Detailed Steps to Print Passport Photos at Walgreens Photo
Step1: Get a digital 2″ x 2″ passport photo and a 4″ × 6″ photo sheet in seconds from aipassportphoto.com
It’s easy to take a photo with your mobile phone but converting it to a qualified passport photo by yourself is time consuming and error prone. You need to resize your photo, remove the background, and crop it to the right size. This process might take hours and it may still fail to meet the government guidelines.
Luckily, aipassportphoto.com can smooth out the whole process in seconds with the latest computer vision and artificial intelligence technology. Just upload a photo of you in any background. It will automatically scale, resize your photo and remove the background for you. Everything is automatically done in about 6 seconds! Give it a shot if you want to save your time.
Why a 4″ x 6″ photo sheet instead of 2″ x 2″?
Walgreens Photo does not print 2″ x 2″ directly. So we need to order a 4″ x 6″ photo sheet that consists of two identical 2″ x 2″ passport photos. See an example below.

Step2: Order Online
It is our recommendation that you order your photo prints online. You don’t want to spend time learning how to use the photo kiosk at Walgreens.
Therefore, please upload a 4″ x 6″ photo provided to you by aipassportphoto.com. (DO NOT upload a 2″ x 2″ photo).
Step3: Pick up and Cut It
You will be notified by email or text once your photo order is ready. Same day pick up at a nearby store. (Covid-19 update: Walgreens also offers delivery service)
Because your order is a 4″ x 6″ photo. Walgreens is not responsible for cutting it out for you. You need to cut it by yourself. (If you are not confident in cutting it, you can order two photo sheets, one for cutting practice 🙂
Last but not least, double check your passport photo.
aipassportphoto.com can take care of the size and background requirements, but you should also be careful with your own passport photo:
- No eyeglasses.
- Keep mouth closed(neutral expression).
- No shadow on your face. Light on face are balanced.
- Photo is not blurred, dark or overexposed.
- Person in the photo should look forward.
- Ears/Eyes are not hidden.
