Printing a passport quality photo

  Halmer 15:39 14 Jan 2006

just wondered if I can do this with my new PC on photo quality paper.

I've taken one of my lad and tried to print it via Irfanview at 45x35 millimetres but he sort of ends up with a stretched face!

To save me having to find a photo booth close to has anyone ever done this?

Ok photo's on home printers will probably be rejected by the Passport office, due to newer rules. click here

I've printed passports for family and friends in the past, but with the new digital standards, this as now come to an end.
Passport photo's for visa's are still accepted by various countries including Kenya, I know this for a fact as I've just recieved my Kenyan visa's for my forthcoming visit

The first were rejected. So, I retook them making sure they were against a white background, full faced, not smiling etc. Success. They were accepted. I used HP printing software to print at the correct size.

As with Bigtoe. The rules have changed. My passport photo (current until 2008, is against a blue background) Now it has to be a white background. Don't see the point of that. Must be full face and not smiling.

If it looks like you does it matter where it was taken??

I see they have amended the rules for infants/babies recently. They can have their eyes closed, mouths open, smiling, looking away from the camera etc...

Does that mean that the "officials" who check your passport photo against your presence are idiots who cannot see that it is a good likeness?
