More about Passport Photo Creator - Requirements

Create a passport photo online

Passport Photo Online is an app that helps users take pictures for any kind of document on their own, without any kind of special equipment or preparation. With our help, passport pictures can be taken with just a digital camera or smartphone at home or wherever you may be.

Our passport photo creator app can help you take pictures for you and all your family members conveniently from home.

How to create a passport photo at home

Taking your own passport photo is much simpler than most people imagine, especially with the help of Passport Photo Online. Users only need to follow these 3 steps. 

Step#1: Find the perfect spot

One of the most important aspects of any kind of picture is the lighting. For passport-size photos, the light must be evenly spread, so as not to create shadows on the face or in the background. The best way to achieve this is to set up in front of a window on a sunny day. Using natural light will ensure that there are no imbalances. In any event, we’ll be able to tell you if there are any imperfections.

Step#2: Set up the camera

To get the perfect passport photo, the camera has to be around 2 (two) meters from the applicant. So, either have someone else take the picture or set up the device on a tripod at the right height and distance. Any background will do, Passport Photo Online has got you covered.

Step#3: Pose for the passport photo

Stand straight and face the camera directly with your eyes open and parallel to the lens. Make sure your face is completely visible and move your hair aside if necessary. While a natural smile is not against the rules, the State Department still recommends maintaining a neutral facial expression with the mouth closed.

At this point, all that's left to do is turn the picture into a standard passport photo with the help of our online passport-size photo maker.

Create a passport-size photo yourself

With Passport Photo Online, users can create pictures for any document they might need anywhere they are. Our intuitive passport photo app will guide you every step of the way.

Here's how it works:

  2. Wait for the compliance check
    The passport photo tool is equipped with a state-of-the-art AI system capable of detecting any possible mistakes. After that, one of our experts examines every detail of the image. If it gets approved, you get a 100% guarantee of compliance with the official requirements.
  3. Take advantage of unlimited tries
    With Passport Photo Online, users can easily take multiple pictures until they get the perfect shot, without incurring any extra costs. This feature is especially useful for parents who need to take an infant passport photo, as it can be challenging to get a good shot on the first try.
  4. Pick the format you need
