Passport photo size is the standard photos size that is used in most of the application forms. There is a possibility that for each country there is a different passport photo size standard. For example, in Brazil, it is 7×5 cm but it is 3.5×3.5 cm in India. Usually, we use professional service to create passport size photos but they can be really expensive, especially when you need them urgently. Nowadays, a color printer is a common device and most computer users have one. You can use a color printer to create your own passport size at home at a very economical price. Now, the next problem is how to convert any photo in a passport size photo at home because non-standard size may be not acceptable. If you have good Photoshop knowledge, you can do this at home using the Photoshop image resizing option. But non-technical users might find it difficult to convert a photo to standard passport size.
