    On the face of it, There is no difference between taking a digital photo and going to a booth to get a set of 4 visa pictures done and scanning one.. you have to make sure you do the 4 set, not the 5 for passport. The USA website talks about uploading a passport type photo but that is misleading. The passport one is rectangular and smaller that the 2 inch square that is required for their application.

    i have tried before to take a digital picture myself and use that. I am a pretty good photographer but ended up pulling my hair out trying to make the phone fit their box online. It isnít just the size, there are specifications about the height between the eyes and the top of the picture, the mm between the eyes and the chin etc. The site kept saying that it was wrong and I had to alter it. In the end, I had a distorted grainy picture that I was ashamed of, and it was accepted!
    I would suggest therefore that you go to a booth and spend £6 on a set of 4 VISA pictures, scan one - that is where the 300 dpi comes in, that is the setting you use on the scanner. The default is probably 600 dpi. Check the file size fits the maximum requirements and upload it.
    if you do not have a scanner then perhaps you can visit a shop that takes pictures and ask then to supply it to you on a memory stick if you take one with you. Tell them that it is for a visa application and the size parameters of the file. This is likely to cost you double the price of the booth.

    Thanks, John, you made me chuckle re the distorted grainy picture! Mine aren't usually the best visualisation of myself, currently I look like Casper the Ghost!

    So, just to clarify, I scan one of the 2inchx2inch (Visa photograph) using the 300dpi setting and then just upload onto the form? What about the bit where it mentions about being 600pixels by 600pixel bit? I thought once scanned, I would need to play around with the photo reflecting that 600x600 pixels. It is ever so confused......Do you not read the same as I am interpreting it?

    You can use software like photoshop elements or the free ĎGimpí to size the picture to ď600 pixels square if the scan didnít go right. If you scan a 2 inch picture at 300 dpi, it should be 600 pixels. Pixels and dpi are the same really.

    Hi John,

    Last night, I went to my scanner settings and noticed that the resolution was in PPI and not DPI (assuming both are the same thing)? Anyway, I changed the default settings from 200 to 300PPI and then scanned the image and uploaded it onto my computer. When I checked the photograph's properties, the dimension was 592x574 PX. I am very confused, should it not be 600x600 pixels when you scan a 2inch by 2inch photo at a resolution of 300 ?

    I then did what you said about editing it in GIMP, so after changing both the X and Y to 600 pixels at a resolution of 300, the file size is too big for the US embassy's requirements. It is 328kb. I am really stuck and also feel like an idiot for not be able to do this task.

    Please help me
