  • Face too small in frame
  • Wearing glasses


  • Your front shot must be straight-on to the camera.
    Resist the temptation to tuck your chin in, or raise it up, or look out the corner of your eyes. Having your head straight and level in your photos is the single most important requirement.
    If you can see the same amount of each ear, then your head is probably straight.
  • Your entire head must be in the photo.
  • Your hair should not cover your lower forehead or any part of your face.
  • Your face should be clean, with no makeup!
  • Your mouth should be closed. You can still smile (no grinning), make silly faces and grimaces.
  • Your chin should be slightly elevated as if you’re looking just above the camera.
  • Focus your eyes on something just above the camera, rather than into the distance, to avoid a spacey look.
  • You should not be wearing glasses.
  • Flash diffusers can be used.
  • The camera should be at least 3 feet (i.e. 1 meter) away from the face.
  • Flash lighting can be used to avoid shadows on your face.
  • Your photos should be in focus, large and crisp. The face part of the photo should be 700 or more pixels high (use your camera’s highest quality setting). Most image formats are supported.
  • Take the photo against a plain background (not essential) – try a light-colored wall.
  • Avoid uploading huge photos (>1.5MB) as this might overload our servers. Reduce the size by cropping around the facial area first and increasing the JPEG compression ratio. If you are buying a gift, best to email us your large photos so we can get the best quality out of them.
