from our customers
I would highly recommend this company. I have spent all day taking passport pictures for my one year old trying to get them right. The team have had to do endless revisions of the photos for me all for the one cost! In the end my last image which I have just received was photo edited by them to make it acceptable for a passport. Thank you so much for your time and patience! Got there in the end.
Simple and Easy. I was hesitating on what the best app would be for my passport photo, and I eventually decided on this one. So pleased I did, it was simple and easy to use, and easily changed my photo to be accepted in a passport format. All approved now and I can't emphasise enough how easy it was. I definitely recommend this app.
Great service. The team corrected my passport photo the second time I uploaded a photo to comply with the requirements. The reply was also very quick - within 30 minutes.

All passport photos must adhere to strict regulations regarding their composition, what the subject is wearing and how they are posing. U.S. passport photos are no exception. To make sure that the digital photos used in U.S. passport photos show accurate biometric information, each one has to follow a strict set of official guidelines, issued by the U.S. State Department. We've compiled these rules into this handy guide - read on and you'll have your new passport photo ready in no time.
Our easy-to-use guide covers the 5 key areas of U.S. passport photo requirements:
Study them carefully, you'll need to follow them closely throughout the process in order to ensure that the photo for your U.S. passport, as well as your passport application itself, is accepted first time.
The U.S. Department of State maintains a stringent series of rules regarding how passport photos must look. Here is some general guidance issued by the passport services regarding the format of the passport photos and how they should be presented:
All passport photos have to adhere to standard sizing conventions issued by the Department of State. When taking and printing your passport photo, bear in mind that it needs to measure 2 x 2 inches in size (or 51 x 51mm in metric). The length of your head from crown to chin needs to be between 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches, to make sure that your new passport photo holds all the right biometric information.
When taking your passport photo, you need to choose the correct setting. The passport photo services specify that, when preparing to take your photo, you must ensure:
Your pose for your new passport picture needs to fulfil the guidelines listed by the Department of State, as posing incorrectly could lead to your application being rejected. The official guidance notes state that:
The official guidelines set out by the U.S. State Department specify that you should wear clothing normally worn on a daily basis. The general rule of thumb with all forms of clothing and jewelry is that nothing should be obscuring your face, particularly your eyes. The rules, in detail, are as follows:
Did you know you can take your U.S. passport photo without even needing to leave home? If that option appeals to you, then look no further than our application! We have an easy three-step process for getting the ideal passport photo in less than 15 minutes:
All of this could take you less than 15 minutes in total. In that short amount of time, your photo could be reworked so it's the correct size, checked for mistakes and had the background changed to make it compliant with the rules. All that, and using our passport photo tool could save up to 54% on your passport photo, too!
Our system is dedicated to providing quality service for our clients, whether you’re at home, the park or the office, meaning you can easily fit taking pictures for your passport photo into your day-to-day life. As long as you have access to the internet, we can prepare a passport photo template reel for you, using the standard photo size of 2 x 2 inch (or 51 x 51mm).
After that, you can print the template yourself on photo paper at home or at a print shop, or we can print it out for you and mail it directly to your door, for a reasonable price. We take a lot of pride in our work, so in the unlikely event that a photo we edited is rejected by the State Department, we pledge to refund you 200% of what you paid, for extra peace of mind.
Questions and answers
If you want to take a good picture for your U.S. passport, the best way to do so is to make sure you are familiar with all the rules for passport photos in advance: Ensure that you remember to keep the setting evenly lit, with a plain white/off-white background. Wear normal, casual clothes, with no head coverings that aren't religious or medical in nature and no accessories that could cover your face. You need to make sure that you are posing correctly, i.e. facing directly into the camera, with your eyes open, your mouth closed and a natural facial expression. Finally, check that your photo matches the size and formatting requirements. All of this is outlined in more detail above, so make sure you are familiar with all the rules before you begin to take your passport photo.
