French ID photos, often used for ID cards, passports, driver's licenses, and other official documents, are of crucial importance in everyone's life. These small snapshots, although seemingly modest, play an essential role in verifying individuals' identities across the country. They must meet strict standards to be accepted by authorities, which means that the photo shoot and photo quality are crucial.

Unlike souvenir or artistic photographs, ID photos must adhere to precise rules established by government agencies, including the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for passport photos. These rules cover aspects such as size, posture, facial expression, background, brightness, and photo sharpness. They ensure that each ID photo is uniform and meets the required security criteria.

Standards for ID Photos
Aspect Requirements
Quality The photo must be sharp and high quality.
Dimensions 3.5 cm x 4.5 cm, with the face measuring 3.2 to 3.6 cm (70 to 80% of the photo).
Background The background must be plain and light (no white background).
Head The head must be uncovered, upright, and the face directed towards the camera.
Expression Neutral expression, closed mouth, focus on the camera.
Face The face must be visible, without obstruction. Eyes must be open.
Hair Hair must not cover the face, ears must be visible.

What Is the Cost of an ID Card Photo?

The cost of an ID card photo can vary depending on where you choose to have it taken. In a photo booth, a sheet of 5 official photos typically costs around €8, but this may seem expensive considering the trial limits and the need to physically go there. Additionally, it's often challenging to take ID photos for babies in a photo booth. On the other hand, at a professional photographer's studio, a set of 4 photos can cost between €12 and €20, which is significantly higher. Some photographers may even refuse to take studio ID photos for babies. However, this usually involves visiting the studio in person, which can be time-consuming.
