You can take an ID picture at home, in an Aus Post office or in a shop like Officeworks (please note that not all stores can have your photo taken). If you’re in a hurry and search for a photographer who can take photographs fast per government authorities’ instructions and standards, or on the same day, choose to take individual photography at home. Here’s how you can take a photo for your Australian ID card (like Key Pass or some other) quickly:
Once your photo is ready, you can either use its digital version (e.g. for Keypass Digital ID) or print it out to attach to a paper application (like the form 1195 identity declaration)
Get a smartphone or a digital camera to take a photo on your own, without a photograph store employees help. Use a white background. Make sure that’s enough lighting in your room. Here’s how to create a good photo at home:
There are several ways you can have student and school children photos taken. For example, you do it yourself following the steps as described on this page above:
Before taking your uni face image, you should consult your University, Campus, or College administration on how to dress according to the educational institution rules. Check your school ID regulations to utilize proper background and print photos in the correct size.
The acceptable print size is 3.5 cm wide and 4.5 cm high. As stated in the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) recommendations, your image should be printed on gloss paper.
Regarding the standards for digital ID photos, your image should be at least 600 pixels in width x 750 pixels in height and have a resolution of at least 600 DPI (dots per inch).
Yes, you can take such an image here but please note that only a printed photograph can be attached to your application form.
In order to get a valid printout faster, you can use our background removal and crop page. Simply upload any usual picture where your face is fully visible and evenly lit. In a matter of seconds, we’ll make it into a fully compliant photo in two versions: a single JPEG file and a printable template with several copies of your image. We recommend printing out the latter—although you only need one ID photo to attach to the form 1195 identity declaration, you may need the other copies later (say, for your Keypass ID card, work permit, profile picture, student id card or another document).
