Traveler’s FYI

Need a passport photo? Do it yourself passport photos are simple enough to size to the required 600 x 600 pixels (2” x 2”) in Photoshop, but if you don’t have a photo editing program or want a quicker method, you can use the simple crop tool on the government site:       http://travel.state.gov/_res/flash/cropper/FIG_cropper.html#

Just upload a photo that meets the standards listed here: http://travel.state.gov/passport/pptphotoreq/pptphotoreq_5333.html

    I figured it was easy to do. But I was in a hurry, so went to Walgreens..this week! I stood in front of a white background, and he snapped two pictures using a kodak digital camera. That’s it. OH! And you can smile, but don’t show teeth, and your ears must show.
    And it costs $10.

      I ended up doing my own because I didn’t like my mug shot from Rite Aide. They told me not to smile but I noticed in the examples online that you could smile moderately :)

    You can also take the photo by yourself and get it done through ePassportPhoto.com . It’s easy and free, I got mine done a month ago.
