Hello,

Can anyone tell me if there is a CAP photo background with just US Flag and CAP Flag for a professional photo?


Thanks!

This is the one that was sent out for National Staff College: https://miwg.smugmug.com/Squadrons/MI063-MonroeComposite/Misc/Monroe-Composite-Squadron-Misc/i-tF2HxKS/A

Huh, I could have sworn the OP wrote "[...] a CAP photo background with just US Flag and CAP Flag for a professional photo?" [emphasis mine]

I could be wrong.

True, but very easy to cut out a plain white background in Photoshop. Once things get a little closer to normal we'll set up a photo day on blues night, have each member in front of a plain white backdrop, and then I'll make 2 copies, one a closer crop for their 101's and ID's, the other with the backdrop removed and the flags in the background for bio photos.

Thank you so much for photo. They didn't offer us a photo like this when I went to NSC in 2012. They actually didn't offer many photos at all.

People use "professional" photos all the time for CAP ID photos, thus my comment.

That regular round of "Star Shots" from conferences is usually good for 5 or 10
denials of new photo IDs in the weeks after.

You're welcome, I wasn't at NSC but this question came up a few weeks ago in the CAP Public Affairs FB group and Lt Col Bowden posted this photo and said that was the one sent out this year. Maybe because it was virtual?

Not lately. It would never get approved if submitted.

At the last (in-person) National Conference in Baltimore, NHQ offered the professional pictures with the flags in the background AND a plain white background for IDs.   I thought that was a great idea.

They have been doing that since at least 2010.
