White Passport Photo Background with PhotoBooth Online

  1. Get Result Instantly

    Should you choose to get your picture in a photo booth or a studio, this will prove effort- and time-consuming. Instead, get it at this website: we'll carefully edit your photo to the correct full-face proportions and size and change the background to white.
  2. Multiple Pictures

    Taking passport photos often implies some pressure. After all, you'll be stuck with the new headshot for the next ten years! With PhotoBooth Online, you needn't even think about that: just upload multiple photos online, convert them, and pick the best one.
  3. Get Printable Photo

    We won't just make you an officially-looking headshot—we'll process your image into a fully compliant 2 x 2 US passport-size photo. Once you've made a passport photo with a white background, you can have it printed on glossy photo-quality paper and submit the printout on the spot.
  4. Comply with Guidelines

    We'll make sure your photo meets the US rules. Just look at your digital camera directly, keep a neutral facial expression, and create a photo without distinct shadows. We'll do the rest: change, edit, and make a perfect passport photo backdrop. Submit your passport photo at an acceptance facility.
  5. Enjoy the Good Quality

    Our processing algorithms won't ruin your high-resolution photo. After we crop and change it to the correct passport size photo, and remove the background, the new photo for your passport will still look good and natural. Then we'll just apply a backdrop of a different off-white color, and that's it.
  6. Change Background

    Have you created a picture that you'd use as a passport photo if it weren't for other people or objects in the frame? No matter if there's a crowded street or a graffiti wall behind you, we'll change either for the passport photo background color of white required by the State Department.
  7. Save Some Money

    Getting a compliant image out of the house will cost you at least $10. Even if you make your own passport photo at home with another online service, it'll still be $9 (or way more). By contrast, we'll make you a compliant portrait for a low price.
  8. Edit Automatically

    Some other services just process your shot into a PNG file and make you edit it to the right size by yourself. (And some even alter your looks!) But we don't do that here. PhotoBooth Online changes and crops your high-quality photos correctly and automatically.
