According to the U.S. State Department, for a passport the minimum photo dimensions are 600x600 pixels. This indication doesn't exactly refer to the image size but to the resolution. For this reason, while a U.S. passport photo always needs to be 2 inches in height and 2 inches in width, it can go from 600 x 600 pixels to 1200 x 1200 pixels.
Specifically, the authorities indicate the following parameters:
Technically, a passport picture can be resized to the 600 x 600 photo dimension with almost any graphics software. Tools like Photoshop or MS Paint allow users to adjust the photo's width and height while still maintaining the original ratio.
With Photoshop, after opening the file, all you have to do is select "Images", then "Image Size", and enter the desired pixel dimensions.
However, while adapting the image dimensions is simple enough, it's extremely important to check that all other aspects of the resized image follow the official requirements.
