The procedure is very quick, the quality of service is also good.
I got the background of my photo changed to white, and the software gave me a warning
that my first photo wasn’t good quality (due to the indoor light).
The tips provided, on how to take a good passport photo by your cell phone camera,
are extremely useful. Thanks.

I love that they do not just print the photo,
they ensure the quality of the photo will be accepted by the passport authority.
They do not stop until they get it right. Awesome service. Can't wait to get my photos!

Brilliant service - each photo I took was analyzed and where it was not sufficient quality
I was able to retake for free. When one is up to standard they take it and remove the background
and make any changes necessary to get the photo to a standard where it will be accepted by the passport office.
The one sent got accepted no problem.
I would definitely recommend as probably the only way to pretty much guarantee your photo will be accepted.
