I was just helping someone with a permanent residency form they had to fill in, and in that case you CAN'T submit an inkjet photo, or a photo you (or a friend) have taken of yourself:
• be produced from the same unretouched film or from the same file capturing the digital image or from two identical photos exposed simultaneously by a split-image or multi-lens camera;
• be original photos (not taken from any existing photo);
• be on photographic paper that has a backing which accepts and retains the date and the guarantor’s signature without smearing. Photos without this backing are not acceptable;
• be on prints that are well-fixed and washed to prevent fading and discolouration;
So you should check the instructions that come with the form first before you send in a photo that's unsuitable.
