Photo Explosion is not just a photo editing program. You can do much more in this program. One of the things that you can do is create Photo Business Cards. Photo Business Cards are business cards with your photo on them. In this tutorial I will show you how to create your own photo business cards. The cards are easy to create and you can customize them the way that you want them.
Open Photo Explosion and click the Create button. Then click the Photo Project button. On the left side where the folders are, you will need to click the plus sign beside the Business & ID Cards folder. When the folders expand, click the Business Cards folder.
On the right side of your program you will see the thumbnails of business cards that are available for you to use. All of the business cards are created about the same way, so it doesn’t matter which one you choose for this tutorial. I will choose the Abstract Business Card for this tutorial. So if you want to use that one to follow along and then go back and create the one that you want to use, that will be fine.
To select the Abstract Business Card, double click the thumbnail. That will open the card in a new window. Now you will need to select the photo that you want to insert into the business card. On the left you will need to select the folder that has the photo that you want to use. Then select the thumbnail of the photo. Double click it to insert it.
You can resize the photo by dragging the corners. To crop the photo, move your mouse off of the photo, your mouse will turn into a pair of scissors, click your mouse to cut it. To move the photo, simply drag it with your mouse.
Next, you can customize the text on the business card. To start customizing the text, click the Customize button at the top of your window. Then click the Text button in the left panel. When the menu pops up, click Add / Edit Text.
Click the name on the business card. You will see the name appear in the text field on the left. Delete that text and type the name that you want on the business card. Then click Update The Selected Text field and click the Apply button.
Next, click the address text. Delete the text in the text field and type the address that you want to appear on the business card. Click the Apply button to add the text to the card. To add new text, type the text that you want to add in the text box. Then click the Enter New Text field. Then click the Apply button to add the text.
To customize the color, style, and weight of the text, click the text with your mouse. In the left panel you will see the options for changing the font. Change the font to what you want. Tick the Update field and click Apply. That will change the style of your text.
Once you have finished customizing your text, you can save it and then print it. To save the text, click the Output button at the top. Then click the Save button on the left. Give your business cards a name and click the Save button. Now you can print your cards by clicking the Print button on the left.
