Making Personalized Greeting Card From Your Photos

Busy schedules during the holiday season prevent working citizens from writing personal greeting cards to friends and family. In an age where people must work two jobs to pay phone bills and mortgage payments, working citizens are lucky when they find the time to purchase holiday gifts. To help people keep in touch with loved ones during the holiday season, companies have created greeting card software programs.

Computer-generated cards are currently in style because of their customizable designs and low-cost. Since people often like to exchange individual or family portraits, card software programs have enabled customers to make card sets from individual portraits, family portraits, or combinations of both.

To make greeting card sets, people first need to purchase a software program. With the program, they may create a professional looking holiday card using an original template, of which they have dozens to choose from, or they may create a simple photo card. Either way, they require a digital camera or a compact disc containing the portraits they wish to use. If people do not wish to use a portrait or a combination of portraits, they can use a picture of an object or a nature photo or create a collage with such pictures.

After uploading the desired portraits or pictures into the program, people may write a custom title message for the card front and a holiday message for inside the card. People have the option of customizing the text as well. So, the title message can appear like snow or glittering ribbon and the holiday message can warm hearts further with holiday colored text.

Once people make greeting card sets, they can save the original card as a JPG, PNG, or BMP image file. This allows people to print and send out more holiday cards if they forgot a distant family member or two in the initial printing batch.

Besides the holiday season, software programs are ideal for every holiday and celebration. The template themes make greeting card sets customizable for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Independence Day, birthdays, seasons, sporting events and more. To create a valued greeting card, people merely need to upload a photo and add a message.

When rushed and low on money, people can use greeting card software programs to make card sets and remind friends and family of their love and kind regards.
