Documents in a language other than English must be accompanied by an official translation.

Hi Rosalie,

There isn't a specific number of photos required to meet requirements. My advice would be to choose a few, copy/paste them into a Word document and write down a short description of who appears on the photo, maybe location or type of event, date when the photo was taken and any other relevant detail you want to share with the Department Then you can save it as a PDF and attach it to your application.

You think it'd be a problem to do the same thing but as a collage in photoshop and saved as a jpg? I think I asked in another thread too but no one's responded to that one yet haha. I think people are saying the other evidence is more important then the photos.

From memory jpg is an acceptable format for DIBP, in practice I have found PDF always opens better than some jpg images.

Quality of photos over quantity is best, a small number over time with family/friends included is good - 1 photo at a family event, is better than 10 selfies of the two of you on the same day in the same clothes.

Hi there! Yeah I know Jpg's are accepted but I wasn't sure if they would except edited Jpgs. I wouldn't think it'd be any different from putting the photos in a word document or PDF but who knows, lol. I just figured JPG would yield a smaller file, but I haven't tried making the images smaller in Acrobat yet. Not sure how to atm, haha.

It sucks for us because we've been together since 2004 but don't have many photos with us and family and friends, because 1) We have no friends, lol, and 2) We live in Canada and I've cut ties with my family >_< . We do have some with his relatives in Australia though!

Hi, The best thing to do is present the photos in chronological order, showing the history of the relationship, important events and including captions in the photos - photos with family and friends are important. A sample only.

I agree with you. Presenting photos in a chronological order with a brief caption will certainly help the Case Officer to understand the evidence provided.

You can be creative and present the photographs in any way you like . You can definitely attach jpg files or convert the document into a PDF.

Adding a caption and, as suggested by Peter, presenting them in a chronological order would allow you to share your story
