Free and instant IC Photo for Singapore NRIC and Passports

If you need an IC Photo for Singapore NRIC, Passports or work visa like Employment Pass you may think that you need to spend $7 at a photo booth. Or if you are keen to save you can spend hours with your digital camera and photo editing tools to create some.

Since this December you also have a free and easy to use alternative, a free  iPhone app developed by Tinkertanker.  By using this app, you can take a perfectly cropped picture that you can submit online to Immigration & Checkpoint Authority (ICA).  The application is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.

All you need to do is to line yourself up with the guides to make sure you’re framed correctly. Take your own picture (for devices with front-facing cameras), or have someone else take it for you. Your photo will be automatically cropped and resized for ICA's specifications for NRIC/passport photos (400 x 514px). With the guides, you won’t get a letter from ICA that telling you to "show more shoulder" in your photo.[1]

Here is your photo cropped to ICA requirements :)
