    Wow even gestures matter now. I know is is a formal photo and all but it seems to be so strict. I mean I can understand if wacky faces are not allowed but to this degree.

    Great post, It’s very explicit about the yes and No, regarding the digital picture for the passport. It’s a shame that people can’t smile for this picture.

    I take mostly digital photos now with my phone. My phone came with the sharpest camera which gives me the edge of taking very good shots. One good thing about digital passport is the ability to retrieve it anytime later in the future.

    Thanks for outlining all the key points of taking a passport photo. Eye contact and the quality of the picture are definitely things airlines will look for. Thanks for giving the size diameters as well.

    The benefits are real and it really makes your life easier. Unlike printing too many photos of you for ID or for anything that needs your photo, having it in soft copy is a lot better than printing a lot of it and ending up knowing you won’t be needing them until after a few moths. Keeping everything digital until needed for printing is indeed a good tip.

    These are indeed good tips you mentioned here not just on how to keep photos but on how to take them. Most of the time we don’t need our photos unless we need it for some ID applications and we forget how we should take them. Face clear and not smiling and without glasses if you wear one like me. I tend to forget to remove them when taking pictures until the photographer tells me so,

    This will be very helpful for those that didn’t know about the need of taking a digital passport. I think people didn’t boycott it out of ignorance but it will give one a rethink after reading this.

    Digital photos are a blessing for sure. It used to be that you can only go to studios to get a passport picture taken but you can do it on your own now with phones or your own camera. Also, I didn’t know that you can’t smile for passport pictures!
