Creating a photo perfect for IDs or other similar documents can be a bit of a chore if you don’t define the cropping area accordingly. ID Photo Maker is a small tool that can help you create standard pictures for passports, Visas and other documents.

The program has a compact interface that is easy to work with. Figuring out how to perform a task doesn’t take long, no matter how much experience with similar apps you have.

This software can import photographs from various media, such as a digital camera or directories from the computer. Alternatively, snapping a picture with the webcam is possible.

After selecting one of the directories, one or more images can be picked by ticking the checkboxes next to each thumbnail. The chosen pictures appear in the upper side of the interface and can be processed individually.

In order to do this, you must choose a cropping style, particular to the country you live in. The program comes with a few preset styles for various territories around the globe, such as Austria, Australia, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Greece, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, China, USA and even the Schengen Zone.

The program comes with a wizard that guides you through the entire cropping process. For instance, it requires that you set up a few pointers to better calibrate the image. Thus, you must select the center of the pupils, the bottom of the chin and the top of the head.

Some final adjustments can be made before the task is finalized. You can alter the brightness and gamma levels, fiddle with the color balance and the contrast, and apply a grayscale filter. The software has several paper templates, so multiple copies of the picture can be printed on the same sheet.

The bottom line is that ID Photo Maker is a nice program that is very easy to use.
