How to prepare yourself?
Distance from the camera
Take the photo from a distance of about 20 inches from your face. Ideally, the photo should be taken by another person.
Face in front of the camera
Place your face in front of the lens and keep a neutral expression on your face. Hold the camera at face height.
Just stand facing a light source such as an exposed window. Don't worry about the background.
Nexus Card Photo Guidelines
If you want to apply for a Nexus Card, you need to prepare one photo meeting special requirements. Do you know how they are? We present you below the full list of requirements for a Nexus Card application. It is important to remember that an incorrect photograph attached to the application will cause a denial.
Now you are able to prepare a proper Nexus Card photo to be sure that you will obtain your document. It is easy with an online photo tool that allows you to upload your picture taken by a smartphone or digital camera and adjust it to the requirements such as size, crop, background color and others.
Nexus Card Photo requirements
The photograph of yourself in your Nexus Card must reflect your current appearance - it does mean that it should be taken within the last 6 months. In the picture a photographed person must look directly into the camera, his/her both eyes must be open with visible pupils and mouths closed. Full face view taken from close-up is a requirement.
The photo should be sharp and clear. It may be in color or black and white, it doesn’t matter.
Remember, that all glares (f.ex. given by eyeglasses) or shadows on your face will disqualify your photo.
If you have no conditions to take a picture with a plan, light background, take it anyway and use Nexus Card Photo Tool to change unwanted background into a required one.
Nexus Card Application photo rules
There are some “musts” and “must not” you need to be aware of to produce a propre picture for your Nexus Card Application.
In the picture you must:
- use a pale background without shadow
- look straight at the camera
- have your eyes open with visible pupils
- close your mouths
In the picture you must not:
- have a head covering
- cover your face features in any way
- use graphic or retouching computer software to interfere in the picture
- wear sunglasses or tinted glasses
You can smile in the picture but without an exaggeration.
Nexus Card Canada photo size and colors
Required image size of the Nexus Card photo is at least 35 x 45 mm in order to leave margin for potential cropping and zooming.
You do not need to crop and cut your photo. Use the Nexus Card Photo app and let us do it for you. You will receive a perfectly cropped and sized photo with a warranty of acceptance by authorities.
The image resolution should be a minimum of 160 dpi to maintain high quality if zooming will be needed. The resolution of the image should not be over 300 dpi.
You can take a color or black and white picture.
Nexus Card photo for minors
Children under 18 years old can be enrolled in the NEXUS program too. The rules for children’s photos are the same as for adults. You can help yourself with an online photo editor to resize, crop and adjust a background in your baby’s or child’s photograph.
Nexus Card Photo Tool
Not every photo of your face is suitable for a Nexus Card. The image must satisfy certain requirements and it may be not easy to meet them on your own. The solution is to search a professional photo studio or at least a photo booth but it requires time and money. Much better solution is to use an online photo editor, upload your picture and wait for a few seconds to get it ready. Sounds easy? It is!
Our application will do most of the job for you: will resize and crop the image, adjust the background and at the end verify if the photograph meets all the requirements. If you prepare it with us, we guarantee you that it will not be rejected. It is important as a badly cropped or size picture may cause a delay in processing your Nexus Card application.
We provide photos for IDs from all over the world. You’ll find the one you are looking for!
