Default photo spec

yes, you need passport size photograph (2x2 inch) for AP/EAD. when you file I-485, you will file EAD/AP and for that you need photographs. you need atleast 2 photographs for EAD and 2 photographs for AP. check the photograph specifications in EAD/AP form instructions or in USCIS website. USCIS is very specific about the photograph, I know couple of friends whose EAD applications are sent back when they did meet their specifications. so pay attention to their specifications.

check these websites for your reference inaddition to USCIS.gov:

Are you sure you want to do it on your own? If it was that easy, everybody would do it. Considering all the potential pitfalls, it just puzzles me why somebody would go for such a process on their own.
What are you trying to achieve? Save some bucks or show that you are smarter than other people? Even to save a lot of bucks, I don't see how I would do it without a reputed attorney.
Yes they are expensive, but there is a good reason for it: you are buying their expertise. Don't you think that it is worth it?

Anyway, that's just me...Good luck to you.

BTW - I140 has to be filed by a sponsor Company and as far as I485 is concerned, you can do it on ur own, but it has to be based off of LC and I140 approvals which are with your Company..so its very difficult to file 485 on ur own..

Sounds like somegchuh wants to know this to be ready with documentation when his Company is ready to file for 140/485 ( some day)

What's with the attitude? Did I say that I am filing these on my own?

Anyway, I am just trying to do some legwork to find out the required documentation so that I know that my lawyer is doing. If you enough grey matter and have been thru the immigration process you will know that lawyers can screw up and it is in your best interest to cross check with people who have done this.

Some people are really highly sprung and get mad very quickly!
If you had expressed yourself better (from your first post, I believed you wanted to file by yourself), I wouldn't have bothered with my response.
Saying that, you are right: attorneys do screw up. It happened to me...
But practically speaking, considering how complex a file can be, good luck to you on checking an attorney's job.

No, my dear, I did not delete anything! Mr.Pappu maybe?
Alright, now you have to answer again to get the last word!
Hurry up before the censorship deletes everything (they must be tired of us)!
