Stupid question about Picture on MPRE Admission Ticket

Postby blong4133 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 12:48 pm

How strict are they? I've been fighting with my picture trying to get it to print out at the right size and it's slightly off.

I can't imagine them making a big deal about the picture being a little smaller than the box, but I'm still curious. I just don't feel like going down to wal-mart just so I can get the picture to be exactly 2x2.

Have you thought about printing it bigger and cutting it down to 2x2?

lol. Sadly I have. But I don't have any good program for altering pictures, and I cannot, for the life of me, get it to print to a size where that would work. it's either way to big to the point where I would have to cut off just about everything except my eyes and nose...or there's about a quarter of an inc smaller than what it needs to be. Trust me...I'm extremely frustrated with the damn thing.

(apologies for posting here as a 0L)

Word allows you to exactly define the size of an image inserted in a document. Much better than MS Paint, which is utterly useless.

CVS or Walgreens will take a passport picture for like $5. At this point, you've probably wasted that much in ink, paper, and time.

I got mine at CVS. It was $9.99, but I printed a $2 off coupon from their website. It sucked paying $7.99 plus tax for a stupid picture, but I didn't want to deal with doing it myself.
