Some Chinese applications are now online

For the online applications, China requires images that are between 354x472px and 420x560px (pixels) in a file size between 40KB and 120KB.

The digital photos are bound by the same requirements that apply to the printed passport & visa photos, with the Chinese specific criteria for image quality, image size and pixel size, as noted above. The image is required in JPG format.

Wonderful experience. I first went into the store very tentatively, not sure if I ‘needed’ a custom made frame, however, having Victor’s consultative input on the different frame designs and customisable feature was so valuable. In the end Victor helped create a beautiful frame for my father in law’s memorial service sheets. As you can imagine, this was a sensitive thing to put in someone else’s hands but the team treated everything with such care and the finished product looks amazing.Thanks guys, would 100% more

#aboveandbeyond Victor and the Photoland team produced the most fantastic framed photo gift for me to surprise my partner with. They combined the half marathon medal and number with a photo from the finish line - the end product far surpassed my expectations . Real customer service, great communication - no wonder they are the only photo framing place in the CBD. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again more
