Posted before but expired as price changed. Reminder for people needing photos, like I did today.
Cheap Photo Prints from 25p to 39p for Passport, or normal camera photos. Save spending £5 on booth photos.

Previous posted deals on Boots, Tesco, etc. have been expired, so thought to remind people as I just had a photo taken on my camera and printed at boots for 39p (25p if you wait an hour), giving me 8 ID photos as I needed some.
Take a photo (camera or phone) and print at Boots. Don't know about Tesco currently, others will comment.

Boots have 2 different types of machines:
1- One that does instant print out: size is 6"x4" (" is inches) giving 8 passport/ID card photos for 39p
The instant machine also does 8"x6" for 79p

2- Another cheaper type of machine which you can collect either a 6"x4" in an hour for 25p or 15p in 24hours.
This non-instant machine does larger photo sizes & bigger batches, ie. more than one print at a time.
Sizes for the second machine in inches: 6x4, 7x5, 9x6, 10x7, 10x5

They take SD Cards, USB stick, Bluetooth, CD, etc. and even phones (need cable) including iPhone.
Also was told if there are more than 100 photos on the iphone, the machine sometimes crashes.
I was told it was better to put them on SD card or USB etc. Put your photo(s) on the root so it goes quick.

The list of devices is in the link below:
boots.com/en/…92/
To find stores with machine: put in your postcode & in drop down the list (click EXPAND+ Find additional stores) & tick box: Kodak Instant Photo Kiosk, before clicking FIND button
boots.com/en/…age

In the instant machine at first screen it gives an option at bottom for ID (passport) photos at bottom, do not choose it.
Use one of the two links below to generate online multiple photos in a minute.
Then on instant machine instead of ID-photo option at bottom of 1st screen (complex steps & didnt work or me) just use normal photo print at top to print your 8 photos, easy single step.
TIP: Using fingertips on the touchscreen didn't work but using fingernails worked.

----------------------
BASICALLY IN BOTH LINKS NO NEED TO ENTER NAME EMAILS ETC OR CLICK ON FACEBOOK OR GUESTBOOK ETC. EASY STEPS, click on links below or read on if you need help:

If you need 8 ID photos go link 2 but for passport photos go to this first link which generates only 4 (can copy & paste yourself in graphic app later or then just go to link 2).
To generate your 8 passport photos use one of the two links below.

1- The first link has been posted a few times on this site but only generates 4 photos & half the area is left as green with a little advertising.
You can use this and then use MS-Paint or Photoshop etc. to copy and paste the 4 photos again.
This link has an advantage for passport photos though, it gives two green bars that tell you where the top of the head and bottom of the chin should be in it's interface to comply for passport photo rules.

- Choose United Kingdom then press button: get my photos.
- Upload your photo & Skip facebook option in step 1
- Follow instructions in step 2: make rectangle & move options etc, or press clear button to restart till happy
- In step 3 just click on words "NO THANKS" at bottom right
- On next screen just click on the little text at bottom saying "SKIP" giving you a Button: "Download passport photo sheet image"
epassportphoto.com/

2- If you just need 8 ID photos generated quickly use this link.
I came across it by chance and used it today but just saw it was posted in one of the comments on earlier expired threads too.
- Click button: Start Photo Booth, pops open a new window (make sure your system does not block it poping up)
- Upload your photo, click Browse button, tick box agree to conditions in line 2, click submit button in line 3
- In next screen move cropping rectangle where you like it
- In next screen leave it on 8 photos (or choose 4)
- In last screen just forget all the stuff about facebook or signing guest book: JUST CLICK ON THE THUMBNAILS OF YOUR PHOTO AT TOP, wait for download & done.
uk.portraitbooth.com/ (if pop up does not work click: uk.portraitbooth.com/up.php which might change in future)

Option 3- idphoto4you.com/ Thanks to voodoomox
----------------------

The photos at actual size (1800x1200 pixels for 1st link or 1790x1206 for 2nd link) seem large but just print them as normal photo on Boots instant machine (not ID PHOTO option at bottom of first screen) & they will come out fine.
If the price changes, just ask the mods to change the price instead of expiring the thread in future.

For passport photo use a camera against a bright wall or curtains and no shadows. Passport photo rules (also use the green bars on epassportphoto.com site interface too):
direct.gov.uk/en/…152
For passports be careful as your photo might get rejected and you lose your fee, so read the rules and make sure no shadows, head in correct poistion, etc. etc.

Do not know the prices at Tesco currently but others know and will tell you surely Shirley. Previous expired threads on Boots & Tesco, below.
No need to spend a fiver on a machine that might not work either.

hotukdeals.com/dea…785

P.S. Despite previous info in expired threads, Peeps are saying if your photos are rejected for passport, you do not lose the application fee, just send in new photos, which makes sense.

great, thanks
Sweet need some soom thanx
I have used the 8 ones and the photo sizes are bit diffrent. Didn't have the balls to send it to the passport office because of the size
Used this method on the Tesco photo booths worked fine for passport photos, cost 12p
Tried this last time was posted - applied for passport, got rejected and lost fee.

Fafftastic for the sake of a fiver...

That can't be true. Fee's are only retained on withdrawn/failed applications. If you sent new photos that met the guidelines the application would have been processed as normal without requiring a further fee.
paid a fiver for booth photos n they were abysmal! Didn't even look like me n it's hard to get them right at home. Got rejected twice with the post office check! so having them done professionally. Bloody annoying... Good price though if your not div, like me
Have them done professionally...costs more but most pro's guarantee them to be accepted. Worth it for peace of mind and no fannying around. Better quality too.
Great deal, can never have enough photo's of oneself I find
God knows what those who've had rejected applications did in their photos. As long as your photos meet the rules then I don't see how they can been rejected oO

I paid £4 for mine in a photo booth in the local train station, sent it via the PO check and send, the lady in the PO just cut the 4 photos in half and attached one half to the application with a paperclip (She didn't bother cutting them out individually) and I received my passport through the post in less than 2 weeks.

Cheers for this though OP, will definately try it when I need some more!

You are aware what a photo is don't you?

Its a snapshot of what you look like at that moment..
And I hope you are aware that I am aware of what I do look like.
Funnily enough, I don't have black eyes and what looked like grey rosacea.
Interestingly, I did all of my family's passport photos this way, and the Post Office passport checking service accepted all but mine. I went to Jessops as they recommended and had photo taken for around £6 for 8. This came out even worse, so evetually they accepted the ones taken by me over the ?professional ones from Jessops! As long as you stick to the guidelines from the links provided in epassportphoto website and get Post Office to check all the paperworks for the nominal fee, you should be ok. The website also caters for passport and visa photo requirements of many other countries.
There should be a section on HUKD for "Everlasting money saving tips". I've been doing this for years!

You can occasionally make a profit from this because boots have an offer that gives you 100 advantage card points when you have photos taken, so if you pay with points (34p for one 1 hour 6x4 print), you make a profit!
Not all machines in Boots can do this. The Lowestoft store cannot do this as they have recently installed new machines. I am not sure if these machines are getting rolled out across the whole of the UK.

I am an employee at Boots, you do not receive any points if you take off your points. The 100 points will only work if your paying cash ect.
cracking need some for a new bus pass.
Maybe being overly cautious but not sure that I would risk it for the likes of passport or driving licence.

But a cracker for things bus/train passes, student cards, and other non-official ID.
Most big ASDA stores do 4 passport photos for 69p(was last year) . you just have to take photo on your digital camera and take either SD card or put them on usb stick take to their counter and they will do everything for you. just search on google for guidelines for taking passport photo. piece of cake. i do this all the time. never had any issues.
I tried using epassportphoto, and it printed out 1mm longer (4.6), not sure if IPS will reject it.

They only have 4 photos at a time, unless you copy and paste in paint.

I use idphoto4you.com/ instead, it gave me the right length (4.5)

nice info thanks
Thanks, heat added
good stuff
Did this last time for a relative's passport but paid the P.O checking service fee before sending off. First attempt got rejected despite being within the ePassportPhoto guidelines. Things have to be mm perfect. The woman at the next counter to mine had hers professionally done and was also rejected. Too smiley, apparently.

I was shown via the official P.O template where my photos were out of spec and made the necessary adjustments. You only have to pay the P.O. fee once, so it might be a worthwhile investment if time is tight or you haven't done this before.
Need to put the 35mm*45mm visa photos into the 6*5 size. Does it suit 4 or 6 or 8? Cheers

Putting voodoomox's link into my info post, thanks.

The machine is really easy: put your media in (SD card, flash stick, phone & Cable, etc) machine & shows them - choose the one(s) photo you want to print - click the top main option on for a photo print (not bottom photo ID booth style icon). Basically 1 click job.

Also good for printing photos (not just booth style repeats) or printing business cards, invites, etc etc which you can design at home on PC/Mac with photos and/or graphics. For large numbers collect next day for cheaper.

You can get 8.
Just be careful with passport photos as there is a new clause on the passport website about home printed not available, so not sure how boots will work in conjunction with that.
The 1800*1200 "high res" photos from that e-biometric-harvesting site in first link. It is 66k which is not very sharp or high quality when you consider my original image was 800k with little waste. If you can do it yourself I would recommend that. If you don't already have GIMP, get it now and use a bit of math to DIY.

If there are borders how could epassportphoto possibly be expected to know what they are?

4 inches = 101.6mm so each photo is in fact invalid if no borders are used!

I'm going to have to trust to my understanding of the regulations and take my raw photo into boots and use their service while I'm there.

I've used it and is fine with IPS.
Hmm the Kodak machine in Boots (the ones that do the instant photos) automatically enlarge the photos so the passport photos end up a little bigger whereas the Boots 1hr/24hr ones do not. The Kodak machines are abysmal to work with as well, they're so slow! Also I scanned in my 'official' passport photos and photoshopped it a little to create 8 photos instead of 4, as well as to make myself a bit more beautiful
any cheap passport photos?
