Common automatic capturing systems employ text and voice instructions to guide users to capture their identification (ID) photos, however, the capturing results may not conform to the specifications of ID photo. To address this issue, this study proposes an ID photo capturing algorithm that can automatically detect facial contours and adjust the size of capturing images. In the experiments, subjects were seated at various distance and heights for testing the performance of the proposed algorithm. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can effectively and accurately capture ID photos that satisfy the required specifications.
