    "You can actually resize and customize your photo using this application. Adjust the gamma, saturation, and the like. However, it takes slow to load on my phone. IDK if that's my phone or what :( But i like that it follows standard rules for passport and visa."

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that the Japanese passport is considered to be the world’s most powerful passport in 2018? It knocked German off the first spot in the previous year? According to the ranking released by Henley & Partners, they have taken into account the number of countries that can be visited without the need of visa and results shows that Japanese citizens can visit 189 out of possible 218 countries. Singapore and Germany both landed in the second place. For those who haven’t gotten their passports yet, it may be overwhelming at first. This is because some strict rules are observed—especially on the picture-taking part. 

The first and the most important step in getting one is to prepare all the necessary documents that are needed to verify your identities such as a certificate of citizenship and other valid ID’s. The second thing you have to consider is what to wear on the day of your appointment. Glasses and other head accessories are a no-no, as your photo will be rejected, and your application might be put on hold. It is required that your full face is shown More than aesthetic purposes, you may want to opt for a business attire or at least a collared shirt to look credible when applying for a business visa. The last and often neglected part of getting a passport is the picture-taking. Remember that the photo would last years and imagine if the camera captured you in your not-so-beautiful state, augmented by the fact that you are it would be your mug shot, so don’t forget to give your best smile. To keep you ready, there are lots of I.D. photo apps available for both Android and iOS devices. Applications like iPhone passport photo app or Passport Photo Generator could be a great help for urgent photo needs.

    "I was sort of iffy on whether I should use this app or go to my local drug store and get my picture done, but I'm glad I did this. To my surprise, it could also take a formal school id and if you are sending out CVs you can also use this to take your photos. It was fast and cheaper and I didn't have to leave my house."
