Many pharmacies and photo studios can also print the free photo templates generated by sites such as ePassortPhoto.com.

U.S. Passport acceptance facilities are one-stop solutions for taking photographs and submitting passport documents and are located in public places, such as post offices, government offices or public libraries. Clerks at these locations can help ensure that passport photographs meet government requirements.

According to the U.S. Department of State's passport photo guidelines for 2015, applicants must submit one recent photograph measuring 2" by 2", taken on a white background and sized so that the head measures between 1" and 1 3/8".
