How to prepare yourself?
Distance from the camera
Take the photo from a distance of about 20 inches from your face. Ideally, the photo should be taken by another person.
Face in front of the camera
Place your face in front of the lens and keep a neutral expression on your face. Hold the camera at face height.
Just stand facing a light source such as an exposed window. Don't worry about the background.
Passport photo cropping tool
We all have that perfect photo.
The one your friend took a few months ago…You know the one.
What if there was a way to take that photo and make it your passport picture for the next ten years?
There’s a way–as long as the subject’s face is clearly visible and the photo was taken within the last 6 (six) months. Keep reading to find out how a strategic passport photo crop can have US citizens looking at their perfect photo every time they open their US passport–all done without hours wasted on figuring out confusing cropping tools.
Crop a photo to passport size
There are numerous ways to crop an existing photo to a passport-size one, especially if the image has been saved in a high-quality format (e.g., .jpg between 54Kb and 10MB) or scanned at a minimum resolution of 300 px/inch (for physical prints). Some methods, such as using Photoshop to crop the photo, require a certain amount of technical know-how. While others (e.g., using Passport Photo Online) are so intuitive that almost everyone can figure them out.
When taking a passport photo, it is crucial to have the correct dimensions. Cutting a regular photo to size can result in rejection, as the US passport agents have specific requirements for a passport size photo. Therefore, it is always best to use a digital passport photo tool to ensure the dimensions are correct.
