Well technically the wording is not to alter your appearance. But I think the spirit of this is that you are permitted to crop photos and such, which is technically an alteration, but not change any content on it. They list removing red eye as an example - you can do so in the camera settings but not via a tool once captured/transferred.

Please, I wanna know if it's okay to change the background ( only the background ) into white by using photoshop ? 

I think no worries about that BUT

since it is a kid, play it safe and keep the usual white background or the off white color

They specifically tell you not to digitally alter the image so, no. Find a light colored wall to stand in front of. 

Well what i konw it is not allowed to Alter the image that affect the appearance  [such age hair, skin color ... ETC]

 

all the people when they apply for the visa they take their photos at the photo shop with green background, then changing the green into any colour [white or off white]

Huh? All the people where? Every photograph I’ve had professionally at a photo shop taken for any US visa, and there have been a few over the years,  has been against a white backdrop.

 

i really don’t understand why people spend all this time stressing over stuff rather than just following instructions.  I guess if you want to take a chance that’s fine, but we have seen people denied for photo reasons. It’s rare, but it happens, I guess if people want to take that risk rather than just doing what they should it’s their choice. Honestly, I’m not bothering with this conversation any longer, chances are so low of being selected anyway you’d think someone would want to not make them worse, if they get selected they’ll start stressing all over again for months on end, i don’t see the point in this approach at all.
