    Hi Leanne06t, and welcome to TSG.

    If you are using a scanner to capture the image of the license or passport, you should be able to experiment with the image resolution (dots per inch) and the percentage of JPEG compression to get different file sizes. The higher the resolution setting and the less compression (higher quality setting) applied, the larger the file. Is the 7 MB size a maximum limit?

    You should be careful that you are sending the images to a reputable organization and not someone attempting any kind of identity theft.

    It would depend on the cell phone. Your phone would need to give you a sharply focused image of the document that pretty much fills the frame by either zooming in or being held close to it. You would experiment with the camera resolution settings until you had a file size close to but under the limit.

    Best to ask the "company" that requests this if it has to be sent from a computer or would a cellphone image work.
