Glue has worked for me in the past and I have two pending now hoping it's still "OK."

I did it at Kinkos- they do dual passport photos for about 12 bucks. It'll cost you at least half that w/ your own prints, and if the pics ain't two by two, back it comes! I used rubber cement on the back of mine.

For all of my pictures I've just had my wife or a friend snap a couple torso shots of me against a blank wall. Since I always get double prints made, two pictures work out to four photos, or enough for two Form 4s. I'll crop it myself and and affix it with a glue stick and scotch tape.

I used my digital on a tripod to take a couple in front of a blank white wall. I then took the memory card to Wal-Mart and had a double wallet picture printed for 58 cents. Used a pair of scissors to trim it to size. Two weeks later for another purchase I used the same picture (saved it on the computer) and went through the same process but for some reason that picture only cost me 29 cents !!

I stapled (in left and right margins of photo) to affix.

My AAA insurance has free passport photos.
