Our easy to use print cropping feature allows you to crop your photos to get maximum impact. Simply make sure what you want printed on your photos appears in the orange box.

  • Supply two identical photos with your application
  • Must be a portrait orientated photo (so don't choose our landscape crop or shrink to fit options)
  • Photos must be colour (not black & white)
  • Taken against a plain cream or plain light grey background
  • Taken within the last month
  • Face free from shadows
  • Eyes are open and clearly visible (no sunglasses or tinted glasses, and no hair across your eyes)
  • No reflection or glare on your glasses, and the frames must not cover your eyes (where possible, we recommend you remove your glasses)
  • Eyes must be free of red-eye
  • Face forward looking straight at the camera
  • Have a neutral expression with your mouth closed (no grinning, frowning or raised eyebrows)
  • You must be on your own (no other people on the photo and babies must be without toys or a dummy)
  • Your head should be shown without any covering, unless worn for religious beliefs or medical reasons
  • Nothing covering your face
  • Photo is sharp and clear
  • Strong definition between face and background
