How to make photos online for US passport
On applying for a US passport you do not submit your passport photo online.
Instead you bring it along with you with your application forms and other documents:
Proof of U.S. citizenship (Birth Certificate, Certificate of Naturalization, Consular report of Birth Abroad,
Citizenship Certificate or a previous US passport) and Proof of Relationship (if you apply for child).
Also you will need to pay the fees.
But you can make your photos online and substantially save both time and money
Make sure the photo looks good, because we make photos automatically and about 10% of them need manual correction.
If a photo needs manual correction, reply to the message we sent to you or go to the contacts page
and let us know that a correction is needed.
Then print the photo at Walgreens
online on a matte 4x6" paper. It costs about $0.36, but sometimes they do it as low as $0.14 per print.
Then go to the nearest Walgreens and pick your passport photo prints.
You can also print photos online at Shutterfly or Snapfish and have it mailed to you.
Glossy paper may work too, and we have had clients who submitted it on glossy paper and it passed,
but there is a risk it may be rejected. So matte is a safe option.
There will be 4 individual photographs on the prints that you get.
Cut 2 photographs from it with scissors.
Submit your application at the Acceptance Facility or a Passport Agency.
