Take your own passport photo using iPhone

The days of either booking an appointment at a professional photography studio, or cramming yourself into a tiny photo-booth are gone. Now you can take a perfect passport photo yourself using nothing more than your iPhone. 

It’s easy. Simply grab your device, snap a picture of yourself and upload it to our dedicated software which will then transform the image into a perfect passport photo.

PhotoAiD - the only tool you need to get an ID picture

With the availability of advanced and specialized passport photo tools, a growing number of people decide to take their passport photo themselves. PhotoAiD software has been specifically designed to transform home-made pictures into perfectly fitted passport photos using advanced AI algorithms. 

Once you have taken the picture with your iPhone, join the thousands of people who have used our program. Our app will validate that your photograph meets the official passport photo criteria. PhotoAiD will remove the background and replace it with a plain white one, and the image will be perfectly sized and cropped so your new passport photo meets the exact specifications.

The end product is a perfect passport photograph, ready for your passport application. And it’s all done with just a few clicks in a couple of seconds.

Digital passports photos with iPhone: requirements

Although PhotoAiD takes responsibility for all the technical aspects of your passport photo requirements, there are a few guidelines for you to follow to make sure your picture is suitable for a passport application.

First and foremost, do not take a selfie. It may seem tempting, but it may also result in having your passport photo rejected. Ask a friend or a family member to snap a picture of you, or use a tripod to do it yourself.

While posing, bear in mind that:

  • your face should remain neutral, neither smiling or frowning,
  • you should look straight and directly at the camera,
  • eyes open; blinking is not allowed,
  • your head must be straight and centered, do not look down or sideways,
  • glasses are not allowed, not even prescription eyeglasses,
  • the best dress code is casual.

Size of digital passport photos

The U.S. Department of State has detailed guidelines for digital passport photos including the size, dimensions and weight of the photograph. To the surprise of many, a professional camera is not the only device capable of taking passport photographs. Your iPhone is just as good. 

PhotoAiD takes care of all the necessary criteria, adjusting your iPhone-taken image to the official requirements. Our app makes sure the image is of a proper weight, and that the amount of pixels is just right, adjusting the resolution. 

Supported devices

Any iOS operated device is supported by PhotoAiD software, whether it is an older version of iPhone or iPad.
