This photo will appear on the identification badge you will wear at the bar examination. To be acceptable, it must meet the following criteria:
- You must appear in the photo from the shoulders to just above the top of the head
- No part of your body below the shoulders may be in the picture
- Your head and shoulders must be square to the camera (not a 3/4's or profile shot)
- It must be in color
- It must be taken in front of a light-colored wall in a very well-lit room
In addition, your photo must meet the following technical requirements:
- it must be in jpg/jpeg format
- it must be in portrait orientation (taller than it is wide), approximately 120 pixels in width and 160 pixels in height
- it must have a file size of less than 100kb
If the photo you want to use does not meet these technical requirements, you can crop, rotate, and/or resize it
A photo meeting any of the following criteria will result in a letter from the board asking for a new photo, potentially resulting in late fees being assessed:
- A candid shot from which your image has been cropped.
- A "glamour" style photo. In these photos typically a person is neither square to the camera nor is the photo limited to the shoulders up.
- A photo containing a visible digital tag, such as a Facebook name tag.
- A scanned physical photo in which the resulting image was not cropped to remove the non-picture part of the scan. In addition, the scanned photo may not contain a watermark, such as a passport or state seal, or be a photo that you do not own reprint rights for.
