Default Photo Specifications for Visa

How difficult can this be.....

Went this morning with the family to get the photo's done, the guy who took them was shaking a little bit... got them home and although the photo's were okay the way he cut them using the template cutter was laughable, they were all over the place!!

Went back this afternoon to get them re-done, the kids photo's look really pasty and my picture from chin to crown is too big (33mm instead the max of 30mm).

What a wind up!! £26 to get them done and looks like I'll be going back a 3rd time to get them right

Has anyone had any experience of applications being rejected for photo's not being just right?

Thanks.

If you have a decent photo printer, 6x4 photo paper and a guillotine (or a straight edge and a sharp knife), this gets perfect results:

i printed my own for my PR application. just cropped the picture to the right proportions and set the printer to print the required size. PR was approved a few weeks ago so they don't seem to have had a problem with this.

...sent my passport off for the visa a few days before christmas and did the same again with those pictures so hope i'm not tempting fate opening my mouth now !!

For anyone in the UK, try http://www.picturelizard.co.uk. I took my own pictures then emailed them in to them - very quick turnaround, I just quoted the spec and they did as asked.

One of the few things that was a reasonable deal in the whole migration process.
