Have they retouched your passport photos, too?
A few months ago a Canadian teacher here came up to me in the supermarket and asked me if I knew anything about this, and I said I didn't. He said that his friend got some passport photos taken in town and the guy at the studio touched them up. I didn't think about that again until I myself had some taken yesterday. Sure enough I watched as the guy used the paintbrush tool to eliminate most of the space between the outer edge of my glasses and the side of my head. I actually just needed passport-sized photographs for an application, so I didn't press the issue, but because I simply asked for passport photos I wonder if this is a common practice.
