More about Passport Photo Resizer - Requirements

Resize Your Passport Photo

The pictures required for a U.S. passport application need to follow precise instructions concerning size. Specifically, the State Department indicates 2 inches square (2" in height, 2" in width) as the correct passport photo size. The same measurements also apply to U.S. visas, driver's licenses, and any kind of government-issued photo ID.

Applicants who decide to take their own passport pictures will likely need the assistance of a passport photo resizer to properly fit the required dimensions. With the help of Passport Photo Online, it's possible to adapt pictures automatically and have them checked for compliance with all other requirements—all of this from home.

Passport photo resizer 2x2"—available options

For those looking to crop pictures to passport size, there is a wide choice of online tools. With these platforms, applicants can upload photo files taken with a digital camera and turn them into a printable image.

However, most software requires users to resize photos manually and to get the right ratio by eye. This increases the risk of oversights resulting in minor mistakes.

Additionally, the majority of online tools don't come with a compliance check or background removal. This might seem trivial, but even a small shadow or imbalance can cause the authorities to demand a new passport photo.

Luckily, Passport Photo Online has got it all covered. Our app can help you take the perfect photo anywhere with a smartphone.

Here's what we offer:

  • Automatic conversion to passport size. After uploading a photo and picking the desired document, the image will be immediately resized maintaining all aspects of the required ratio—no risk of even the smallest mistake.
  • Background removal. Anything behind the head and shoulders will be replaced with a plain color required for the passport picture. This allows our customers to take their photos anywhere they are without the need to set up or travel anywhere.
  • Double compliance check. The built-in AI system will scan the image—it will be able to verify that all requirements for passport or visa photos are met. Then, one of our experts will examine the picture and give a final confirmation. The photos we approve are guaranteed to be 100% in line with the official rules.
  • Unlimited tries. If the first passport-size photo doesn't satisfy you, just go ahead and take another one. Customers only pay for the photos they choose.
  • Printing templates. Other than taking and verifying pictures, with Passport Photo Online, users can arrange templates to print their passport photos. With these files, you can go to any of the major print service providers and have multiple pictures ready for any upcoming application.

We fit official photo sizes and passport requirements to documents from anywhere in the world and send the ready-to-download file via email. Customers can also order prints to be delivered to their address.
