Order lost in the ether - with no notification
UPDATED: the developer did end up giving me a courtesy credit, which I appreciated. And the photos arrived about 10 days after ordering; they’re good quality. I do wonder about some of the other recent reviews though - some sound pretty canned (the one app I can’t live without? During the pandemic, when you can’t get out of this country if you wanted to?). But in the end, issues resolved and sure better than trying to DIY or go to the drugstore for a photo.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: I put through several orders using the app but never got any kind of confirmation, so I finally emailed to see what was up. Two days later I got an email saying that their PayPal system was down and that I should make sure I wasn’t charged. I wasn’t, but when I requested to pay using a credit card I was told I had to start from scratch. So it’s now a week later, no photos are on the way, and I have to hang up another white sheet to stand in front of to do this all over again. Fail. Major fail. The app team did NOT offer a comp (despite the fact that their email signature insists they will make it right). And as far as I can tell, it’s still possible to pay using PayPal, which means others’ orders are going into oblivion as well.

Hello, we have reached out to you via email and working with you to resolve this.
Don’t go to Walgreens or anywhere else!
I spent $15 at Walgreens to have my passport photo taken for me. The employee seemed really tired and fed up, so I was scared to ask to have my picture retaken. I looked awful and was really upset how it came out.
Passport photos are stuck with you for 10 years. Feeling really unhappy with the one that was taken for me at Walgreens (not to mention the ridiculous price), I downloaded this app and thought “there’s no harm in trying this out.” Due to poor lighting in my house, I took my own photo at school while standing in front of a plain white wall under the fluorescent lights in the hallway. Yes you read that right. I took the photo myself. It took a couple of tries to position my shoulders and extend my arm in a way to where it didn’t look obvious that I was taking a “selfie.” What’s great about this app is that the outline (where you keep your face in place) is completely accurate and the app saves two identical 2x2’s in a single frame just like the ones at Walgreens. I uploaded the photo onto the Walgreens app which costed less than a dollar to have them print it. I stapled that baby onto the passport application and prayed that they wouldn’t find a reason not to accept it. Luckily, they did!! This app works and I’m so glad it exists.

Thank you Joce_xo for the review! I feel you...I started making the app because of a bad experience I had getting my photos at a pharmacy by someone who was slow and didn't care. Having someone care makes a big difference! I'm glad you were able to figure out better lighting as many people struggle with lighting at home. I've also had success at schools and offices using white walls as well as whiteboards. Thanks again for the feedback!
Just need a way to import an existing photo, resize it, align it and email formatted copies in 2x2x6 layout. Here, we want to use existing photos as opposed to snapping new photos with the app.
2. Background color is coming as gray even when I use 4200 lumen studio lights and hence could not use the PP photos. Went to Walgreens to have PP photos take professionally but all they did is lower a white screen in an aisle and use a very tiny Canon camera (so tiny it can fit in a fist or shirt pocket). Later I saw the guy filling background color with white using their application before printing copies because even their photos came with a gray background. And they charged $16 for 2 photos! So this is an issue everyone has. So we need a Fill tool to mark and fill/paint the grayish background with white.
With the above two enhancements, this FREE app will be Golden !!
