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) Paint.COM 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.

The card creator should have an "open template" button that lets the user search through the personal file to find the place where they saved there custom templates. Just a suggestion.

Great software - many thanks!

I agree with the last comment. This software would be much easier and nicer to use if there was a button to browse and select templates, or even better a way to add them to the default 4 templates so they could also be selected by clicking through.

-Or a way to get windows explorer to give a thumbnail of the templates so that you could see what you are loading...

Actually, if you use the card creator plug-in for RWPaint, you would get all of those features (if you store your templates in the tagged library).
