Resize photo for passport

Every U.S. citizen needs a passport picture that meets the requirements posed by the State Department. One of the criteria concerns the correct passport photo size: it must be 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm) to pass through a compliance check.

If you have a picture that meets all the requirements but is not cropped correctly, don’t worry. Thanks to various tools available on the market, resizing your image to a passport-size one is possible. One of them is PhotoAiD®—an advanced passport picture resizer that follows state regulations to provide you with a 100% compliant, satisfying passport photo.

Resizing passport photos—options

Those who wish to apply for a U.S. passport but need a properly-cropped picture can use different apps, tools, and programs. Thanks to them, applicants can get an image close to the passport-size one. 

However, many applications (IDPhoto4You or 123passportphoto, for example) require users to resize their pictures manually. This may result in inadequate dimensions or minor mistakes that applicants unintentionally skip. 

On the other hand, programs with built-in cropping tools do not offer a compliance check, so there is no acceptance guarantee.

If you are wondering how to resize an image to passport size, look no further.

PhotoAiD® is a perfect solution for all U.S. citizens who do not want to spend time analyzing the size requirements and editing their pictures. The application takes only 3 seconds to smoothly resize photos to passport size for your U.S. documents.

The advanced AI technology does not only crop and resize the image to the required dimensions but also adjusts the background. It can also remove shadows or some objects appearing in the picture.

After all the automatic processes are finished, every picture is carefully reviewed by one of the biometric photography experts. As a result, customers receive a satisfying, 100% compliant passport-size picture.

PhotoAiD® comes as a website or a mobile application on Android and iOS. Try it today and see how to resize a photo for a U.S. passport without a hassle!

U.S. passport photos: size and other requirements

As with all official documents, U.S. passports have specific requirements that applicants must follow. There are also certain criteria when it comes to pictures used in passports.

For a printed U.S. passport photo to be accepted by authorities, it must:

  • measure 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm);
  • have a white background;
  • be of high quality;
  • be taken within the last 6 (six) months;
  • have the applicant’s head between 1 inch to 1 ⅜ inch in height;
  • present the applicant with a neutral facial expression, open eyes, closed mouth, and fully-visible face, looking directly at the camera.

American citizens who wish to submit their digital passport photo must remember about other requirements that apply to this image type. An acceptable digital image is:

  • between 600 x 600 px and 1200 x 1200 px;
  • in color, according to the sRGB color space;
  • of high quality, without blurs;
  • no larger than 240 kB;
  • uploaded as a JPEG file.

While taking their U.S. passport photos, applicants cannot wear:

  • uniforms, camouflage, or any outfits resembling the two;
  • eyeglasses, unless they are supported by a signed doctor’s statement, or sunglasses;
  • jewelry and hair accessories that obscure the applicant’s face.

Moreover, individuals must wear their hair in a way that allows authorities to see the applicant’s fully-visible face. Facial piercings and tattoos are acceptable.

Make sure you follow these dress code-related requirements. For the technical ones, let PhotoAiD® give you a hand, and be confident about your compliance-guaranteed passport photo!

Frequently Asked Questions

❓ How do I resize a photo to passport size?

U.S. citizens can resize their photos to passport size using different applications or tools. However, most of them require users to do it manually. We recommend trying PhotoAiD®, which automatically crops and resizes any image to a passport-size one.

❓ How can I resize my photo to passport size for free?

There are free applications available on the internet. However, they do not guarantee a compliance check, and because of the manual cropping, users may not resize pictures perfectly. For compliance-guaranteed passport photos that are automatically cropped, resized, and adjusted to U.S. photo requirements, use PhotoAiD®.
