To learn how to make personalized greeting cards, just download the Windows or Mac version of Movavi Photo Editor, read the short guide below – and prepare for a burst of creativity!
1. Install Movavi Card Maker
Run the installation file and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. Run Photo Editor and Upload Your Picture
Launch the program. Click Browse for Images and select the image for your new card. You can also drag the file you want from its folder to the program’s working area.
3. Get Creative with Special Effects and Editing Tools
To give your card that special something, you can add atmospheric effects. Open the Effects tab and try some of the options. The Textures category is perfect for creating a magical feeling: try soft Bokeh, shiny Night lights and Stars, romantic Hearts, stylish Metal, or Water and Sunshine to remind the recipient of summer. Other categories include Classic, Artistic, Vignettes, and more. You’re sure to find what you need!
Experimenting with visual parameters can also produce interesting effects: just open the Adjust tab and play around with different sliders. To improve colors automatically, click the special Magic Enhance button.
If you want to make something funny and out-of-the-ordinary, you can change the background of your card. With Movavi Photo Editor, it’s incredibly easy. First, open the Background Removal tab and use the green brush to mark the object or person you want to keep on your card. Then mark the original background with the red brush and click Set New Background. Now you can choose the image for your new background by clicking Add Image. You can read more information on changing the backdrop here.
4. Add Some Text
If you’re making a birthday card or any other kind of greeting card, you’ll likely want to add a special title to it. To caption your image, open the Text tab and click the Add Text button. Type your text inside the frame over the image. You can add as many blocks of text as you want. Now edit your text as you want: choose the font, adjust the size, color, alignment, opacity, and more. Experiment with different toolbar controls and be amazed by the results!
5. Save the Result
When your card is ready, it’s time to save it. Click Save As in the lower right corner and specify the folder for saving, filename, and format. Click Save.
