Passport Photos x8 for 35p @ Google Play

Found 4th Jun 2012
Great Deal here: Android App allows you to take a passport sized photo, then duplicate it up to 8 times, and allow you to print it out as a normal sized photo (e.g. 7" by 5"), the average print out at this size should be between 25p and 35p. (I'm sure there must be a similar app for iphone).

NOTE: Android App is FREE, you only pay for the print out of a normal sized photo.

Needed to renew my passport, so took pictures on Galaxy S2 using this app, went to a local chemist to print, he caught on to what we were doing then tried to charge £6.50!!! Went to another they charged 25p, but at the same time were a bit bemused. A good thing the embassy accepted the photos (with a cream or grey background of course), so saved myself £9ish (£4.50 per 4 photos at Photo booth)

From the app page (Android Market):

"Click, Save, Print - Your one stop solution to all passport photo needs.

This application allows you to create Passport photosheet using the phone's camera with a single click, totally FREE!
Features:
- 1 click passport photosheet creation
- Print saved image on a 4x6 photo paper using any photo printer.
- Supports official passport photo requirements of US, Canada and UK. More countries are supported in our Passport Photo Plus application."

Good luck saving!

If you want to do it on a proper camera and pc
nice lol needed to do sons pics!
this is a great way to save money but can possibly be rejected for a passport (one of the criteria is: photos must be professionally printed photographs printed at home are not acceptable) and whilst they're not technically printed at home, they are also not professionally printed.
Even if you do the check and send service at the post office your photos can still be rejected by IPS
This kind of posts .... not again please ...

I have had the local chemist take a photo (from the services they offer), it looked worse then the recent ones I took with my phone, but was still accepted by the IPS.

The Passphoto services offered by the chemists/ shops are no better then what we can do ourselves.

Says it's free now.
nice free
But, the problem then is to cut it up properly.
How do you neatly cut out all 8 pics ?

Seriously.... it is not that hard, just like cutting the 4 you get from the photo booth.

Done quite a few passport photos at home, and they have all been accepted. I guess it depends on how good the original picture is, if you comply with the requirements and have a good photo quality printer.
Me too, I've printed drivers licence and passport photos at home.
Used Illustrator to get the right dimensions and printed on photo paper with inkjet printer.
No problems at all
I remember trying to take some passport photos at home few years ago. It was not exactly easy Finding the right colour background, taking a photo without any shadows in them and cutting the photos to the exact dimensions without damaging or marking the photos. I think i'd rather pay the 3 or 4 quid that Lloyds pharmacy charge in my area. The DIY ones may be all right for visa photos but i would not go through all that trouble trouble for Passport/drivers license photos again.

What they say is that photos printed at home are 'not likely' to be of an acceptable quality.

Our last passport photos were taken at the local chemist professionally as part of a passport service. They were tested on a chart to see if they were the correct size, brightness etc and all 4 were rejected by the passport office. so next time I want any sort of I.D photo I'll try this.

I'm amazed people need an app to make this happen, clearly I should have spotted the gap in the market years ago!

I've done passport photos for 4 lots of people at home using my SLR and photoshop to resize the images. I would say only do this if you know you have a well diffused flash on hand, direct flash is useless if your neutral background is at all close to your subject.

Very constructive comment, well done.

I did actually try this out once on Android or at least something similar and it was ok. However, you do need to get the lighting right and use a decent phone camera because the photos I did for my friend took a few attempts before we got one accepted. I found the best way to do it was in the office with a white wall behind them and window in front of them with daylight shining in. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious!

Oh yeah, forgot to say that's probably just like what we did. The app I had formatted the photos onto a standard 4x6 print so my friend just went into Tesco and used the machine there to print them.

I love that the picture they use is of a film camera, which you can't use their services with
Photos taken at home 0p

Create passports size photo sheet 0p

Walk\Drive to your local Boots/Tesco photo centre 0p - £1.33

Parking 40p

Photo print 39p

Watching the rude photo shop owner (who gives a damm about photo quality and the customers) going out of business - priceless
I wouldn't necessarily use this for a passport but certainly for things like university/library applications and they're less likely to be fussed about things like if the background is exactly the right shade.

who has 8 passports?



Jason Bourne or James Bond! Just realised as I typed that that their initials are both JB, freaky coincidence or international spy ring necessity?
I had to get these kind of photos for m husband fr driving licence photo renewal, my son for his first driving licence and an id card for my other son! cost me £15 in a booth! wish I had this then!

I've been using sites like this for a number of years for UK and US passports, driving licences, Home Office forms, for me and my family and never had the slightest problem. I either printed at home or just had a standard photo printed somewhere.

Thanks
report that Chemist to Trading Standards! It's one less thing for the public to get mugged off on! Power to the people!
p.s. used this for myself and others to look like those airbrushed types on magazines thanks to Photoshop...flawless as fcuk
False economy if you don't get the specification right. Spend 10 minutes at a professional photographers studio, zero hassle.Most guarantee them as well.

I just wanted to correct the misinformation in this post.

Photographs printed at home *ARE* acceptable. IPS merely says: "Photographs printed at home are unlikely to be of a sufficient quality"

With sufficient care and by following the rules, home printed photographs are perfectly acceptable.

In my case, I've only used home printed photos for my last 2 passports (yes, 12 years ago and 2 years ago), my wifes, and my kids passports x6 - all taken and printed at home, and happily accepted by the IPS.
If you already have a printer at home, you only have to buy a batch of glossy photo-paper(pricy but lasts forever) and people won't be able to tell the difference.

Have to agree. I have printed 2 lots of passport photos and 2 driving licence without problem.
Buy photo paper sheets at pound land.
But it involves walking or transport or P&P costs inbuilt too, no sheet Sherlock
Damn , ....wish this was posted sooner cost me £15 last week for mine and two kids photos for renewal , got 8 pics each , WHY ????? as the IPS only require 2 so what do i want with the other bloody 6 , wouldnt mind if they were decent but yet to see a 'nice' passport pic
