Not sure where you got your information from Warwick? You can apply online or post.Kilkis wrote:For information there is a slight change to the application process since I last renewed mine in 2017. You now need to upload a digital version of your photograph rather than send a physical photograph. You can take it yourself with a digital camera providing you make sure you follow all the rules. If you do go to a photo shop it might be worth taking a memory stick with you and asking them to give you a digital copy. You can use a scanner to create a digital photo from the passport sized physical one but you will need a reasonable resolution scanner, e.g. 600 dpi, to meet the minimum file size. I have just done this for a friend, who didn't realise he needed a digital version, and scanning at 300 dpi gave too small an image. I'm not sure when this new system was introduced.

The information comes from the official government web site linked in my post. See also this page. If you answer the million questions you get to this page. Note that it does not give you a paper application option. I have just helped somebody to go through the process.
