Step number 3. Insert a new photo – as much as possible, try to get an image that is roughly the same size and resolution as the one present on the valid ID. Zoom in or zoom out of the new photo so the head will remain of the same size like in the original photo. You can adjust the brightness and contrast to match the original photo. So long as the new picture is not too dark or too bright, you are doing fine.
Step number 4. Change the text fields – when doing so, try finding fonts that are close to the one that is used on the current ID with ones being common are courier w/ slab serif especially on older IDs. And for it to be a close match, consider adjusting the font spacing and size.
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. Putting a realistic birth date as well will be wise of you. If you are using an old ID as template, you do not want to keep it so that it says the person was born in 50s but still looking at his 20s.
Step number 5. Print out the new ID – as you are printing your new ID, put it on a heavy cardstock and make sure that you print both the back and front. Then after, cut out every side of the new ID and glue both sides for them to form a card. And any overlapping edges should 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.
