Question Is photo sent to ECFMG seen by PDs?

Do you think that the photo we send while applying to step 1 is seen by program directors later when we apply to programs.. if so, may it affect their 1st impression towards us ?? should we care so much about our looking at it ?

Later on in ERAS, you can use the same photo or choose another one. So it's not seen by program directors.
