In the photo copy shop next to Ofi Papel at Los Cristianos or opposite the Police Station at Las Americas.

Booths are no use to you if you want UK type passport photos.

Booths have a white background and produce smaller prints than required. Your photos will be rejected and sent back

The UK require a photo to be taken with a grey or cream background I'm fairly sure and a larger size print.
I got mine done at the photo shop next to Tele Pizza in Los Cris a couple of hundred yards up the duel carriage way on the left towards Las Americas from the Apolo center.

It cost me €10 for a professional photo and the prints cuts to correct size.

Very good carpenter, I've used them before, and he even lets you preview them on the screen before he prints them.
If you don't like the original, he will take another one for you, without extra charges. :tiphat:

any decent photographic shop should have the facilities and they know the correct rules for how the picture should look.

That's what I did at my local photographers and he's done about 4 sets of different prints for me now and it was only about 3 or 4 euros per set of 4. That's Foto Too in Guia de Isora.
berni, it would help if you told people where you are located so that we're not just naming places all over the island ;) :)

Good point C. The days of any old snap have gone.

The photos must be correct.

My daughter, who had her UK passport renewed last year, had her photos rejected because a wisp of hair, which we never noticed, partly interfered with one of her eyes.

Ever had that feeling you've wasted your time completely? :laugh:

What ?Are you the new mod ?
Your comment was:

I was pointing out that booths are permissable if approved !

look at the title, your comment was in reference to a booth in St Eugenio. I said it won't be any use.
Where did it say are booths in UK ok to use?
