What is the best way to take a digital passport photo?

These guidelines can help you take a good digital passport photo:

  1. Positioning: Face the camera with your face centered and looking directly at it. Don't tilt your head in any direction and keep it level.

  2. Background: With our website, you can take a passport photo with any background as the background will be automatically removed.

  3. Lighting: It is critical to have even light and avoid harsh lighting, as this can result in shadows and highlights. Ideally, the light should be soft and natural.

  4. Clothing: Wear your regular clothing, but refrain from anything distracting or too casual (like a T-shirt with a bold graphic).

  5. Expression: Keep your mouth closed and your facial expression neutral. Avoid smiling or showing your teeth.

  6. Head and shoulders: Your photo should show your head and shoulders, with the top of your head in the center. It is critical that there is enough space around your head and shoulders so that cropping can be done properly.

  7. Resolution: It is ideally recommended that the photo has a resolution of at least 600 pixels per inch to ensure that the final print is clear and high-quality.

How to take passport photo in 5 steps?

Step 1: Use a digital camera or a smartphone to take a photo

Find someone to take the photo for you and selfie photo is not acceptable for passport photo application. If you have a tripod, use it. A tripod will make it easier to keep the camera steady and level. The distance of the person to the camera should be around 1 meter.

Step 2: Find a venue with good lighting

When taking photo, you should face the light, such as a nice bright window or the door. This can provide even lighting to avoid shadows on the face and background. The face must be evenly lit. There should be no shadows and glares on the face.

Note: No need to worry about the background as our online passport photo generator will automatically remove or change the background for you.

Step 3: Wear properly for your passport photo

Do not wear uniforms. Wear regular street clothes in your photo.

Do not wear eyeglasses. If you wear glasses, sunglasses, or tinted glasses, take them off for your passport photo.

Your face must still be fully visible.  Don’t let your hair drape over your face and obscure your eyes. If you have very long bangs that cover your eyebrows, you should pin them back with bobby pins. It’s best if your ears show, as well, but that won’t cause your photo to be rejected.

No hats are allowed in passport photos unless it is religious headgear such as a headscarf or yarmulke that you wear every day.

Step 4: Pose for a passport

Look straight towards the camera with face straight on. Head should not be tilted or rotated.

Both ears showing or both edges of the face visible if hair covers the ears.

Shoulders should be visible, and there should be enough space around the head for cropping the photo.

Position the camera in the same height as the head.
