Default Photos for EAD/AP/H1/Etc. for $0.25 for 6

Recently, I made my own PP photos using http://www.epassportphoto.com/

This is a great service - It creates a jpeg file from a picture that you upload, and you can choose the "free" option in which you can save the jpeg file with 4-6 pictures in one frame (A 4" x 6" photo can yield 6 pp photos of 2" x 2"), and take it to Walgreens/Costco/Kinkos for a printout for $0.25 each. Otherwise you pay about $8-$12 for 2 photos at the same stores!!

For a family of 4, this equates to savings of ~ $40!!!

The site has all the tools for meeting various types of visa/pp/etc photo requirements for various countries.

apume, you have been using it for years, but did not feel like sharing with anyone like hinvin66 . Thank you hinvin66 for sharing the info with us.

Don't attack me for pointing out the fact.

Most WOLF camera and RITZ camera stores do the same thing for free. I have done this many times. Use a good digital camera and take the pics in memory stick or USB and they crop the photo to the right passport specifications. All you pay for is the print which is $0.25 or less.

Its good to know we have an online option as well. Thanks for the info hinvin66.

it is good if you can save some money. Make sure the print quality is good and meets the specifications.

We had our passport photos taken from Walgreens to file for AP. USCIS sent me an RFE requesting photos. I was not sure what was wrong the first time. I got the next set of photos done from the postoffice.

We did not take any shortcuts but still got an RFE for photos.

All i am saying is make sure you have good quality photos that meet the specs when you try doing it yourself.

Since i had to spend US $ 70 on passportport photos during july 2007 filing, i wrote my own app to format passport photos. some of my my friends and i used it for filing AP the last couple years. i can email it to any of you if you want it. just PM me.
you would need .NET framework(minimum version 2.0) to run it.
it supports indian passport photos too (3.5 cm by 4.5 cm)
