DIY Suitable Photos

Taking a picture at home to send us

Top Tip: Take you picture outside in daylight without using flash. Ideally, it should be a cloudy bright day (no shadows cast by the sun). Select a background that suits your requirements - a sheet hanging on a washing line will do the trick - and take the picture.

Do not try and crop the picture in the camera, it won't work - this can be done afterwards on a computer. Click to see a guide on taking your own Baby Passport Photo at home.

Online Passport Photo

  • Send us a half length photo of the subject - IMPORTANT
  • Leave plenty of space above the head
  • Stand about two metres away from the person
  • Ensure the person stands about one metre away from the background
  • Select the highest quality setting on your camera
  • If your camera has a backlight compensation button try using it
  • If your camera has a portrait setting you should select it
  • All countries require a neutral expression with no teeth showing
  • If you wear glasses our advice is to remove them
  • Ensure you have selected the right background colour

If you have followed our advice and not used flash and taken the picture outside you should end up with a photo completely FREE OFSHADOWS.

Don't worry if you photo doesn't look perfect. - we can correct many faults at the printing stage. All pictures are assessed before printing and if we think there might be a problem we will email you and let you know, explaining what the problem is and how to correct it.
