Taking an ID Picture: Four Easy Steps
There are just four easy steps you need to follow to capture a perfect ID picture that satisfies all requirements.
- Select size and style of the picture.
- Take a photo with your camera phone, or open an existing picture from the library.
- Crop the image around the face. Guide lines will be displayed to help you achieve a perfect crop.
- Save the picture and send it out.
Accommodating Legal Photo Requirements
Government-issued ID’s, passports, and visa applications have very strict requirements regarding the pictures. A valid picture meeting all the requirements is a vital part of your application.
Normally, the photo requirements will specify picture size and proportions and require a specific composition, specifying margins between the bottom of the chin and the top of the head.
Meeting these requirements is possible in post-processing. PhotoID will display guide lines with eye and chin levels, helping you achieve a perfectly tight crop.
PhotoID works on certain models of camera-equipped Nokia smartphones.
PanoramaMaker is an excellent option for photographers wishing to capture large scenes of all types.
