Guidelines for scanning and Upload of Photograph & Signature ( As per Annexure 2 of IBPS Document)

Before applying online a candidate will be required to have a scanned (digital) image of his/her photograph and signature as per the specifications given below.

Photograph Image:
- Photograph must be a recent passport style colour picture.
- Make sure that the picture is in colour, taken against a light-coloured, preferably white, background.
- Look straight at the camera with a relaxed face
- If the picture is taken on a sunny day, have the sun behind you, or place yourself in the shade, so that you are not squinting and there are no harsh shadows
- If you have to use flash, ensure there’s no “red-eye”
- If you wear glasses make sure that there are no reflections and your eyes can be clearly seen.
- Caps, hats and dark glasses are not acceptable. Religious headwear is allowed but it must not cover your face.
- Dimensions 200 x 230 pixels (preferred)
- Size of file should be between 20kb–50 kb
- Ensure that the size of the scanned image is not more than 50kb. If the size of the file is more than 50 kb, then adjust the settings of the scanner such as the DPI resolution, no. of colours etc., during the process of scanning.

Signature Image:
- The applicant has to sign on white paper with Black Ink pen.
- The signature must be signed only by the applicant and not by any other person.
- The signature will be used to put on the Hall Ticket and wherever necessary.
- If the Applicant’s signature on the answer script, at the time of the examination, does not match the signature on the Hall Ticket, the applicant will be disqualified.
- Dimensions 140 x 60 pixels (preferred)
- Size of file should be between 10kb – 20kb
- Ensure that the size of the scanned image is not more than 20kb

Scanning the photograph & signature:
- Set the scanner resolution to a minimum of 200 dpi (dots per inch)
- Set Color to True Color
- File Size as specified above
- Crop the image in the scanner to the edge of the photograph/signature, then use the upload editor to crop the image to the final size (as specified above).
- The image file should be JPG or JPEG format. An example file name is : image01.jpg or image01.jpeg Image dimensions can be checked by listing the folder files or moving the mouse over the file image icon.
- Candidates using MS Windows/MSOffice can easily obtain photo and signature in .jpeg format not exceeding 50kb & 20kb respectively by using MS Paint or MSOffice Picture Manager. Scanned photograph and signature in any format can be saved in .jpg format by using ‘Save As’ option in the File menu and size can be reduced below 50 kb (photograph) & 20 kb(signature) by using crop and then resize option (Please see point (i) & (ii) above for the pixel size) in the ‘Image’ menu. Similar options are available in other photo editor also.
- If the file size and format are not as prescribed, an error message will be displayed.
- While filling in the Online Application Form the candidate will be provided with a link to upload his photograph and signature.

(2) After registering online candidates are advised to take a printout of their system generated online application forms.
(3) In case the photograph or signature is unclear, the candidate may edit his/ her application and re-upload his/ her photograph or signature.

  • tanya says:

    is it ok if i upload a pic of my signature clicked from a digital camera? can i upload passport size photo directly taken from digital camera and not scanned?

  • rani says:

    it is impossible to resize a signature image with blank ink on a white back ground to the
    required specs. Bank asked for 140 x 60 pixles but the size should be above 10kb.
    I did the scanning with 600 dpi with colour mode scanning. the document size was 1.3mb. I have resized it to 140 x 60 , but maximum size is 8kb. 140X 60 pixles does not have much colour information , hence always the size will be smaller.if you change it to 180 x 80 pixles the size can be increased to 10 kb.

    scan it with maximum resolution, use microsoft paint and select the signature portion, paste it in a new paint file.save the image as a jpeg file. go to the web site http://www.resizeimage.4u2ges.com
    then resize your signature

    and down load after resizing it. It is a on line resize tool
