Tips for taking your own biometric photos
Follow these steps to get the best results
Mind the distance
Pose 4–6 feet (1–2 meters) from the camera. Use a timer to take your photo or have someone snap it for you.
Face the camera directly
Keep your head straight. Avoid tilting your body or looking away. Remember: portrait mode is not suitable for any ID photos.
Ensure good lighting
Take your photos in daylight e.g., next to a bright window. Shadows on your face or in the background are not allowed.

Does Costco do passport photos?
No, they don’t. Costcophotocenter.com has now been outsourced to Shutterfly, a third-party company that does not list passport photos among its products.
How much does a Costco passport photo cost?
Costco no longer offers passport photo services in any of its stores. Any information you find on the internet about the price of a Costco passport photo is either outdated, misleading, or both.
Can I order passport photos online from costcophotocenter.com?
No, you can’t. The website is no longer available. Clicking on the photo tab on Costco’s homepage now redirects users to Shutterfly’s website.
Does Costco print passport photos online?
Yes, you can print passport photos online using Shutterfly (Costco’s new photo services provider)—with a little workaround.
Here’s how to get it done:
- Use epassportphoto.com to prepare a 4x6” passport photo template containing 2 US passport photos.
- Upload the template to shutterfly.com (requires an account—no guest checkout available).
- Print the template as a regular 4x6” photo and have it delivered to your home address.
However, now that Costco has outsourced its photo center services, free delivery requires a minimum order of $49.
Given the new minimum order amount and mandatory account creation, you’re much better off getting passport pictures from epassportphoto.com directly.
Can I get digital passport photos at Costco?
No, you cannot. Costco no longer offers passport photos in either digital or physical formats.
However, by using epassportphoto.com, you can instantly get a digital passport photo that’s guaranteed to comply with all passport photo regulations mandated by the Department of the State—and can be used for online passport renewals.
