You can just use one of the digital photobooths that will improve your passport pic accordingly so that it matches the requirements.

Digital photo booths are definitely much more convenient than traditional photo booths located e.g. in Asda or Tesco stores. Passport Photo Online is not only a cheaper and time-saving option, nonetheless, also it will let you take a photo as many times as you need. In a traditional photo booth it may happen that in the shot you paid for you have your eyes closed or don’t look straight into the camera lens.

Besides the fact that such a photo will be rejected at the passport office, you may need to retake the photo shot a few times in order to look good in the picture (for example, you may want to pose differently, redo your hair or touch up the make-up).

Passport Photo Online digital photobooth helps you take the photo at any place and any time! You can take the photograph at home, in a park or even in a supermarket! Our passport photo generator will erase the background and also resize it, crop it, center it and check if the lighting is even and if your face is not obscured by any objects or hair.

For example, it is a common mistake to have the eyebrows obscured by fringe, but, if you use our picture tool you have nothing to worry about! Passport Photo Online is a passport photograph validator, background eraser and photo cropping tool - all in one!
