Do you always find yourself looking unnatural in your ID photos? Passport Photo is a great way to keep it from happening again. This service lets you take your own photos - and re-take them as many times as you need, until you are satisfied.

If something is wrong with your photo, our artificial intelligence will notify you. That's why our tool is so easy to use and guarantees 100% acceptance by the authorities.

And how to do it?

When taking biometric passport photos, you need to be aware of the specific requirements. These rules concern clothes, lighting, size and more. To take a perfect photo, remember the following basic tips.

  • Take the photo from a distance of at least 1m
  • Be sure your hair does not cover your eyebrows
  • Open your eyes and close your mouth
  • Do not laugh, a slight smile is appropriate
  • Your head should be 70% of the whole picture
  • Look straight into the camera lens

The tool will format your photo to the right size based on the document's requirements and. It removes the background or changes it to make it suitable for a passport or another document.
