Passport Photo app

Need recommendation for a cellphone photo resizing app that will meet the requirements for submitting the required attached photo and application.

Re: Passport Photo app

Sounds like the normal built in photo app will work just fine

Just select square and make sure you take it following these guidelines, when you have it printed make sure it’s 2x2”

Passport Photos

You must provide one photo with your passport application.

All our photo policies apply to both adults and children under age 16. We have a few exceptions to our photo policies for infants.

Photo Basics
Submit a color photo, taken in last 6 months
Use a clear image of your face. Do not use filters commonly used on social media.
Have someone else take your photo. No selfies.
Take off your eyeglasses for your photo.
Use a plain white or off-white background.

Submit a high resolution photo that is not blurry, grainy, or pixelated.
The correct size of a passport photo is:
2 x 2 inches
(51 x 51 mm)
Head must be between 1 -1 3/8 inches (25 - 35 mm) from the bottom of the chin to the top of the head
Printed on matte or glossy photo quality paper
Do not digitally change the photo
You cannot submit a damaged photo with holes, creases, or smudges.

Pose and Expression
Have a neutral facial expression or a natural smile, with both eyes open.
Face the camera directly with full face in view.
Note to parents of young children: we have sample photos in the Photo Examples section below with tips for submitting a baby's passport photo. We realize that an infant's pose and expression are challenging to maintain for a photo.

Re: Passport Photo app

Follow the specs given by the gov entity (USA posted above) EXACTLY, most are very picky...this is where an app/template comes in handy.

I used a template in Photoshop to make some for my wife recently. Took w DSLR for good quality then formatted in Photoshop.

There are also apps out there as you requested, just look in Google Play/iStore depending on which flavor of phone you have. Ive used an Android app in the past, but dont recall which one at the moment (will see if I can find it).

Update:

Below is a link to an Android app Ive used before. This one comes with temaplates for various countries which is handy if you travel a lot. Ive used it for visa fotos in Nepal and a few other countries.
