Printing passport pictures from iPhoto or Picasa

5/03/2008

I am in the process of obtaining a visa, for which the application requires a 3×4 cm picture. I have a couple of good ‘passport type’ pictures; however, it is not possible to print passport size (or small size, for that matter) pictures from either iPhoto or Picasa.

There are a few products for either mac or windows that let you print these small sizes. Nevertheless, why would one pay for adding barebones functionality to software? http://www.epassportphoto.com allows choosing country and type of document (to get the exact size required), and then uploading a picture. The picture is then resized in such a way as to get the right photo size when printing in common photo paper.

This is the only function of this free site and it works really well.
