With Thanksgiving right around the corner (how did that happen?!), a lot of us are starting to think about our Holiday greeting cards.
Have you considered making your own?
A personalized greeting card, complete with images of you and your close family and friends can add an especially personal touch to the holiday season. And the good news is that Photoshop Elements makes it really easy.
Let’s look at how it’s done.
Creating a Greeting Card
Open the Organizer and select the images that you want to include on your greeting card:
To select multiples images that are right next to each other in the Organizer’s Media Browser, click on the first image and then hold down the Shift key and click on the last image. This will select the first and last images and all the others in between.
To select multiple images that don’t show together in the Media Browser, click on one of these images and then hold down the Ctrl key on a PC or the Command key on a Mac and click on the additional photos. Each of these photos will be selected.
You will be able to tell which photos you have selected because they will show with a blue border around them and, if you are using Elements version 13, a blue-boxed check mark on the lower right corner.
In the screen shot below, you can see that I have selected three photos for my greeting card. Two of these photos are wider than they are tall, so they are in the landscape format. The third is taller than it is wide, so it’s in the portrait format.
Now, go to the Create menu by clicking on the button at the top of the interface. From there, choose Greeting Card.
The Photoshop Elements Editor workspace will launch and the Greeting Card dialog will open.
