You should also avoid wearing glasses, hats, or anything that covers your face. The photo should be clear and in focus.

Step 4: Adjust the size and position of your photo
In the passport window, you will see your photo on the left and a preview of how it will look on the passport on the right. You can use the tools on the bottom to adjust the size and position of your photo. You should make sure that your head is centered and fills most of the frame. You should also leave some space around your head and shoulders.
Step 5: Crop your photo
Once you are happy with the size and position of your photo, you can crop it by clicking on the crop button on the bottom right. This will remove any excess background or edges from your photo. You should make sure that your photo fits within the guidelines shown on the preview.
Step 6: Adjust the brightness and contrast of your photo
If your photo is too dark or too bright, you can adjust the brightness and contrast by clicking on the brightness/contrast button on the bottom left. This will open a slider that you can move left or right to change the brightness and contrast of your photo. You should aim for a natural and balanced look.
Step 7: Save your photo
When you are satisfied with your photo, you can save it by clicking on the save button on the top right. This will prompt you to choose a name and location for your photo file. You should save it as a JPEG file with high quality.
Step 8: Print your photo
After saving your photo, you can print it by clicking on the print button on the top left. This will open a print dialog box where you can choose your printer settings. You should select the paper size as 4x6 inches and the orientation as landscape. You should also check the fit to page option and set the margins to zero.
Step 9: Cut out your photo
Once you have printed your photo, you can cut it out using scissors or a paper cutter. You should follow the guidelines on the printout and cut out four identical photos that measure 2x2 inches each.
