Highly recommend this passport photo service. First went to CVS pharmacy to get passport and ID card photos for a German Passport/ID Card and the photo looked nothing like my wife. So I took the picture myself and sent it in for processing and got back a A+++ quality photo back. They promised and delivered just like the site says. Thank you!

Thoroughly recommend this service. We had a bit of trouble convincing our iPhone to take a decent photo of me but Bruce somehow photoshopped it into sufficiently good shape to satisfy the persnicketty people at the Australian embassy in Washington DC. I ordered extra copies for a very moderate additional cost. Very successful process from start to finish.

I highly recommend this service. I used this service for passport photos for both Australian and US passports. The photos were very high quality, shipped fast and arrived in perfect condition. The Australian Consulate in Chicago referred me to this service when they declined passport photos taken at a local place that were awful. The Consulate accepted the photos today for an Australian passport without any problems at all. Thank you so very very much. I will only use your service in the future and will share on social media. Highly recommend.

This was so easy and convenient! Definitely recommend it. You dont have to drive around or wait in a line, or wait for someone to come to the service counter. Quick responses and fast service! Will definitely use Bruce again when its time for my kids passport pics!

I'll admit I was a bit turned off by the website's lack of aesthetics at first. I was referred by s friend who had gone to the chain drug stores and had photos rejected multiple times. The price was right so I decided to give this a try. I got my passport photos very quickly and the most important part is they were accepted the first time! Super happy with Bruce's communication throughout the process. I would definitely recommend Passport Photo Now.

Very efficient and professional service First uploaded photo was rejected which shows that standards are being applied. The rejection was accompanied by helpful suggestions on how to correct the problems. All communication was prompt and final photo arrived promptly and well packaged. Definitely will be using this service again soon.

Fantastic service! I took my own photos using a D-SLR camera, but did not know how to print them to the exact size specifications. PassportPhotoNow to the rescue! I uploaded my photo to the website, and it was printed and delivered to my door within the week. I even had contact with Bruce directly to confirm that the photo I had uploaded would be acceptable. Highly recommend!

Professional and timely service for both Australian and US passport and visa photos. Bruce was particularly helpful in advising on the suitability of my newborn’s photograph, where the requirements are a little more ambiguous and different across countries. Not to mention the difficulty of trying to pin a newborn down for a photograph! Highly recommend.

What an amazing service. My biggest regret is not discovering this sooner and wasting time and money for years trying to find the right place for passport photos for different passports/visas. You have a loyal customer for life!

Highly recommend! This website is awesome, and so easy to use. I have used them for both US and Australian passport photos, and will never try to use Walgreens again. The Walgreens photos often get rejected, especially by the Australian Consulate.

Finding somewhere to take a passport photo of a baby was difficult, but this service made it simple. I had my photos within 48 hours, and it was straightforward to organize. I would highly recommend!

PassportPhotosNow was able to use one picture taken with my iPhone for two purposes -- a Canadian citizenship certificate and a US passport renewal.....even though the requirements were for different sizes and other specifications. Outing service, great photos and fast turn-around at at time when not much else is functioning. Happy customer! Be one too!!!

 Format(Size)Two (2) identical photographs must be submitted,  They should be 2" x 2" in Width and Height.  They should show a close up of your face and the top of your shoulders so that your face takes up between 60% - 70% of the face or 1" x 1 3/8" from the chin to the crown of the head. The photo must clearly show the person's facial features in a straight forward position from the tip of the chin to the crown of the head as well as the left and right sides of the face.  In the case of voluminous hair, it must be ensured that the head (including the hairstyle) is fully depicted without reducing the size of the face, if possible.  The face must be centered in the photo and no more than six months old, to ensure an up to date likeness. 
 BackgroundThe background should be white.  The background should not have any pattern. The photo should show only the person to be photographed (no other persons or objects in the photo). No shadows must be shown on the background.



You need to take the photo with a neutral expression with your mouth closed, not laughing, smiling, frowning and not showing your teeth. With both eyes open, contrived expressions such as raised eyebrows or squinting are not acceptable.
 Head Position The head of the person photographed should be neither at an angle nor turned (portrait style).  Your head must be square to the camera; your face can not be slightly rotated and or tilted. Your face and eyes must be straight towards the camera so we can see an equal amount of each ear and cheek.
 Eyes & Line of  sightThe person in the photo must look directly into the camera. The eyes must be open and dearly visible and may not be covered by hair or spectacle frames.  The camera lens must be at the eye level of the person being photographed , not from above or below
The face must be evenly illuminated by the flash on the camera. Reflections or shadows on the face as well as red eyes must be avoided.

Photograph cannot be manipulated, for example, by removing spots or softening lines.  Photos must be in color.

 Head wearGenerally speaking, head wear is not permitted. Exceptions are possible, especially for religious reasons. In such cases, the face must be visible from the lower tip of the chin to the forehead. No shadows should be visible on the face.
