Submitting Your Wheaton College ID Photo
The Public Safety department at Wheaton College now offers the ability for new students to provide an electronic copy of their photo for their Wheaton College ID card. Submitting your photo is a two step process.
1. Close all of your web browser windows and tabs (except this one) then click on the following link: Passport Photo. Follow the directions to upload your own photo, center and crop it, then download the electronic copy to your computer's desktop.
Once you have downloaded the photo to your desktop, resize it before uploading it to the Wheaton site.
On a PC - Open your photo for editing using an application program such as Microsoft Paint. Resize your image (which is probably 600 x 600 pixels) by 50%. If you right click on the image after resizing/saving it, the image can be no larger than 70KB (check the properties).
On a Mac - Open your photo for editing using an application program such as "Preview". "Preview" is located under "Finder" -> "Go" -> "Applications". Once you bring up the image in "Preview", select "Tools" -> "Adjust Size" then either lower the "width/height" or lower the "Resolution" and at the bottom in the "Resulting Size" section it will tell you what the size of the image will be, then hit "OK".
2. Once you have resized your photo, visit the Wheaton College ID Photo web site, log in with your Wheaton "w" ID and password, then upload your new photo.
If you are a new student you can visit the Balfour Hood Media Center at the beginning of the semester to pick up your ID card (watch your mail for more information regarding pick-up times). If you have any questions regarding this process please contact the Wheaton College Public Safety office at (508) 286-8213.
