To save a few bucks, my first passport picture was taken by my secretary and printed in my office on a dot matrix printer. There were certain requirements that it had to meet. They were explained in the instructions for the passport application.
Based on the appearance, LHO’s known frugality, and lack of excess money, I would suggest that he most likely used an old photo for the visa application.

 Could be. Somewhere I thought I read that "Oswald" was told to go get pictures taken for the visa.
I tried to put photos in alleged order 1. 1963 passport- Jun24 ...2. New Orleans arrest Aug 9...3. Visa photo Sept 30?...4. Dallas Nov 22




 


 I have noticed that Wikipedia changed out the main Oswald page photo from the Alek Hidell photo to a prisoner photo....




I wonder why they did that?

Duran directed him to do that in Mexico City for an application for a visa to visit Cuba.

[Scratching head] I wonder why Ms Duran would dispatch someone to get photos for a visa she should have known they couldn't get? According to the story-------
Quote
Duran was suspicious of Lee Harvey Oswald. She could not understand why Oswald had not applied in advance by contacting the Communist Party in Cuba. Duran told him that he would need a passport photograph to apply for a visa for Cuba. He returned an hour later with the photograph.

Duran then told Oswald she could not issue a transit visa without confirmation that he had clearance for travel to the Soviet Union. Oswald was told it would be at least seven days before his transit visa could be issued. Oswald replied that he could only stay for three days.

Duran then told him he would need to visit the Soviet embassy to get the necessary paperwork. This he did but Vice Consul Oleg Nechiperenko informed him that the visa application would be sent to the Soviet embassy in Washington and would take about four months. Oswald then returned to the Cuban consulate at 4.00 and told Duran that he had been to the Soviet Embassy and that they were willing to give him a visa straight away. Duran phoned the embassy and was told that Oswald was lying and that the visa would not be issued for some time. After a brief argument Oswald left the consulate. Six times Oswald needed to pass the newly installed CIA camera as part of the LIERODE operation.
