Instantly Crop Your Photo to 35×45 size

The required UK passport photo size is 35×45 mm in printed form. In inches, it is equal to 1.38x1.77. If you apply for your British passport online, the minimal required digital passport photo format is 600 pixels wide and 750 pixels tall. 7ID allows instant resizing of images to these dimensions.

Our 7ID Passport Photo Editor will adjust the correct head size and eye line. This app considers all country-specific dimensions when you select the country and document.

Change the Photo Background to the Plain White

It's standard for most ID photos, including British passports, to have a light-coloured background. To change the background of your passport photo to white, just move the slider to the left in 7ID. For best results, the initial photo should be taken on a plain background.

Prepare the Photo for Printing

7ID offers a print template for passport photos in two formats: (*) A digital one for online submission at; (*) One for printing on 6×4 inches (10x15 cm) photo paper. Each printed sheet contains four images. Simply cut them out and attach them to your passport application.

How to Prepare a Proper UK Passport Photo?

Today's advantage is that you don't necessarily need a photo studio to take your passport photo; you can take the photo yourself. Not sure how to take a passport photo at home? Follow these simple steps:

(*) Choose natural light, preferably in front of a window, to avoid harsh shadows. (*) Place your phone on a solid surface or use a tripod for stability. (*) Sit or stand up straight and look directly at the camera. Maintain a neutral face or a subtle smile without showing teeth, and make sure your eyes are open. (*) Take multiple photos for variety and select the best one. Leave enough space around your head for possible cropping by the 7ID app. (*) Upload it to the app and let 7ID take care of the format and background of your picture.

Regardless of the document (passport, visa, or any other official application), 7ID guarantees a professional photo!
