Editors' review

When we first downloaded IDPhotoStudio, we figured that, based on its name, it would be a program that helps users capture and edit images to be used on photo IDs. Apparently, our expectations were too high. We can't really imagine any circumstance under which IDPhotoStudio would be useful; although it works, we're just not sure what the point is.

The program's interface is basic and easy to figure out, simply because the program doesn't have many features. Users load a photo, then select the size they want to use from a drop-down menu that has sizes listed alphabetically by country. For example, the United States is 2x2. We assume that these are the standard passport photo sizes for the countries listed, which is nice, but if you want to print an image in dimensions not on the list, you're out of luck. IDPhotoStudio doesn't have a cropping feature, so users must make sure that the original photo is appropriately cropped and has the correct aspect ratio. Users then select how many copies of the image they want to print on a single page, up to 20. We know that passport applications require multiple copies of the applicant's photo, but 20? We wondered if there was something about this program that we weren't getting, but the built-in Help file didn't work. Overall, we were extremely unimpressed; IDPhotoStudio has little in the way of features, and the features it does have can be easily found in a wide variety of other programs.

IDPhotoStudio is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We do not recommend this program.

    "Did exactly what I was looking for!"

    April 17, 2012   |   By dustyrose12

    Version: IDPhotoStudio 2.8.0.28

    Pros

    I needed a program to print ID photos for travel to Europe, where all sorts of various ID pictures are needed - for visas, ID cards, rail cards, etc. Unfortunately, none of my photo editing software or windows utilities would allow non-standard (i.e., not 8x10 or 4x6) sizes to be printed, so I was concerned that I might have to go to a local photo printing store to get it done. I don't know what problem the CNet staff had, because this was EXACTLY what I was looking for - had the 35x45 mm size as well as 30x40mm, 2x2 in, etc., and didn't include a lot of complicated options that would mess up the sizing.

    Cons

    Says it does what it actually does - no downsides if you're just needing to print a pre-taken photo.

    "Does exactly what it says on the box!"

    October 27, 2010   |   By Annetski

    Version: IDPhotoStudio 2.7.3.23

    Pros

    Really simple to use - I produced a sheet of 25 perfectly sized passport photos needed for multiple visa applications in seconds. All you need is the photo to upload.

    Cons

    Nothing. It's simple to use and does the job. They seem to have all sizes covered, but to have a custom size option might be good. The cnet reviewer should try to get out more and visit places that need a visa! There's a big world out there.

    Summary

    Simple and does the job if you already have your ideal passport photo and just need multiple identical copies.

    Version: IDPhotoStudio 2.5.0.17

    Pros

    Free! Easy to use!

    Cons

    It needs to produce Pics at 1" x 1" also, a very common size that is needed by many Gov't agencies

    Summary

    Overall it is good, but! it does need to produce 1" x 1" as well.

    "Simple, Marginally Useful"

    May 28, 2008   |   By OGollaher

    Version: IDPhotoStudio 2.3.0.13

    Pros

    If you want a simple, no frills photo editor/printer for UDs, this is a good pick.

    Cons

    Doesn't do anything any photo software package doesn't already do. But, hey, its free and uncomplicated. It may be just what you need.
