Take Passport Photo
At Home in 4 Steps

1. Upload a regular picture

Use any phone with a good camera to take a picture of yourself. Any background will do as long as you stand straight and look into the camera with a neutral expression. Then, upload the newly taken image to convert it into a Big W passport photo template.

2. Let us prepare it for you

First, we will crop your photo to the correct passport photo size and remove its background. Once it's done, we will double-check it against all the requirements (for head height, lighting, hair, quality, etc.) to make sure it's ready to be printed and submitted.

3. Get passport photo preview

As soon as your picture is converted, check it out. If you don't like your new passport photo, you can retake as many photo shots as you need and pick the best one. Each try is free—take your perfect biometric photo conveniently without any haste or hassle!

4. Save photo and print it at Big W

When you're happy with your picture, download the Big W passport photo template. It's ready for your passport application—just use the store's printing service and have it printed on a 4x6 piece of glossy paper. As an option, you can order delivery.
