So I found ePassportPhoto.com. Seemed really simple. I just uploaded
the photos and dragged a box around our heads with green boxes placed
on the top of the head and the chin. Then it produced a sheet of six
identical 2x2" photos designed for a standard 4x6" photo print.
I don't know about the green boxes, but once you have your 2x2 crop
here is an ImageMagick command to paste six copies into a 4x6 sheet.
(%1 represents your file name.)
convert %1 +clone +clone +append +clone -append multi_%1
The embedded application places the uploaded photo so that the
eventual 2x2" box can be selected. I clicked on one corner, and as I
expanded the square, it had translcuent green rectangles that are
supposed to target the top of the head and the chin. I guess it's
supposed show the State Dept's 1 to 1-3/8" vertical height for the
head. Once the size of the box is laid down, the box can be dragged
around to place the head within the box. Nice tool, and I'm sure
something similar can be done on a local computer's software. This
one finally produces an 1800x1200 that downloads to the local computer
or gives options to send to a third party to print.
Thanks for the suggestion. So I'd have to produce a square image
first, right? ImageMagick looks like a command line tool and not
something with a high-level GUI.
