Been a pleasure getting the warm enthusiastic appluase from the Consumerist blog. From the day we started the ePassportPhoto way back in 2005, we felt there's some serious gap between what the photoshops and the Walgreens' are charging us and the actual value they provide. Passport photos to all – for free.
Of special notice, I wanted to say thanks to WILMAWONKER who posted this great photo. Great to see that even the ePassportPhoto.com has serious competition out there!
At epassportphoto you upload your photo, crop it according to your
country's standard guidelines, and save the resulting 4×6" image—that's
six 2×2" ID shots—to your computer to print wherever you like, whether
it's at home, from an online service, or at that same CVS with the
myopic camera operator.
Not only will you be able to control the photo lighting and quality
(and retake the photo until you're happy with it), but you'll have four
more 2×2" shots than you get for $8 at CVS or Walgreens. And if you
need any more incentive to cut the drugstore out of the process,
consider that they also produce sets of six photos at a time—they just refuse to give you more than two unless you pay extra:
we waited for the photos to print out, I saw (with my own eyes) that
the photographs were printed on a 4″ x 6″ photo paper – and there were
6 copies on it. Then the dude coolly cut away 4 copies, disposed them,
and handed us the remaining two copies.
