Ratings and Reviews
Don’t go to Walgreens or anywhere else!
I spent $15 at Walgreens to have my passport photo taken for me. The employee seemed really tired and fed up, so I was scared to ask to have my picture retaken. I looked awful and was really upset how it came out.
Passport photos are stuck with you for 10 years. Feeling really unhappy with the one that was taken for me at Walgreens (not to mention the ridiculous price), I downloaded this app and thought “there’s no harm in trying this out.” Due to poor lighting in my house, I took my own photo at school while standing in front of a plain white wall under the fluorescent lights in the hallway. Yes you read that right. I took the photo myself. It took a couple of tries to position my shoulders and extend my arm in a way to where it didn’t look obvious that I was taking a “selfie.” What’s great about this app is that the outline (where you keep your face in place) is completely accurate and the app saves two identical 2x2’s in a single frame just like the ones at Walgreens. I uploaded the photo onto the Walgreens app which costed less than a dollar to have them print it. I stapled that baby onto the passport application and prayed that they wouldn’t find a reason not to accept it. Luckily, they did!! This app works and I’m so glad it exists.

Thank you Joce_xo for the review! I feel you...I started making the app because of a bad experience I had getting my photos at a pharmacy by someone who was slow and didn't care. Having someone care makes a big difference! I'm glad you were able to figure out better lighting as many people struggle with lighting at home. I've also had success at schools and offices using white walls as well as whiteboards. Thanks again for the feedback!
Don’t go to Walmart for printing!
This app is great! Very easy to use since if you don’t have someone to take it, it has a 3-second timer. Enough time for you to adjust your position after pressing the click button. Very well-thought app. I initially ordered my prints at CVS and paid a dollar and something for 5 4x6 prints (10 2x2 pictures). When I took my husband’s picture, I ordered the prints from a kiosk at Walmart while grocery shopping. Upon finalizing my order at the kiosk, it was telling me that 4 copies would be $1. But Lo and behold, the clerk manning the photo section told me to pay $29++ when I picked it up! She said that since it is a great passport photo, Walmart is charging it per picture and not per print. Crazy argument! Asked them to explain why since they did not take the picture but only printed MY PICTURE but they were not using their common sense at all. Walmart ended up shredding my pictures since I refuse to pay almost $30! DON’T GO TO WALMART!

Hi Razeltg, thanks for the review and I'm glad CVS didn't give you a problem. One possible answer to these employees is "it is not a passport photo", as there are many other uses for a 2x2 photo.
Fast and easy passport photo
Update: I’ve used the app for several different things in the past so I wanted to update to my review. I originally used it for my passport photo which came out fantastic. It took a bit of effort getting the lighting right since I don’t have a good setup at home. Instead I took a pic in front of a white board at the office.
I’ve always hated going to the pharmacy to take photos bc if I want to retake the photo I get the look of death. And then if I want a second set of prints they somehow think it’s ok to charge another almost $14-15!
Anyway, I later used the app again for a visa for myself and a few friends I was traveling with. I also tried some other apps and those will charge you a fee just to have color photos emailed. This app does it for free.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
