Maybe it seems like a retarded question, but I suddenly started to wonder. When I had to bring in the photos for the green card during my visa process, they had all those goofy requirements about what should and shouldn't be shown on the picture. I read the instructions in the I-751 form and of course it explains how they want the pictures. But do I wear my glasses on the pictures? I remember what a hassle it was the last time I had pictures taken, because the photo place that the embassy had recommended didn't even seem to have a clue about the fact that I wasn't allowed to wear glasses in the pictures! So, I guess I just wanted to make sure before I go and have my picture taken tomorrow. ;)

Well, you are now supposed to send standard passport photos, which do allow you to wear glasses as long as they're not tinted and there's no reflection.

In the pics we sent with G's AOS (we filed three days after they changed from the ¾-view ADIT pics to the passport style. so if you're filing the I-751 now, I assume that you filed back when they required the ¾ view?), he was wearing his glasses, and they didn't reject them or anything. But when we got the green card (and EAD) they had the pics taken at his biometrics appointment (they had him take his glasses off for that) on them.

Go ahead and send regular passport pics, with your glasses on if you want, would be my advice.

Thanks! That's what I thought too when I read that they wanted passport style photos but I just wanted to make sure. ;)
