My situation: I've applied online for a replacement UK passport after losing my passport.

For various reasons (that mainly come down to not reading the guidelines closely enough) I'm convinced that the digital photo I used will be rejected. What happens if that's the case? Will I need to restart the entire procedure? Will it be as simple as changing my photo?

    Not an official source, but this indicates you’d receive an email asking you to submit a replacement photo, with a risk of losing your money if you don’t do so by the date stated in the email tripadvisor.co.uk/… The gov.uk site gov.uk/photos-for-passports only seems to refer to rejected photos delaying an application – Traveller Aug 12 at 13:09
  • That's already quite reassuring, so thanks @Traveller – user112937 Aug 12 at 14:19
  • If you describe why you expect the photo to be refused, it will help others to decide whether their photo is satisfactory before submitting it. – DavidSupportsMonica Aug 12 at 15:09
  • @DavidSupportsMonica I added some vague reasoning but basically it comes down to not reading the instructions closely enough. All I can say to other people is, read the instructions. – user112937 Aug 12 at 15:16
