A scanned photo is not accepted. If you are in Hamilton (based on your moniker), go to Jackson Square Downtown Hamilton. There is a photo store named La Galleria Canada. I took mine there and the photographer sent me the digital copy via email, stamped the hard copy, and gave me his business card.

I hope this helps

Did they accept what? The digital photo? Well, I have not received my AOR or any correspondence from IRCC to either say whether it was accepted or not. But why shouldn't they accept the photo provided it meets their specification?

I uploaded the stamped/date the photo was taken alongside the photographer's information.

Andriod app 'Passport photo id maker studio' by Yarsa Labs. Also please keep in mind that I haven't received my AOR yet to confirm if my photo got approved or not.
Come to think about it @SNGHL_2013, if our photos weren't accepted, I am guessing IRCC would just initiate a request for a new photo that meets their specification. Or would they return the whole online application and ask the applicant to resubmit? Doesn't the latter sound funny?

I made this statement as I know of someone who submitted a paper application for a family of 4. At the time of application, her country of origin passport has expired and she submitted the application that way. IRCC did not return her application. They simply asked for a letter of explanation!
