Found 5th Nov 2014
discovered Asda do 6 x passport photos for 64p. need to take an image either on your phone, memory stick etc and use the machine, printed in an hour. (I went evening and it took 10 mins).

took a photo on white background then crooped it and save the image. perfect for buspasses etc

much cheaper than the photo booths.

Nice tip!

Did mine for about 20p in Boots (think it's now double that) having used the DoItYourself bit of
http://www.epassportphoto.com/

to process a photo into acceptable format, but idea that Asda's machines sort it for you is a nice touch, subject to providing an acceptable source picture of course - the epassportphoto site even provides a link to gov.uk requirements, ie
gov.uk/pho…rts

That's what I done too. Printed at Tesco for 18p, I think
Here's another site... IDPhoto4u.com

yeah, this has been around for some years, I had some taken of my children for a key ring.

I've done most of mine at home printed on photo paper. Found free software to get size right online.
This time I used the government online passport beta service. You fill out details online and print out completed forms. Saves worrying about writing outside lines. Then just send relevant pages/pics and old passport to them, no extra cost involved other than ink. You don't need to print out all pages they issue, look though forms before printing as half are to help you and don't require posting, saves a little more especially if using genuine inks.

these are no good for passports i sent them off they were rejected the quality isnt very good i suppose for hus passes its ok

Great price for photos for ID use other than passports I would say as mentioned above, unless you are confident you can meet the criteria, this depends obviously on what nationality you are...stipulation for UK passports here

Why did you send them off if the quality wasn't good?

Nice and cheap

Sorry should have said passport size photos. the quality is certainly good enough but you would have to be pretty acurate with positioning within photo but im sure there is stuff online that could do that prior to you getting it printed.

It's VERY hard taking a right back ground. I took 3 pictures and 2 came awful and 1 was okay, for 3 application passports.

If you used a mobile to take the picture then that could be why they were rejected. You should be fine if you use a proper camera.

Just done this. These photos are slightly larger than the strict passport measurements,so trimmed ours. The image has to be the correct size. You can tinker on the screen. Got our passports on second attempt. Would use again and cheaper than a booth.

So you've taken photos with a mobile and had them accepted for a passport?

I got the 6 family members passports done for them by taking pic myself on a Samsung s3.

Tips:
Obviously a neutral background
Take pics during day so you avoid shadows from using a flash.
Getting as close as possible to the subject within the set guidelines and taking the pic straight on will reduce shadows.
If you really want to go the extra mile, use a photo booth to take your pic in (with your own camera). Bit cheeky I know but you'll almost do away with shadows, background and light problems. ...

Anyway thanks for the tip OP

yeah be very careful if you're going to use these for passports,most photo booths are bio metric now,so using this may not be accurate

kinda a pointless deal tho most are

ok £5 / £6 in a machine any more where you can be lazy and get it right with out having to do it your self, and get them signed once

£.64p or less, doing a lot of work your self more so if you get it wrong and pay postage again to resent your passpost apply forms in, not counting the wasted time getting them all signed and resigned as you must do any more even for renewals

a passport lasts for 10 years and costs £77.50 now itselfs, really not worth saving up £4.36 over 10 years LOL

might be already to get lots of cheap photos to put your name and number on and hand out to drunk chicks when clubbing tho

You really have to be quite thick to get it wrong but then looking at your post ...

I didn't know that, just sent my hubbies off. Next time. Thanks.

Does anyone know the lapse in time between photos? I have a family of 6, and it'd be of so much financial benefit if I can do it at 10p a head; also do I need to attach a child seat to the swivel chair for my two month old, and if so, how do I do that?
Thanks in advance

Rubbish. Biometric or not the only info it can get is from the detail on the photo. If you print a quality photo it doesn't matter. I did 4 kids and an adult on a digital camera at home using epassporte - printed off on a kodak self service machine - had no issues.

yes so the photo has to have your face in a specific position,so it can scan your face in a certain area most people who just use a PHONE to take a pic wont do this properly and the application will be declined

ofc shes thinking about the booths with time between each photo (thoese are about 20 years old), this is for digital taken your self photos printed off at adsa photo machines witch you can just take in your own time at home,

You could use a CAMERA instead, though I really don't understand what you're talking about... The face takes up the majority of the space so it would be pretty difficult to put the face in the "wrong area". The face merely needs to be in the middle of the photo - hardly rocket science!

I took my own photo for my passport and driving licence and both of them were accepted with no questioning. Follow the guidelines and I really don't see how you can mess it up.

I still don't unserrstand why the photo taken from a phone is any different to one taken by a camera? As long as you follow the guidlines and crop your photo prior to printing it serves the same function.

Good Deal

Nice one

Looks like you are on the wrong website. This deal saves you around 90% on the 'lazy' route so is hot. There is lots of info available on how to get the photo right so no reason why you would have to do it more than once. What difference does it make that you only have to do it every 10 years, its still a 90% saving.

So all these years I've been paying £5 for 4 passport sized photographs from the post office machines...f**k my life! Heat added!

Great prices there for passport sized photos - ideal if you are having to attach your photo to anything such as an application form, student railcard, nus card etc especially if they aren't quite as strict as the passport regulation photo requirements.

We have had our passport ones done at Snappy Snaps in the past as they can show you the picture and retake if you are not happy with it, when my teenage daughter had her passport done a few years ago it got rejected - the passport office called me and apologised but said because of her very pale complexion they were having trouble getting it to scan and wondered if we could get another one taken - we had a bit of a laugh about it at the time as we were watching Twilight and we decided she was clearly a vampire and her image couldn't be copied as vampires haveno reflection!

She was not so amused and her second passport photo has a very grumpy looking face on it! Snappy Snaps did not charge us for the second lot when I explained why we needed them and let us keep the first lot as well in case we could use them for anything else.

My god why do these posts turn in to a bitch fight. Always remember pay cheap pay twice. Everyone has there own mind so u decide.

I used the boots machine also. Took picture on phone standing next to white wall then bluetoothed it to the boots machine and paid about 20p I think *I didn't use the photos for passport but for other passes I needed to use. Saying that the quality is excellent so could easily use for passport if you had a good source photo

This is my first post!

Dear me...What have i started?

Just to clarify I bought these as I needed passport size photos for my student son for ID cards, bus passes. I thought it was such a bargain I should share.

Thanks for sharing we don't have as Asda by us but us but I have voted hot as I think it's a great price and ideal for all the photos you need as a student etc, I know from experience that my three children had to have endless passport port sized photos taken when they were at school and college for one thing or another so I am sure this will come in handy for someone and the fact others are mentioning other places may help others too.

I only put in my post about snappy snaps because your post reminded me of the weird experience we had with my daughters photo (and the irony of watching Twilight when passport office phoned) trust me no teenage girl wants to be told their image will not scan!

So welcome to HUKD and I hope you continue to share - we are a friendly bunch really

I did my whole family passport pictures, saved a fortune. All pictures were accepted.
Make sure the sizing is correct. No shadows, background all within the guidelines etc.
