    The cheapest place you can find! Most places have instant passport photos....Walgreens here is $7.99. DOn't know about other places. The nice thing is that many places don't require and appointment and only take 5 minutes.

    If you have AAA they do it for free. Otherwise Kinkos is a great place.

    We just did ours at Costco for $4.99. They were actually good quality photos. I was expecting drivers license photos. The lady at the Post Office mentioned if you have them done at Walgreens or CVS to make sure that they are the exact size they are suppose to be. She said she sends people back to those two places on a regular basis because the photos are too big. It shows an outline on the application.

    I did ours at home and printed them.

    They dont attach them to the passports anymore, they scan them in. If you do it yourself you can get the photo you like instead of whatever the photo looks like when they take it for you.

    We got it done the same place we were getting our passports... Not sure about the cost, though, but it was very easy as we didn't have to travel to different places to get the pictures taken, to get the birth certificuts, and then get the passports (BTW, if you have an abstract birth certificut, like my brother did that he used for baseball, trade it in for the regular one. Both the passport people and sports leagues don't accept them anymore. Well, at least in California and Texas).

    We did ours at home as well. For a family of 5 it is a significant cost savings and so easy to do yourself.

    I didn't realize you could do them yourself at home! I will get the guidelines from the website and just do my at home!

    Much easier!

    We've done ours at home for the last couple of passports (renewal, change of name and a new one). They have all worked out well.

    We needed to get 5 as well, and it was a great savings.

    Just get the guideline for the head size and make a few different sizes of your photo. I transferred mine into Microsoft Word and after printing a rough draft I held the template behind the photo and got the exact size we needed.

    Techinically, Little League has never accepted abstract birth certificates...however some local league weren't being very good about checking. Little League starting cracking down 5 years ago. Especially after the Danny Armana (sp) mess in the Little League World Series several years ago.

    Was just in the AAA website AAA California. Scroll down a bit. They say passport photos are $8 for members and $15 for non-members. Maybe it's different in every state or office?
