New Philippine passport: do I need new photos taken?
I will be renewing my Philippine passport soon. I cannot find anywhere on the DFA website mention of the specs for passport photos, nor how many copies I need to provide with the application. Do they not require photos anymore? Is it like NBI clearance, and SSS ID applications, where they take a digital photo of you, instead of you providing your own?

On the website of the Philippines Consulate in New York you can read:
What are the new photo requirements for the ePassport?
Regular Renewal/First Time Passport applicants -■ NO PASSPORT PHOTO REQUIRED ■- your photo will be taken digitally by our processors during the passport application enrollment step.
Replacement of Lost Passport/Irregular cases - One (1) colored passport-size (4.5cm X 3.5cm) photo with plain white background required. You may have your passport photo taken at any studio, as these will only be used for filing purposes.
• straight frontal shot (no tilting of head)
• “medium” smile (no teeth showing)
• collared shirt / decent attire
• both ears visible / both eyebrows visible (no bangs)
• head scarf / veil for religious or health reasons allowed
Image can be rejected for the following reasons:
• distorted image – head is tilted or smile is too wide
• women - excessive makeup, large earrings
• men – wearing makeup, earrings
• colored contact lenses that disguise the natural color of the applicant's eyes
• use of headgear other than scarf/veil for religious or health reasons
• use of eyeglasses / shades
• poor photo quality / poor or uneven lighting
