Photo rules can vary by jurisdiction, facility, and individual circumstance (e.g. some SHUs don't allow photos at all, but on the mainline, they're fine), so it’s always best to check with your bud ahead of time and get local information. There may be quantity restrictions too. Most commissary photo albums are sized for 4x6 prints, so, something else to keep in mind. I’ve used Shutterfly and Pelipost to get photos in the door, but I've heard other services work well too.

I called one prison yesterday because my letter was returned. They did copy and give the leter to the inmate. but...and this is important...you can NOT send printed pics of any kind...rven on photp paper. Any pics MUST be from a place like Walmart photo shoop and can not be larger than 5x7 I believe.

I am also pretty new to the site and had a similar worry of if they would receive my email, I am happy to say I did receive a written letter from the person I wrote to at my home address who had received it! My next query is I was asked for more pictures so I'm assuming they also print your profile pic, does anyone know how this side of things work?
Thanks

I am too people, people  are saying it gets printed, but others are not ,so I don't know ,"I'm thinking it gets printed " but also I'm not sure so I'm probably gonna send a letter. But that's what I was here to ask to.
