The means are concentrated along two concepts: first, you get to include as many images as you like, and secondly, you can play with the predefined templates and clipart elements to reach the perfect design for each event.

The Looks

The latest iGreetingCard version includes multitasking capabilities, which means that you can work on several projects at the same time. As a result, each new window is considered to be a new project, and you are immediately prompted to choose one of the available templates.

The gallery is organized by major holidays (Christmas, New Year, Valentineís Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter), important events (Birthday, Graduation or Wedding), children-related cards, and a couple that could work for any occasion.

Currently, iGreetingCard contains over 60 templates, but each element can be easily replaced or adjusted. This way, you get to design a new card in just a few steps. There is a limitation, though: you canít change the background.

Once you choose the layout, you will enter the working area where you can view your image library (new folders can be added easily), the Clipart collection (frames and elements), the actual card (in this section, each element is editable), while on the bottom the buttons bar provides access to all additional features.

The Works

Making sense of iGreetingCard and how things work is quite easy since most of the features function on basic concepts, but for a quick video tour you can go to the iGreetingCard Online Help page.

Each card design features a background image, clipart frames where you can insert your photos (although pictures can be used without a frame), and clipart elements. The images and the clipart items can be added quickly through a simple drag and drop. When dealing with pictures, you can drag them from the library or from the Finder, or you can double click on the frame and choose the image.

On the bottom, you will find the Add Text button that will enable a text field and reveal the text panel on the left. You can input the message there, set the alignment, font, color and adjust the shadow.

With no exception, each element can be resized, moved and rotated. When you use multiple images you can specify their order, while the Mask panel allows you to give them amusing shapes (the templates go from blurred margins to animal designs).

The Settings take into account the overall card dimensions so you can easily make the necessary adjustments if you plan to print out the final result. In fact, there are three possibilities to export your work via iGreetingCard: print it directly, save it as an image (in JPG, PNG or TIFF format), or send it via email.
