Print your UK passport photo at Tesco for the cost of 55p

Wondering about the low price? The trick is to request a standard postcard size 10cmx15cm (4x6 inch) photo printout, instead of asking for a passport size photo. While the price for getting a passport photo printed is £6, any standard photo print out costs you only 55p, a real steal.

Through printing a postcard-size photo (10cmx15cm) using a passport photo template, you get 4 passport-size (35mmx45 mm) pictures, ready to cut out and use. Using a template means you can print additional photos whenever needed. This method also works perfectly for photos for documents other than the passport!

Not only is this a money-saver, but in addition you can reuse this method for when you need photos for other documents and retake the photo as many times as you want.

Passport photo at Tesco- the print size

As described in the paragraph above, there is really no need to pay for a 45mmx35mm passport photo at Tesco. Using a template of the size of 10cmx15cm to print your passport photo, get 4 passport size pictures. Afterwards, just find the Tesco closest to your address and print the postcard-size photo. Voila! All that is left to do is to carefully cut out the picture you are gonna be using from the template.

Opening hours of Tesco for printing your passport photo 

The standard opening hours of a Tesco store are 7-20. However you can prepare your online photo template at any time online! If the opening hours of Tesco do not fit your schedule, order your printed photos directly to your address via our Premium Photo Service!

Tesco’s Instant Print Kiosks

When looking for a place to print out your digital passport photo, check where to find the nearest Tesco with an Instant Photo Print Kiosk. The Kiosks offer instant photography printing services, meaning you can print out your passport photo template in no time. 

Passport photo template- how many pictures does it contain? 

Our passport photo template is of the standard postcard size of 10cmx15cm, which means it fits 4 passport photos of the dimensions of 35mmx45mm. Once it is ready, you can use the template as many times as needed to print out additional photos.

Digital passport photo

In the UK, you are able to apply for a passport online. This means that there's often no need to print out your passport photographs since you can just upload them as a file to the government’s site. In case, however, that you wish to apply for your passport in person, Tesco could be a great option to do that. since you'll easily print out your passport picture in a Tesco shop. 

However, if you simply require a digital photo, you'll want to try our PhotoAiD app. In a couple of seconds, after you have uploaded your photo, it'll be edited to the proper measurements, have the background erased and replaced, and will be checked in terms of compliance with the official requirements. You'll be able to take the photo at any place and at any time, and our online editing tool will do all the rest. The photo you get with our software can be utilised for passport applications straight away.

Guidelines for the UK passport photo 

Please take the time to read the requirements listed below to make sure your passport photo gets accepted right away. If you use our passport photo template, remember there is no need to think about the proper photo size or framing, as those will be done for you automatically. Instead, remember to:

  • Maintain a neutral facial expression (no smiling or frowning is allowed) and close your mouth but keep your eyes open
  • Face the camera 
  • Make sure your whole face is clearly visible 
  • Wear any outfit except military uniforms
  • Remove glasses, headphones, or hair accessories as well as big pieces of jewellery that might cover your face (headgear is allowed for religious reasons only, and if you must wear glasses for medical purposes, make sure they do not cover the eye and that there is no glare)
  • Use a picture taken within the last month, to make sure it reflects your appearance correctly 

Take your digital passport photo at home!

When applying for a British passport online, you are required to submit a digital passport photo

Apart from meeting the same requirements as those for printable passport photos, there are technical requirements concerning the photo’s quality (at least 600 x 750 pixels, but best to make it 900 x 1200 pixels) and the file size, which must be between 50 KB and no more than 10 MB. If you want to save time, just use PhotoAiD. Your uploaded photo will be ready for download in less than 3 seconds. 

Infant & baby passport photo at Tesco

The requirement to own a valid passport when travelling internationally applies to all without exceptions, including children and babies. 

While filling out a passport application form on behalf of your child is a fairly easy process, taking a good passport photo might prove a bit more of a challenge. Instead of taking your baby or child to a photo booth or kiosk, why not take a passport photo in the comfort of your own home using our passport photo template, only to print it later? 

Just remember that the baby/child has to have their whole face visible and their eyes open (this doesn’t apply to newborns). It might be easier to lie the baby down and take a picture from above or to support the head with your hand (but the hand cannot be visible in the picture). For all other requirements, such as a plain white photo background, rely on PhotoAiD’s algorithm to do the job for you!
