    Thanks so much for the tutorial! I went to find two separate stores to get photos taken but they were both closed-maybe from the crappy economy? Anyway, I just sent off my passport renewal thanks to you. Tutorial was clear, well written, and worked like a charm. The only part I had trouble with was changing the ruler from inches to pixels (I do not use Photoshop) but found the answer soon enough. Thanks again. (And my photo still looks like crap…haha)

    This is very good.
    But if somebody doesn’t have Photoshop?
    I suggest a quickly way.
    There are many sites on the internet where anybody can create a valid passport photo.
    For example idphoto4you.com or passportphoto.co.il.
    IDPhoto4You uses faced detection and includes a very smart crop frame.

    I like this. My passport is good for a couple more years though. Since I am going to Latin America for several months I was wondering if you can do a new passport photo this way to use for visas? Obviously it would be a different photo than I had done for my passprt several years ago. Thanks for the tutorial!

      Yes, you can use them for visas too.

    I do the same for our passport photos.

    Plus, we make up a bundle of extra photos and wrap them in plastic and take them with us so we have visa photos or week travel pass photos or whatever, wherever we are, if we need them.

    On the other hand, we had photos taken in Delhi at a photographers and that memory is priceless.

      I also have 4-6 passport sized photos printed out as backup for visas, etc. :-)

    wow, nice job with this tutorial. I just read it because I’m trying to write some tutorials myself and I’m finding pictures help a ton. Still, I think I’ll just look crappy in my passport haha. I don’t care but I know some people do/
