How to take a photo for an ID card correctly?

The most detailed instructions are described in section Photo Instructions for Good Fake ID

Briefly to ensure your fake ID looks as realistic as possible, it’s important to follow these photo guidelines:

  • Use a plain light-colored background with no patterns or textures.
  • Make sure there are no shadows on your face or behind you.
  • Office lighting is ideal, like in a DMV.
  • Stand about 1.5 feet in front of the background to avoid shadows.
  • The person taking the photo should stand 5 feet in front of you.
  • Look straight into the camera with a normal expression, mouth closed and not smiling.
  • Eyes should be fully visible with hair away from your face and eyes as much as possible.
  • Remove glasses if possible or ensure there’s no glare or reflections on the lenses.
  • No sunglasses or tinted glasses.
  • No headwear unless for religious or medical reasons.
  • Do not crop your photo; we’ll do it for you.
