At the Bürgeramt/Ausländerbehörde
The Fotoautomat prints 4 to 6 pictures on one paper. You do not need to cut them; the Bürgeramt and Ausländerbehörde have a tool for this.1
Get your passport photos in advance, not just before your appointment. If there is a problem with the photo machine, you must have time to find another one.
Biometric pictures for other countries
Other countries use different passport picture sizes. For example, India uses square pictures.
