How to make your own e-cards?

  1. Download the tool to your Desktop (or to a folder of your choice).
  2. Run the tool - no installation is needed.
  3. Click on individual placeholders and select a photo for each of them.
  4. If you change your mind, double-click the placeholder again to use a different photo.
  5. Switch card template by clicking on the ''Template'' button. There are 3 built-in templates and other can be downloaded on this page.
  6. Click the Save button to save your greeting card as an image. You can then print it, send it via email, or upload it to facebook or share it via other means.

Using custom templates

Card Creator allows you to make cards using one of the three built-in templates, but it also allows you to use custom templates for more variability. To use a custom template:

  1. Download a template (.rli file) and save it to a known location on your computer (like your Documents folder).
  2. Start Card Creator
  3. Drag and drop the template file onto the Card Creator window.

Creating custom templates

Making a custom template requires basic skills with the (free) RealWorld Paint image editor. A template is every image that fulfills the following criteria:

  • Has two layers
  • Lower layer is called "layout".
  • Upper layer is called "frame".
  • No layer effects are used.
  • The "layout" layer contains limited amount of sufficiently different colors. Areas designated by the colors are placeholders for the actual images.

If the last condition sounds confusing, download and open one of the templates in Paint.COM and all will be clear.

Look to the tutorial video - How to create own template.

Heeeeiiii Trovata la soluzioneeeeee!!!

avevo scaricato moltissimi template di file con estensione .rli
ebbene ... la stragrande maggioranza non funzionavano ...
ne ho caricati parecchi su "RW-Paint-COM-2013.1" ho fatto varie
prove ma niente ... continuavano a non funzionare ...
poi per caso ho trovato la soluzione ...
per caso mi sono imbattuto in una vecchia versione ...e cioè ...

RW-Paint COM 9.1.0 ... sorpresa sorpresa ...

se si caricano i template su questo software e poi si risalvano ...
senza fare nessuna operazione ... si capito bene caricare i tenplate e salvarli ...
ebbene non so cosa succede ... ma i templte funzionano alla grande su Card Creator 1.0 ...
penso che i template scaricati ... siano stati creati con:
"RW-Paint-COM-2013.1" ... ma questo produce file.rli incompatibili con Card Creator 1.0 ...
Ho passato una giornata a caricare e salvare template ...
ma ora funzionano alla grande ...
mi sono dilungato troppo ...
saluti a tutti ... quasi nonno settantenne
meditate gente primoarmigeri meditate ... Ciaoooo!!!

Hello,I have a question-who is the author of the templates-poscards?

user icon Vlazteron registered user on November 21st 2019

The authors of these templates-poscards are various users, like cdl, Vlasta, Sirea, Erik, The Male Boss, etc. Not everyone that makes those templates-poscards are just admins or contributors. Also, to use them just drag the template-poscard to CardCreator and then release, after doing that it will appear the template there. I hope this helped you :-)
