Clearwater Digital UK Passport Photos

UK digital passport photos have very strict guidelines. At Jonathan Fanning Photography, we are familiar with these requirements and can provide you with passport photos tailored to their exact specifications. 

The whole process takes approximately 15 minutes to take the photo, resize it for the digital specifications and then email it to you. During your application process, you will be asked to upload your passport photo or provide a code. Please note that the code is only for “photobooth” type passport photo businesses and with our process, you will just upload it during your renewal application process. We 100% guarantee passport photo acceptance.

Rules for UK digital passport photos

The quality of your digital photo

Your photo must be:

  • clear and in focus
  • in colour
  • unaltered by computer software
  • at least 600 pixels wide and 750 pixels tall
  • at least 50KB and no more than 10MB

What your digital photo must show

The digital photo must:

  • contain no other objects or people
  • be taken against a plain light-coloured background
  • be in clear contrast to the background
  • not have ‘red eye’

If you’re using a photo taken on your own device, include your head, shoulders and upper body. Do not crop your photo – it will be done for you.

In your photo you must:

  • be facing forwards and looking straight at the camera
  • have a plain expression and your mouth closed
  • have your eyes open and visible
  • not have hair in front of your eyes
  • not have a head covering (unless it’s for religious or medical reasons)
  • not have anything covering your face
  • not have any shadows on your face or behind you

Photos of babies and children

Children must be on their own in the picture. Babies must not be holding toys or using dummies.

Children under 6 do not have to be looking directly at the camera or have a plain expression.

Children under one do not have to have their eyes open. You can support their head with your hand, but your hand must not be visible in the photo.

Children under one should lie on a plain light-coloured sheet. Take the photo from above.

How do I upload my new UK Passport Photo?

After a few questions at the very beginning of your application renewal process; you will be prompted to upload your new passport photo. Once you upload your passport photo the system will automatically scan your photo to insure that it meets all photo requirements. Be sure to do this from a laptop or a desktop as mobile devices often resize image files.
