Thank you for your reply.
So how can I send hard copy from outside Canada?
Once you get the photo request letter, it will have an address to send your photos to.
Please keep in mind it is a PO Box address and not all carriers ( specially outside canada ) do not deliver to PO Boxes.
So, you can ask for a courier address and can send to that using UPS, Fedex etc
If you scroll down in this thread, someone has posted that address already but it is advisable to get it from CIC raising a webform just in case the address has changed. Just mention that you need courier address and the mailing company can not deliver to PO Boxes.

Thank you for your clarification. So in case they sent a photo request by mail, how can I know as I will be outside Canada?

Have you sent photos from outside Canada? In case I got a photo request, can I send it to someone and he send it to the mentioned address?

You can send the photos directly from outside Canada to the Case Processing Center in NS or send them to someone else in Canada and he/she forwards it...it dosnt matter as long as the photos are as per their specifications

With the photos u should include either a copy of the email / letter u receive or just write a letter urself explaining that u have been requested to submit photos and including all relevant info including UCI number.. date of birth..full name..etc

And it may so happen that you do not get Photo request for all people at same time. For some reason, myself and my wife got photo request on email on Dec 20th and we waited for 10 days to get it in mail. It did not reach the address. I wrote to CIC ( webform ) to confirm for my kids as well. There I got to know that all 4 of us need to send new photos. and I printed the letters from email and wrote a letter of explanation and sent the photos. After a month, the photos requests letter for my kids came to canada address, so it is advisable to get all information from CIC to avoid further delays.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
