It is so frustrating! I finally got two different pics to download but they didn't meet "photo quality". Ugh there's an option to send app without the pic and email it later. Did anyone do that?

I did this for three years in a row with my J1 visa applications and it was always fine. Not exactly the same but still!

Do you know whether the embassy/consulate where you will have your interview even requires it? I spent hours playing around with my fiancee's photo using the tool on the website to size it properly. I wanted to make sure that once we filled out the DS160, we could upload the photo. To our surprise, the form never prompted us to upload the photo, and the DS-160 Confirmation Page stated the photo would be taken at the ASC.

I'm going threw the same thing right now. Not sure if this is true for every consulate but this is what Vancouver, Canada wants. If you know how to use photo editing software it's not hard to do. They want a square photo so you will have to turn off the aspect ratio when cropping the photo. You can scan a passport photo and make it work but need to be proficient in scanning images.

Dimensions The image dimensions must be in a square aspect ratio (the height must be equal to the width). Minimum acceptable dimensions are 600 x 600 pixels. Maximum acceptable dimensions are 1200 x 1200 pixels. Please review photo requirements for specific dimensions. Color The image must be in color (24 bits per pixel) in sRGB color space which is the common output for most digital cameras. File Format The image must be in JPEG file format File Size The image must be less than or equal to 240 kB (kilobytes). Compression The image may need to be compressed in order for it to be under the maximum file size. The compression ratio should be less than or equal to 20:1.
Want to scan an existing photo?

In addition to the digital image requirements, your existing photo must be:

  • 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm)
  • Scanned at a resolution of 300 pixels per inch (12 pixels per millimeter)
