Passport Photo

CNET Editors' review

The last time we had a passport made we ended up with one of those typical unattractive headshots from the local copy place. If you'd rather have a little more control over your passport photo--and we don't blame you, as you'll be stuck with it for a while--you might want to try Free passport photo software.

What you actually get with this program is not just a tool for correctly editing passport photos, but a whole suite of photo tools called CamToPrint. In addition to the passport tool, there are also utilities for creating photo albums, calendars, greeting cards, and collages. We only tried the passport feature, but the others may be worth checking out as well. The part of the program that handles passport photos is pretty simple. You select the image you want to use and the program helps center and crop it into the required size. There are also tools for rotating the image and adjusting the brightness and contrast. A drop-down menu lets you select whether you want to use United States or United Kingdom passport photo requirements, which are slightly different. We were disappointed that the "Show U.K. Passport Photo Requirements" button took us to the U.S. requirements instead; those in the U.K. will want to be on the lookout for this. Once you are satisfied that your photo meets the requirements, you can either print it directly from the program or save it to be printed professionally. Photos are saved or printed as one 4-by-6 image, with U.S. photos saved in sets of six and U.K. photos saved in sets of eight. The program doesn't have a Help file per se, but there is an online video tutorial that demonstrates its use. Overall, Free passport photo software doesn't have a ton of features, but it could be just what you need if you're looking for a quick way to ensure that your passport photo meets the necessary requirements.

    "Avoid, installs some suite and trys to upload toolbar"

    February 2, 2014  |   By Gaje12

    Version: Passport Photo 7.0

    Pros

    mmmmmmmmmm NONE
    (i had to enter 10 letters to reply!!)

    Cons

    Is a part of some suite not mentioned as part of the descriptors
    Slow and spends time harvesting your contact details details and again keeps trying to install 3rd party software (be alert..its sneaky)
    Did not work unable to shrink image to template size even was a a photo from my camera
    It seems you need to do photo editing work (shrinking image) prior to using this editor... not an acceptable flow process

    Summary

    The package seem more about piggybacking a whole range of "cr@p" onto the download and install as apposed to give a working application. I also believe it is an old outdated package unable to deal with the new and larger jpg file formats of current cameras (mines a few years old and only 16Mp) ...too much data..ie unable to shrink to fit.

    sorry but a total waste of time... i just spend the extra time with the feed back to help other avoid the same issue and wasted time

    "Installs Malware."

    August 21, 2013  |   By Lucky675

    Version: Passport Photo 6.4

    Pros

    Someone is making money from your suffering.

    Cons

    Delta Search Malware, worse Anti-Virus found System Files and core Google Chrome files had been altered. Who knows what this is actually doing.

    Summary

    This program doesn't actually work that well for passport photo's, any 5 star reviews are probably spam. This program bypasses all the security Windows and Internet Explorer has, it's very up to date in knowing vulnerabilities in Windows. It can be assumed this is doing some very nasty stuff. Shame on CNET for allowing this to stay here for so long. How many people need to report this?

    "Installs delta search. INCLUDES DELTA MALWARE"

    August 21, 2013  |   By savquar

    Version: Passport Photo 6.4

    Pros

    Program actually works fine and generates good passport pictures

    Cons

    SEARCH ENGINE HIJACKER. Installs Delta search even though I said that I did not wish to install it. Every time I clicked on the Google search bar, their changes redirected it to the delta search bar that looks like the Google version. Essentially the company tries to con users into thinking that they are using Google search. It took me hours of running various utilities to clean my system of their malware / browser hijacker. I am surprised that CNET allowed this program on their web-site and even more surprised that they have kept it there in spite of all the many user comments regarding its deceptive practices.

    Summary

    WOULD NEVER USE AGAIN OR RECOMMEND TO ANYONE. SOFTWARE PROVIDER NEEDS TO BE HONEST AND STRAIGHT FORWARD AND NOT USE THE DECEPTIVE PRACTICES THAT THIS COMPANY DOES
