Step number 3. Insert a new photo – when getting an image, see to it that hit has the same size and resolution as the one present on the valid ID. Zoom in or zoom out of the new photo so by that, the head will be of the same size as what in the original photo. To be able to match with the original photo, you may adjust the brightness and contrast. You’re doing fine so long as the new picture isn’t too dark or too bright.
Step number 4. Change the text fields – try finding fonts that are close to the one that’s used on the current ID, to be safe use courier w/ slab serif especially on older IDs. Adjust the font spacing and size as well so by that, it will be a close match.
While entering a full name, do it without abbreviations and the only instance when you need to use it is for things like III or Jr. It’ll be wise move for you to put a realistic birth date as well. If you are making use of old ID as template, you don’t want to keep it that way as it may say that the person was born in 50s but still looking at his 20s.
Step number 5. Print out the new ID – while printing the new ID, it will be recommended to put it on heavy cardstock and see to it that you have printed on both the back and front. After that, cut out every side of the new ID and glue the two sides so they will be able to form a card. All overlapping edges ought to be trimmed.
Step number 6. Add holograms – this one is optional but if you wish to add a layer of authenticity to your ID, then adding a hologram will do its job.
