Print passport photos.

Overview

PassportPicture... We all need identity pictures for our passport, ID card, fitness club member card, student card, etc., sometimes several time a year. PassportPicture is designed to print your own identity picture at the exact size needed and the face of the person on the picture calibrated for specific use. It takes less than 2 minutes to import, calibrate and print multiple copies of identity picture of someone. Import a picture, calibrate it to the right size for your new passport or membership card, then print multiple copy of one or more id pictures on your printer.

Never go to the photograph or automatic picture machine again!

Great concept, but Canadian users beware: this app comes a few years too late for us. Our passport photos must be taken and certified by a professional photography studio, or they aren't valid. Gone are the days when you could provide your own photo or get one done at a photo booth; now everything has to be done through recognised studios. This is as a result of stringent requirements from US Homeland Security - they've been rejecting photos that don't meet there exacting specifications. I don't know how this might affect users in the USA or elsewhere - perhaps they allow you to get a photo notorised South of the border. This app is still worth a try, though, if you're going to be making photo IDs for an event or business.

This would be a perfect app for senior portrait photographers since the requirements for sizing, etc. are similar to making a passport. There are so many senior photographers (one of the biggest public photo markets) that adding comments and options to that market would greatly increase the market appeal of this app.

For U.S. Passports, there is a nice guide to how your picture should look at: http://travel.state.gov/passport/guide/composition/composition_874.html They suggest that the centerline for the eyes should be 1-1/8" to 1-3/8". They suggest that the face should be about 1" to 1-3/8" in size. And that the total picture should be 2" square. After playing with PassportPicture for about an hour, it looks like it will do a good job with the last requirement. And it will help with the second. But it provides nothing for the first. It would be nice if the developer could add a couple of guidelines to aid in meeting the first requirement. And it would be nice if you could have at least two of both the existing square and the new guidelines. That way, one could express a range. I.e. the face should fill the inner square, but not exceed the outer. This program isn't bad. But with just a few minor enhancements, it could be great!

Update: It looks like the guide has been updated. Now you may want to check out the following links for U.S. Passport picture guidelines. http://travel.state.gov/passport/pptphotoreq/photocomptemplate/photocomptemplate_5297.html http://travel.state.gov/passport/pptphotoreq/photographerguide/photographerguide_5303.html http://travel.state.gov/passport/pptphotoreq/pptphotoreq_5333.html

The U.S. State Department, also has very basic flash based photo utility at http://travel.state.gov/_res/flash/cropper/FIG_cropper.html# However, you may still find this product to be worth the small extra charge over the government's free one.

I was actually going to mention the exact same thing, as my folks had to do this recently when going on vacation (and, of course, I volunteered to help them fill out their applications online). FYI: Costco has very reasonable prices for passport photos if you're a member.

I always do mine in Photoshop and print them on my cheapo Epson printer. If you follow the rules posted on the government's web site there is no trouble. I've done about 6 peoples pasport photos like this and never had any trouble.

Much better in this new version...! It would have been nice though to have more presets (German passport, driver licence, UK documents etc.) instead of having to create those yourself, but anyway... Localization (German/French at least) would be a nice touch as well and why doesn't it support standard keybord commands such as cmd-W for closing the active window -- instead of always being forced to click on a 'close' button...?! This should be basic stuff actually...!!

The improvements are very nice. I need a U.K passport template however. That would make it even better.

Not sure why the other comments are so negative. I can't be bothered to build a photoshop template and this is an OK price! Admittedly, it could have the following features IMHO: 1. Save to JPG/PNG 2. Adjust brightness, saturation, etc. With number 1, you could always print to PDF... 4 stars from me. Keep adding more features!

This is an answer to a question that nobody asked. The USPS takes your photos for your passport when you apply for a $15.00 fee, You can go to Walgreens, CVS, RiteAid, Savon etc and they all do it for between free and $7.99

I don't know what was I thinking to buy this software. If you don't have a descent photo printer at home, this software is USELESS! You cannot output to anything but printer. DO not buy this. Use photo shop.

Only output option is to send to printer. Why can't I save the edited/cropped photo to a file? That way, I could take it on memory stick and print it anywhere - photo kiosks at Kinkos, Walgreens, Target, etc.

Come on, It take 3 minutes or less to make a template from Photoshop for printing passport photo. I don't see any reason this software can cost $15.00 How many times would you use it in 5 years for yourself? Once? For $15.00? Cost less to go to the professional photographer to do it. Anyone needs one? I'll make the templates for him/her...free!!! No bull.

Hi! I would love to take you up on your offer of a Photoshop template. My family needs a lot of passport pictures: 17 passports x 2 pictures for each passport and some of the passports have to be replaced every 2 years. It is not the cost, but also the fact that we have several young kids and getting everyone's pictures done professionally is quite a project. Would you be willing to give me the template? By the way, I don't know if there is a better way to contact you, but I didn't see one. Thanks!
