While we love presenting new cards for our users to enjoy, we also work hard to create features that will make our existing cards look even cooler. To that end, we’re proud to present two new ways to further personalize your cards: photo filters and text effects.
You’ve been rummaging around for the perfect picture to spice up your next birthday or anniversary invitation. It’s a great picture on its own, but it could pop a little more if only you were a Photoshop master. Luckily, Photo Filters are on the case! Photo filters can help you make that picture even better without permanently changing the original image.
It’s so easy – here’s what you do:
- Find a photo card that you’d like to use
- Upload your photo or select a photo from your account
- Click the Photo Filters menu directly above the card image.
You can choose from eight unique filters that offer different layers and color washes. Go vintage glam with Juergen or add Technicolor for that Polaroid feel. Doing this will only change your photo in your card, so you can play with all of the filter possibilities until you find one that you love.
A personal favorite of ours is Vintage Sepia, which makes photos look like they came out of a forgotten shoebox in an ancient attic. Click a card below and get started – your cards will never be the same!
If you are looking for additional ways to make your text pop, we now have two new ways for you to give your card a designer touch.
You can emboss or letterpress the wording on your card to make it even more luxurious. Both of these effects make our online cards look all the more fabulous and authentic.
You can also use one of our new metallic fonts for a more upscale feel. Our personal favorite is a metallic font paired with a dark card to really bring out the glamour, like this card!
You can find out more about how we built this feature on our Dev Blog.
