  • There are two ways we can do this for you. If you pop into our store, we will actually snap a US Digital Photo with the correct background colour and then while you wait we will digitally crop it to the specifications required and we can do this for you for £9.99. We will then email it to you or save it to your USB drive so you can upload it later on.


  • If you are unable to come to our store, just email us your Digital US photo taken against a wall in your home via email and we will adjust it for you.
