How to Take Your Own Passport Photo

I was having a hard time converting a digital photo down to the correct 2″x2″ physical size. Then I found this article: take your own passport photos. At first, I was thinking “Tell me something I don't know.” Then I saw the link to the State Department's own online passport photo editor (FIG-cropper). Perfect! Well, I'm still ugly in the photo, but they can only do so much.
