A couple quick questions about ID Book photos . . .

Are they the same size as Passport Ones (35mm x 45mm)?

Do they need to be Black and white?​

Recently had both passport and ID photos taken ... the ID photos are smaller and need to be more of your head rather than your shoulders as well. Also you can't smile for ID photos ... but you can for passport photos. Bottom line ... there is a difference.

I've got a suspicion that when I crop the passport photo to ID photo size it will sort itself out.

They're doing ID books at the local community hall so there was a mad rush on ID photos today - I did 15 sets this morning. I really need to work on that workflow.

So far none have been rejected. :)

Slang (pardon the pun) for the green ID book. or the green passport, depending on where you grew up.
