Re: 2 x 2 passport photos. What I do.

First, I scanned in the template that was in the passport application, and opened it in PhotoShop. Next, I loaded the image for the passport into PhotoShop and added it as the top layer, and set the opacity if the layer to around 50% so I could see the template. Next, I resized the photo to fit within the template (with the face, from top of hair to chin, falling between the limits of the dotted and solid circles). Finally, I set the opacity to 100% and printed with the print size set to 2"x2". It worked perfectly on my Epson R1800 printer.
