Concerning the 40 x 50 milimetres photo

One of the most popular options at a photography studio is to order a universal photograph in electronic or printed form. This is a photo with preset size, in this case with width 40 milimetres and height being 50 milimetres. This corresponds to the dimensions 4 by 5 centimetres. Such a picture can 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 ready to print picture with size 40 on 50 mm, without any problem. This will save you time, which you would have to spend on searching for a photographer who would take photographs in this size.

Background of the 40 x 50 mm (4 by 5 cm) photo

Often a photograph for a document should have a uniform background. The background colour itself can differ depending on the specific application. Normally, however, it is a bright background, generally white (#ffffffff) or light grey (for instance #f9f9f9), however, there can be a particular background requirement of red colour - #fa1212. With passport-photo.online photo maker you can get a photo with a uniform bright background. Simply upload any photograph 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]
