Passport Photos providers comparison
Here is a comparison of
Passport Photo locations and the prices in the USA. The most popular
places for getting Passport Photos are popular retails stores- Walmart,
CVS, Walgreens, Costco, Kinko's/Fedex Office, UPS Stores, US Post office
and AAA offices. Please note that this comparison is for "USA Passport
photos". Most of the stores in the list do not offer services for
passport or visa photos for countries other than the USA. Many countries
require to submit passport photos in sizes other than 2x2 inch. As an
example, Australian Passport Photo size is 35x45mm. UK and most EU countries
also require photos in that size but with a bit of differing requirements
for photo background, glasses, and head size in the photos. China, for
example, requires Passport Photos in size of 33 x48mm. Unlike for retail
stores, there are online businesses like us, http://www.onlinepassportphoto.com,
offer passport photos in any size and for any country for one low price.

and their passport photo size requirements.
For countries other than
USA, it is very difficult to get photos in local stores and sometimes
a customer has to pay around $20 to $50 for 2 photos! In our comparison,
we have excluded non-US passport photo prices.
Please take a note that there are some online businesses too
that provide passport photos but most of them do not fix or enhance
your photos to fully meet the passport or visa photo specifications
of a particular country! They just format pictures with online automated
tools and provide passport photos! In our experience, most of the photos
taken by nonprofessional photographers need manual enhancement/fixing
with regards to photo background, removing red-eye, fixing exposure
and/or removing shadows created by flash. We
manually process every photo to eliminate most of the risk factors with
your passport photos!

I really like your
service and the idea is quite innovative.

Hello. I picked up
my photos today. No issues. I just wanted to let you know how
pleased I am with the quality of the passport photos. They look
great! Yes, these are passport photos, not runway photos, but
you sure made them look great.
Walgreens had actually taken some passport photos for me previously
and the quality was poor. In addition, I was only given 2 photos
and they cost $2.00 more than the 6 that I received from PassportPhotos!
I will definitely use
you again. Thanks PassportPhotos!

Thanks to Internet
connectivity and digital cameras in most households, now there is a
new option for getting passport photos. Like most things on the Internet,
you can get passport photos for much less and without leaving the convenience
of your home. You take a frontal portrait photo of yourself and then
upload it with your order. Some passport photo experts on the Internet
will make passport photos for you for a low price with use of advanced
photo editing software.
As an example, OnlinePassportPhotos.com
offers 6 'passport photos' for a
price as low as $7.95. Compare this to passport photo prices of
other stores which usually runs from $8 to $15 for only 2 passport photos
and that too only for US Passport photos! Most stores can not make passport
photos for countries like Canada, UK, Germany, India, Australia or Japan.
With us, you can get passport or Visa photos for any country (Tell your
immigrant friends and they will really appreciate your referral).
Most online passport
photo sites will print and mail your photos. This can take around a
week for the photos to reach you. However, we offer Free Pick up
at your local store option so you can get photos within few hours. We
will prepare your photos and use the local stores to print the photos
for you so you can pick up photos within hours.
