Wnere to take nice photo for resume and passport?

Postby larkspur » Wed Oct 09, 2013 9:00 am

i used to go to the studio in Hougang mall to take passport size photo for making new passport and also providing photo when going for job interview. Now that the studio is gone, anyone can recommend a studio along NE line to? not necessary have to be ex but just ensure when taking they take nice one.

For passport, I just used smartphone app and make sure I'm against a white background...
Then upload to PC and photoshop a little bit then upload into ICA website.
Anyway at the end, passport photo will be black & white

For passports just be careful not to Photoshop too much or it may be rejected. It's OK to remove temporary pimples or whatever but don't remove permanent birth marks, moles etc.

For my father's passport, i helped him to scan a photo and cropped then sent to ICA 5 yr ago to apply... subsequently saved the file in computer.

few months ago, needed to renew. I sent in the same file, and it was rejected! The reason given was need a more recent photo... So now i know they actually look at the date saved for softcopy...

I can understand why, but it's not like a 74 yo person looks v different from a 79 yo...
