Those who like designing their own greeting cards can either use any of the many professional graphic design tools available or create elegant and personalized greeting cards with Ashampoo Photo Card. In just a few steps and with a few mouse clicks, this tool produces high-quality cards using your favorite photos, an extensive collection of templates and clipart objects, and the message of your choice.
This elegant tool bases the card creation process in two things – a picture of your choice and one of the many templates it offers. You can choose any picture from your photo collection or use your webcam to take a snapshot on the spot and import it directly into Photo Card. The choice of templates is fairly wide – they’re all organized alphabetically by themes, such as Animals, Birthday, Christmas, Collage, or Easter, to name but a few. The program will insert the image selected into the card template, though you can move it around, resize and rotate it, and apply creative effects to it in order to add an even more professional touch to the entire design. You can also add your own messages and select any of the many clipart objects available to add that funny or elegant finish to your greeting card.
The entire process may take from a few seconds to as long as you wish – it all depends on how much time you’ve got and how creative you want to be. Except for the template design itself, everything you put on your cards can be edited, embellished, and enhanced using the wide variety of editing tools that the program provides.
Once you’re happy with the design, Ashampoo Photo Card offers you various options. From saving it to disk, printing it, or sending it to the clipboard to the possibility of sending it to the intended recipient via e-mail or webmail, and even of uploading it to Picasa, Facebook, and Ashampoo Web, all without leaving the program.
Ashampoo Photo Card is a highly useful design tool to create stunning greeting cards without going into the trouble of starting from scratch. Its extensive choice of templates and editing features, together with the many output and sharing options provided, guarantee high-quality greeting cards in which your creativity is the only limit.
