It doesn’t let you edit the background, so my example photo below (couldn’t find any with white backgrounds) would definitely fail, but it does let you zoom in or out to get the right head to shoulders proportions and save the file to submit or print out.

    They hardly enforce the smiling. My opinion is smile away. I didn’t on my current passport and regret it
