How to upload an image University of Greenwich

All photographs must be:

  • Recent and of a good likeness
  • A close up of your head and shoulders so that your face covers approximately 65 to 75% of the photograph
  • Taken against a plain off-white, cream or light grey background so that your features are clearly distinguishable against the background
  • Of you on your own (no other people or objects visible)
  • Be in sharp focus and clear i.e. not blurred

The photograph must show:

  • No shadows
  • Your full face, looking straight at the camera
  • A relaxed expression, you may smile if you wish
  • Your eyes open and clearly visible (with no sunglasses or heavily tinted glasses, and no hair across your eyes)
  • No reflection on your spectacles: if you wear them the frames should not cover your eyes
  • Your full head, without any head covering, unless it is worn for religious beliefs or medical reasons
  • Your face uncovered
