Passport photo

Just wanted to gaze how easy it is to attempt to do a UK passport photo at home. I was hoping i could submit it online but it no longer does it.

I have color laser printer, so would appreciate what tools i need?

You can submit it online.
what do you mean it no longer does it?

as far as i am aware the facility to submit an online renewal where you also submit a photo that you have taken is there. i did it recently for my husband's passport renewal. you can't do it for new passport applications.
I recently did an online renewal but on the previous occasion, I printed my own photo and it was all pretty straightforward.
Just follow the framing guidelines and make sure it's printed at the right size.
can you do yur own pic on a phone and use them ??
I have done all my kids photos by putting the picture in Word and sizing to 3.5 x 4.5 cm. Never had an issue. Not done online though.

i see. perhaps they don't allow online submission of photos for children passport. people have used passport photo websites to create photos for submission, but i have never used it. only for visa application.
Did this using an iphone for online renewal, last month with no issues. Just watch out for getting to many shadows or highlights in the shot. The rules for an acceptable photo are on the website. Did a hard copy and print at home for US visa using this site idphoto4you.com/
It's got to be done on photographic paper so you could upload a picture to a printing service online and have it delivered. Here are the full rules, there are quite a few and they will reject it if it's not right so take a look. With todays programs cropping it to the right size and making sure your face fills the frame etc should be easy. gov.uk/pho…rts
as airbus330 said, you could use that website then print at boots for 25p as shown in deal posted below
