Designing Your Card


iPhoto provides only a few ways you can change the design of your card, making it extremely easy to come up with a sleek greeting card or postcard.

To design a card:

1.

Select the front of your card by clicking it.

2.

From the Design pop-up menu, choose a design (Figure 7.4). Repeat as necessary until you've found the design you like.

4.

From the Design pop-up menu, choose a design. Repeat as necessary until you've found the design you like.

5.

If you don't like any of the designs, click the Themes button and choose a new theme from the card design dialog.

6.

From the Background pop-up menu, choose a background color (Figure 7.5).

Enter text in the provided text boxes and, if you don't like the default text formats, reformat it as desired.

Tips

  • In general, I recommend sticking with the fonts that Apple's designers chose for each design. Otherwise, you risk picking a font that won't print well or may not look as you expect on the finished card.

  • You can enter text only in the provided text boxes. Different themes may offer additional places to enter text, but in general, text options are limited with cards.

  • With postcards, the back of the card can accept either a design that provides room for general text or a design that provides space for an address and a stamp.
