It's standard fare in Europe and parts of Asia to have not only your picture, but personal information like marriage, number of children, etc. About the only time I get resumes with pictures on them, they are usually from one of the above locations.
I can't imagine anyone who coaches resume writing in the U.S. would suggest that anyone put their picture on it! And if they are, they should stop! Not smart.
