  • The photo should include shoulders and some space above the head.
  • You must have a neutral facial expression.
  • Do not wear jewelry, hats, or headphones.
  • The head must be neither twisted nor tilted in any direction - look straight ahead.
  • Note that the camera lens should be placed at eye level.

It means you don’t need a professional photographer’s help to get your perfect UK passport photo. You can simply use one of the digital photo booths that will adjust your passport pic to match the official requirements.

Digital photo booths are much more convenient than the traditional ones. Passport Photo Online will let you take as many photos as you want in the relaxed environment of your home - you won’t have to feel rushed by other people waiting in line.

Photo booth in London

If you are a traditionalist and would rather take a passport photo at one of the traditional photo booths, you can easily find one in London. The photobooths in London are located mostly inside post offices, railway stations, and large supermarkets like Tesco. Pictures taken at a photo booth can be used for many UK documents, including your passport, driving licence, and visas. However, not every London photo booth will provide you with the instructions on how to take the right shot that will meet all the official requirements.

Tesco, Costco, or Asda in London

In London there are many photo shops where you can easily print passport photos. Most of them also offer passport photo taking services, such as Tesco or Asda stores. Nonetheless, it will be cheaper if you prepare the digital photo template online and only print your visa or passport photos at one of those locations. 

Jessops, Morrisons, Snappy Snaps - there are so many choices! A postcard size (10 x 15 cm or 4x6 inch) photo printout usually costs less than 35 p., and prices of 4x6 inch prints at Costco photo centers start at £0.07. For example, you can get photo prints at Jessops for as low as £0.14. Make sure you visit the official website for the photo printing service you choose to learn about the stores’ opening hours. Some of the above mentioned photo centers may also allow you to order your prints online, so you might not even have to leave your house to get your prints - you may be able to get it all done online from preparation to printing!

Where to print passport photos in London?

Regardless whether you are in London or another city, Passport Photo Online will easily get you a printable passport photo template - i.e. a file that will contain 2 (two) passport size photos that are ready to be submitted with your UK passport application. The photo template can be prepared within just 1 minute and as for the photo-copying store, London is full of them! The photo printing kiosks are usually located within, for example, Tesco, Boots, Costco, Jessops, Morrisons, Snappy Snaps, or Asda stores. 

All you need to do in order to print the passport photos at one of the London photo kiosks is simply download the passport photo template prepared with the Passport Photo Online app or website and save it on your USB.

Make sure to print the file in the 10 x 15 cm (4x6 inch) size. The template is formatted in the way that 2 (two) perfect passport size photos will be printed out correctly if the whole printout maintains the 15 x 10 cm (6x4 inch) dimensions. The cost of the passport photo printout in London in such a size is usually no more than 35 p. 

Remember that it is possible to apply for your British passport online, however, if you need photos in paper format when you apply in person, then printing out the digital template is very simple. Upload your photo and if you like the way you look in the preview, download the passport photo template. Then visit a photo-printing store and get it printed in postcard size (4x6 inch / 10 x 15 cm). Then cut out the passport size photos from the printout you get.

Tesco prints in London

Printing out a passport size photo at a London Tesco is easy and convenient. Especially if you have prepared a digital passport photo template in advance. This way you won’t need to use the Tesco photo booth that charges you £6 for a passport pic.
