    Hello there! by the end of this tutorial you’ll be able to edit and crop your green card electronic diversity visa photo.

    Before you go to the photographer to take your photo, or before taking your photo by yourself, please read these tips:

    – Avoid too much light/less light in photograph
    – Avoid shadows, use PhotoShop to make white/light background
    – If your glasses will reflect lights, take them off
    – stay focused, and looking straight to the camera
    – make sure you appear in the center, and don’t laugh or smile too much
    – make sure photograph is in good quality, with original colors
    – take a wide bigger photo to edit later
    – if you are committed to wear specific clothing like Hijab or religious and traditional cloths, you don’t need to take them off, just make sure face features appear.
