How To Create Passport Photo In Photoshop – Video Tutorial

How To Deal With Passport Size Photos In Adobe… by etutorialblog

The very beginning step is to open Photoshop and create a new file of 1.5 inches by 2 inches and set the resolution on 300 pixels, color mode RGB. Now go to File menu and open any existing image of yours which you have in your computer or find image through Google.

After opening your desired image choose Magnetic Lasso Tool for image selection. In the selection process you need to be very careful, take some time for better result because if you roughly treat the same step then the edges of the image become prominent and this is the worst thing according to my perspective.

After accomplishing the selection process go to Select menu and choose Feather option with 1 pixel radius. Then go to select menu and click on Inverse, choose any background color and press delete on your keyboard for implementing background or use this color code 504CF7 on your passport size photos.

Our next step is to create white border in our passport size photos. In this scenario I am going to use Rectangular Marquee Tool. Place it on suitable position and then press Shift+Ctrl+I on your keyboard for Inverse. Set your background color with white and Go to Edit menu and click on clear. By doing this you can make white border on your image. You can also use brush tool for same practice.

Shift your passport size photo into blank template which I have created earlier with the help of Move tool. Try to adjust your passport size photo little bit. Go to Edit menu and click on Define pattern. Create a new file of 6 inches by 4 inches, Resolution 300 pixel and set the color mode on RGB. And go to select menu and click on All then go to Edit menu and click on Fill, in dropdown list you need to choose Pattern and then select your custom pattern which you created manually and save it. By doing this you get some nice passport size photos ready in front of you which is ready for print.
