Rejected: the next day, with a phone call from Railcard.co.uk giving some advice on how to take the best picture possible.


The brief (or, their “terms and conditions”):

All photographs must be:

  • Recent and of a good likeness;
  • Close-up of your head and shoulders so that your face covers approximately 65 to 75% of the photograph;
  • Taken against a plain off-white, cream or light grey background so that your features are clearly distinguishable against the background;
  • Of you on your own (no other people or objects visible);
  • Be in sharp focus and clear, i.e. not blurred;

The photograph must show:

  • No shadows;
  • Your full face, looking straight at the camera:
  • A neutral expression, with your mouth closed;
  • Your eyes open and clearly visible (with no sunglasses or heavily tinted glasses, and no hair across your eyes);
  • No reflection on your spectacles, if you wear them, and the frames should not cover your eyes. We recommend that you remove your glasses to avoid these problems;
  • Your full head, without any head covering, unless it is worn for religious beliefs or medical reasons; and your face uncovered.

Photographs uploaded onto the website must:

  • Have an aspect ratio of 1.29 (with a tolerance of +/ – 0.15) – this means that their height divided by their width must result in a value of between 1.14 to 1.44;
  • Be a file type of either: .jpg, .bmp or .gif;
  • Have a file size not exceeding 1 mb; and have a resolution of at least 300dpi.

Enjoy 🙂

Note: I’ve hidden some images where I show a little bit of nipple. Could be riskaaayy stuff for work! Seriously, it’s just a bit of nipple, get over it!
