    We need new passports and those photos are always so bad so we wondered could we take our own photos and print them then cut them to size? Anyone know is thats ok for UK passports?

    You can take and print your own passport photos BUT there are lots of guidelines.

    This is just some of them:

    • show you with a neutral expression and your mouth closed (no grinning, frowning or raised eyebrows)
    • show you on your own (babies should not have toys or a dummy, and there shouldn’t be other people in the photo)
    • be in colour, not black and white
    • be identical
    • be taken within the last month
    • be 45 millimetres high x 35 millimetres wide - this is the standard size when you have a passport photo taken in a photo booth or studio (you should not trim a larger photograph to meet this condition)
    • be clear and in sharp focus, with a clear difference between your face and the background
    • be taken against a plain cream or plain light grey background
    • not show you with red-eye
    • Be of you facing forward and looking straight at the camera

    You can find out more information here
