Common problems or issues

  • Not enough space for image cropping. You can safely include the whole upper body while taking the photo since the software will crop the image for you.
  • Background should be white or off-white (grayish or yellowish white).
  • File size is too large. The photo size is limited to 2 MB for now.
  • supports all well known image formats produced by digital cameras (either Color or Black & White).
