Once you’re passport pictures have been taken, you will need to cut them down to a 2″ x 2″ size. Rather than using scissors that can leave crooked edges, consider using a passport photo ID die cutter.

Once the picture has been cut out, you will probably want to place the pictures is a passport holder / folder. Passport folders look professional, protect the pictures and are far more professional than placing the photos in an envelope or bag.
