I got new passport photos the other day. I had them taken in a camera shop, rather than the usual chemist. The difference was interesting. She took my photo on a digital camera, showed me the photo to see if I liked it (I'd never been asked for my approval before), then put the disk (or whatever you call them) into a computer and zeroed in on the face to get the image to exactly the right size and frame. It was a much faster process than in the chemist.
