Discussion on: How To Write A Kick-Ass Technical Resume

I don't understand why you put picture of yourself on a resume. I believe that recruiters should look on your skills and education and maybe application letter but not on how you look like as that has nothing to do with the job you are applying for.
I really like UK standards where actually CV with photo will likely be discarded.

You don't need to add a photo. It's personal preference.

I agree with your point but there are job applications where it is required to have a photo, in Switzerland at least.
Personally, I would opt for a smaller photo in passport format.
