Then the ID Photo USA app from developer vsmedia.de is just the thing for you! It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad, and runs on iOS 5.0 or later.
When the user initially loads the ID Photo USA app, they will be shown three main menu options: create a new passport photo, print stored passport photos, and send stored passport photos. They can also adjust settings such as preferred measuring unit, border availability, print orientations, print corrections factors, and attachment file formats. They can also access additional information such as passport photo requirements, passport photo templates, steps on using the app, and other relevant important items related to the proper usage of the app.
When creating a new passport photo, the user can either load an existing image from their device or take a new photo.

They can also send the stored passport photos by retrieving the saved image from their device’s camera roll feature as well.
Appearance and Layout:
The overall appearance of ID Photo USA is simplistic and user friendly. With well laid out features, and easy to read font, the app’s navigation is a cinch for users. The app’s functions are self-explanatory, and will the additional help of provision of useful information and tips on app features, and passport requirements, the user should have no trouble figuring what to do and where to go. There aren’t any fancy graphics associated with this app because they aren’t necessary.
Overall, the value for ID Photo USA is decent. Not everyone needs new or renewed passports that often, so this app may not be geared to the average user, but it is useful for those who travel out the country much or do business internationally and will constantly need to renew their passports. It definitely saves a lot of time and hassle, and not to mention money as well. Since a lot of passport photos got for around ten dollars these days, the cost definitely adds up, especially those who need to apply for additional out of the country visas which may require additional passport photos. That in comparison to the $1.99 price for this app, and the time saved from going to the actual photo taking place, then this app is definitely worth the value.
