Whether we apply for a new document or renew an old one, somehow the thought about the ID photo often slips our mind. In the era when most services can be done by a smartphone online, why should we still leave our house to find a photo booth or photographer for an official ID photo?
That was exactly our thought! Hence, the Smartphone iD app – the solution for getting your ID photos that will be 100% approved by any authority in your email and mailbox without stepping outside the house. Receive your photos within an hour in your email, and choose to do it anytime of the day or week!
Finding a photo booth is already a tricky question as it is, especially if you don’t live in a city. But an equally important question should cross your mind – will my photo be approved by the authorities? A surprising 8 to 10% of people don’t receive their documents due to the unconfirming ID photo! After all, there is quite a list of standards by the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) that allow your passport, ID card or visa be accepted when crossing boarders!
It takes on average 17 minutes for a person to reach a photo booth – a waste of time and money that certainly is unnecessary. What’s more, while we are trying to protect ourselves and others from the virus, leaving home and touching undisinfected areas is not a desirable choice.
The path to get an ID photo from a photographer is even longer – going on internet, finding a certified photograph and finding a free window that works for you and the professional… too long and too much effort just for few pictures.
Estimates show up to 2% of ID photos done by 3500 independent photographers in France to be not valid. And we have not mentioned the price – on average you pay double the photo booth price.
Making ID photos online
If you read about photo booths and photographers above, you probably get an idea why should you use Smartphone iD. It’s an app that truly saves time, money and effort! Your photo will go through double control – first our app will check the conformity, and if the green light is given – our specialist team will continue the evaluation. It’s a handy solution for people with disabilities, who live in the countryside, for the elderly, as well as for baby ID photos.
If your photo is validated by our app and our team, you will receive it within few minutes in your email. You can print it yourself, or you can order it to be delivered by post within few days. In a case of unsuccessful photo, we will explain what was wrong and ask you to redo it with our app without any cost. Our goal is for you to have ID photos that will 100% conform with national and international standards.
Our software respects the standards of ISO/IEC 1979465 and the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) that guarantees ID photo quality and conformity with all the requirements (format, face angles, brightness, resolution etc.) Certain countries require stricter rules at national level that are programed into our software.
