    Guidelines to attach photograph/signature/thumb impression in AIIMS 2018 Application Form

    While filing the application form, candidates tend to make errors while choosing the photograph. Sometimes, the photos uploaded by candidates do not adhere to the instructions mentioned as candidates overlook them and as a result these images get disqualified. Some of the common mistakes made by the candidates are:

    1. Try to upload a photograph taken by a professional camera. If clicking photos using a digital device, click it in bright light in a white background only and try using a 5+ megapixels camera while clicking the pictures. Also avoid using flash light which may cause a red eye to the picture. Photos with a colored background are not accepted. If photo is clicked from mobile camera try resizing it to avoid distortion as shown in the image below.
