Bank of America provides users the option of personalizing their credit card using the Photo Expressions feature. The feature allows users to place a 2-by-2 inch photo onto a card used for both customization and security purposes. The customized photo uses a digital JPG, GIF or BMP image, and as a customer of Bank of America, you will get this service for free on any of your Bank of America credit cards.
Visit Bank of America's Photo Expression feature website. From the site, click either "New Customer" or "Existing Customer." If you are a new customer, you will have to sign up for a new credit card and follow the on-screen instructions for completing the personalized photo option. If you are an existing customer, log in to your account by entering both your user name and password.
Select a card by clicking on the check box. Once you have signed in, you will automatically be taken to the card selection menu. Click "Continue" to proceed.
Select "Upload." A drop-down menu will appear asking you to upload a saved JPG, GIF or BMP image from your computer. All digital cameras or scanned photos will automatically convert your photos into one of these three formats.
Crop your photo. Drag the "Crop" tool over the area of the photo that you wish to set as your image. If necessary, click "Rotate" to rotate the image 90 degrees.
Click "Preview." The image shown will provide you with an approximation of how the photo will look on the card. If you are satisfied with the appearance, click "Continue" to finish customizing your card.
Do not provide photos of celebrities, athletes, musicians or public figures, images containing provocative, offensive, racial or political materials, as these images will not be accepted.
