There are even some camera that carry a facial recognition technology which will automatically crop the photo to the correct dimensions for the template. This provides a very consistent look to every photo as it eliminates complications with individuals who may stand too close or too far from the camera lens.

If you decide to go with a non-compatible camera, here are a few steps that you’ll need to take:

  1. Snap your photo.
  2. Upload the photo to your computer.
  3. Crop the photo down to the desired dimensions.
  4. Import the photo to the template you created in your design software.

This process is not complicated, however it does take more time than it would with TWAIN compatible alternatives.
