Every actor knows the importance of a great headshot and resume. They are required tools to get you noticed for all the right reasons, but you would be surprised at how many actors don't put their best face forward with a quality headshot and well designed resume.
MyHeadshots is a revolutionary new tool to help actors get together their photos and resumes in one location so they can always be within reach when you need them most.
Take a look at some of these invaluable features:
-Add photos from your photo gallery, import them from your DropBox account, or even snap one straight from your device's camera for a quick "today" look.
-Full-featured photo editor with cropping, enhance tools, blemish remover, among others to make sure your photos look their best.
-Control the placement of your name on the headshot, including the font and size, color, and alignment. Choose to have a borderless, a translucent banner, or a more traditional bordered look.
-Create a full resume with an editor tailored for acting and a choice of format styles that will make your years of work shine like it should.
-Choose the font and size and which information to include on your resume, contact info for you and/or your agent, personal info like height and weight (if desired), it is all up to you.
-Import your old resumes, in PDF format, from your DropBox account if you want to keep them handy in case you need them.
-All of the headshots and resumes can be printed on any AirPrint capable printer right from your device, or you can send them as PDF or JPEG files via email or text message. You can also easily order prints of the photos by sending them to a print shop like FedEx, CVS or Walgreens (using their print ordering apps.)
We hope this tool helps budding and seasoned actors alike and will gladly accept any suggestions for enhancements that will make this tool useful for you in your quest to make it in such a competitive and exciting field.

Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded this app a few months ago and used it once just fine and not to its full potential, simply to get one last minute headshot. As is industry standard, my daughter was scheduled for a last minute audition. I quickly uploaded a couple recent headshots and this time I actually utilized the Resume portion - I am so amazed. It is so easy! The only thing I don’t care for is that filling out the special skills portion on the Resume is all on one line and is difficult to edit when I want to add something toward the beginning of the line. Anyway, audition is approaching and I’m ready to save these and get them printed to 1 hr photo and the app keeps crashing when I try to save it! Ah! I contact support and receive a response in less than 30 minutes 🙂 that is the best tech support/ customer service around! I would recommend this app to everyone I know in the industry.
Works perfect!! More time acting, less time editing
Just want I have been looking for!! It’s about time someone made this in the smartphone age. More time acting, less time editing. Easy upload and your done. Everything right from your phone. Use with PrintToSize to make it ready to print.
MyHeadshots Exceeded Expectations
I recently needed a headshot for my child's first dance audition but didn't have enough time to have it professionally produced, so I turned to the iTunes App Store and quickly discovered this excellent app. I was amazed, first of all, that this tool even existed and was even more surprised by its quality and ease of use. Initially, I had a minor problem editing out information I didn't want to appear on the resume, which by the way conveniently can be added to the back of the headshot during printing, so I sent a message to the customer service email address provided for the app, explaining the issue I was having. Within a couple of hours I received a reply from the app's creator, who helped me troubleshoot the problem over several email exchanges. Even better, he made sure that the subsequent update (released just a short-time later) made the needed corrections. I could not have asked for a more responsive creative/customer-service team nor a better tool for creating high-quality headshots for the aspiring actor, dancer, musician or other entertainment professional. I just wish this had existed when going out on auditions myself. So, for the reasons outlined, I enthusiastically give the MyHeadshots app five stars. Kudos also to the app's creator for recognizing the need for such a product and being so personally invested in its success!
