The Government of China in Beijing has set very strict new rules for visa application photographs. These new regulations must be obeyed to the letter or the application will be rejected.
As courtesy the Chinese produced a poster showing how they view the perfect visa photo.

The size is very important, and all photos must be 33mm x 48mm. You cannot cut down a standard Canadian passport image to this size because your head will be too big. Have the photographer print the image the correct size to begin with.
One significant sticking point for many women is that the new rules dictate that both ears must be visible in the photo. Before you pay for a photo, ensure both of your ears can be seen.
