My husband and I need photos for Chinese travel visas. Can we get passport photos from CVS (2" x 2") and send them to you to be reformatted to comply with Chinese visa requirements?

Yes we do all of this for you, but after 10 years of never having any problems there is one person at the Canadian consulate that has just started rejecting photos because they were printed online. So there is now a chance it can be rejected. Passportphotonow

do you put their name, address and the date that the picture is taken on the back of the photo?

You can try one of the big box store that take passport photos. I would first call them to verify they will give you the original digital digital file on a CD or thumb drive. A scanned photo will not work. Or you can take the photo using your regular hand held digital camera that has a built in flash. See our sample photo page on our website for how to do it yourself.

We need an Australian passport photo for our son Ben. We are in Nashville. Should we try and take a photo with my iphone 6 on a white background and send it to you or would we be better getting a usual US passport photo from Wallgreens. We also have a good cannon SLR but hardly ever use that these days. Alternatively is there someone in Nashville we could go to? Thanks Simon

Hello Simon, Your best option would be to use your Cannon DSLR, as that will give you the best digital file. Once you have placed the order and if the photo is not good enough we will send you an email letting you know what the problems are and how to fix them. You then would just take another photo and replay to that email and attach the new digital file to it. We will do that until you get us a good enough photo. Bruce Passportphotonow

What is the fastest turnaround - if I upload a photo today (Oct 16) and use your "RUSH" service do I also need to add an option for mailing the photos like "Priority or Express USPS" or do I just select the RUSH ??

Our standard service time for an order to be printed and put in the mail is 3-4 business days and is sent via standard USPS mail. If you select "RUSH" service the photos will be printed and put in the mail by the next business day via standard USPS mail. If you want to upgrade your shipping to have the mailing process faster then you would also need to pay for Priority or Express USPS.

I was wondering, can you mail photos directly to a consulate for me, instead of shipping them to me, then me having to ship them? It would save lot's of money and time.

Hello, The Canadian Passport photos are not the same size and have different requirements from the Canadian Citizenship photos. Yes we can make Canadian Citizenship photos for you and know exactly what needs to be done to make them pass. ~ Bruce

I have read the Canadian passport pictures guidelines and I am fine with overall guidelines and have a suitable camera. My question is the size ranges (very specific) and whether I need to do trial/error to get in that size range or you adjust(electronically) to get them there? I will be taking these pictures for 3 of us, any other advice you can offer would be appreciated. Please let me know, thank you

Hello, We will adjust your photo to the correct size for you. Please upload us your full size file unaltered through our website and we will do what is needed. Please our sample photo page for other photo tips.

I do not have a digital file of a passport photo, but have the actual photo from a local camera store. Can I mail you the actual passport photo and you can make it fit the specifications for an Australian passport?

No, I am sorry but I have to have the original digital file that came from the camera that took the picture. A hard photo, scanned photo or a photo of a photo will not work.

Hi, I am looking for someone that can make Canadian Visa photos (35mm x45mm) and I am having a hard time finding somebody. There's four of us and we need 2 each (total 8) with the photographer info on the back including our names and date of birth. Is it possible for you to make them for us and we receive in a timely manner. Please let me know if its possible. Kind Regards, Norah.

Yes, we make Canadian Visa photos everyday. The only thing we need to put on the back of the Visa photo is the date the photo was taken on one photo. Canadian Citizenship and Passport photos both need the photographers information, not the visa are you sure it is the Visa photo you need? Regards, Bruce

Hi, Why does the photo I upload keep coming up blurry? I’ve tried 2 different photos and still no luck. The very first one I tried worked, went through fine. I am needing a second identical photo and now it won’t work (trying to renew Australian passport). Thanks, Alison.

It only looks blurry because it is just showing you the thumbnail file so you know you uploaded the correct photo. Please move forward and place your order, if it turns out the photo is blurry we will let you know and ask for a new photo from you.

G’day! We are a family of 7 needing to renew our Australian and American passports! I was wondering if I could send you all the pics we took and you let us know if they are acceptable. We need two of each person for each passport of myself and my husband and 3 of the kiddos and then just two American passport photos of two other kiddos coz their Aussie passports are still up to date. Is that a possibility? I won’t send the pics until I hear back from you, but I thought it would be easier to just email them all rather than do each one as an individual order. Let me know! Thanks so much!

You will need to place an order for all the photos you need and then we will let you know if the photos are good enough or not.
