I don't know if I'm allowed to quote you on something unrelated, but, do you happen to know the answer to my question?

Ok, then I believe they use the pictures you provide. (we did the K visa so I dont have experience with this) Lets wait a few days and see if anyone with experience replies. If not I'll tag some people so they see this. You can also email the Embassy while waiting for responses.

@payxibka Are you online? Have any idea about this? OP seems stressed and in need of prompt answer for whatever reason.

Darn good question.  My thought is the petition photo would be too old, so unless they take a photo at the Poe my best guess is Visa application photo but this is a swag


YMMV

Well, the Visa Application photo is too old, there was one that was a year ago that we took. But now that my Interview is coming, I was just wondering if the picture you bring with you (Before the Interview) is the one they use. Also I'm not in need of an urgent answer, thank you though x) That's why I said silly question.

Cheers

The picture on my green card is the one they took at the airport when we arrived. After 26 hours of travel including 2 overnight flights. I look like Frankenstein on a bad hair day on my GC and can’t wait to give it back lol.

For Canada at least you bring 2 US passport photos with you and that is on your green card.  If you do biometrics at the interview they would use those.
