Hey, don't worry about attaching the photos to send this in (or just attach standard UK ones if you want to). You can go to Gould's pharmacy (across from the Embassy) on the day or the day before or when you go for your medical and get them there. They do lots of different countries visa photos and the US is one of them.

I attached UK size photos and they just binned them, didn't seem interested in those and attached the US sized ones when I handed them over.

Hope that helps x
