (#ffffffff) or light gray (e.g. #fafafa), although there may be a particular requirement regarding a red background - #fa1212. With the Passport Photo Online editor, you can get a photograph with a uniform bright background. First you need to upload a photo using Passport Photo Online, and then use the background removal tool to get your photo against the perfect bright background. 

35x45 millimeter photograph - equivalents

The equivalents of a 35x45 mm photograph are:

  • 3.5 x 4.5 cm (i.e. 3.5 cm width and 4.5 cm height)
  • 1.38 x 1.77 inches (i.e. 1.38 inch width and 1.77 inch height)

Digital version of the 35x45 mm photo

In the case of digital photographs, it is important to maintain the right proportions, i.e. the ratio of the 35 mm width to the 45 millimeter height. Depending on the resolution (dpi) of the printout, these can be considerably different in dimensions expressed in pixels (px), for example:

  • for dpi=100 resolution: 138 on 177 px (width = 138 pixels, and height = 177 px)
  • for dpi=300 resolution: 414 on 532 px (width = 414 px, and height = 532 pixels)
  • for dpi=600 resolution: 826 on 1063 px (width = 826 px, and height = 1063 pixels)

Tips on how to take a better photo

Let’s talk about how to take a photo for your passport or visa. If you’re getting your passport or visa photos using a photo app, you can take your picture anywhere you want - even outside! Something to pay attention to is what kind of shutter speed you use, so we’ll go over that topic briefly. 

Fast shutter speeds allow in less light and give the impression that an object has been frozen in motion. A faster shutter speed is especially recommended when taking photos outdoors, or when photographing objects that are moving fast. Therefore, if you’re taking your 35x45 mm photo outside, you can set the shutter speed on your digital camera or smartphone to ‘fast’, so you get a better result. The same also applies to taking passport or visa pictures of babies or toddlers, as they tend to move around a lot. On the other hand, slow shutter speed is most recommended in darker settings, so if you’re taking your photo on an overcast day, or when there is not enough daylight, try using a slower shutter speed.
