Photo Explosion has a nice section of certificates for you to create. They also have a nice selection for kids. In this tutorial I will show you how to create photo certificates for kids using Photo Explosion. These certificates can be used for all kinds of things. I will show you step by step how to create these certificates.
Open your Photo Explosion program and click the Create button on the left of the screen. Then click the Photo Project button on the right side of the screen. A window will open and you will see a list of folders on the left side of the window. Click the plus sign beside the Certificates folder. Then click the Just for Kids folder.
On the right side of your window you will see the certificates that are available for kids. I will use the Baseball certificate for this tutorial. All of the kids certificates are done just about the same way, so I’ll show you how to do this one and you can choose which one you want to do.
Go ahead and double click on the Baseball certificate. Now you will need to replace the photo that is in the certificate with the photo that you want to use. On the left side of your window you will need to locate the folder with the photo that you want to use. Then select the photo from the panel on the left. Click the photo and then click the Apply button. You can move the photo by dragging it with your mouse. You can resize the photo by grabbing the corner of the photo and dragging it inward or outward.
Now you will need to customize the certificate. Click the Customize button at the top of the window. First, we will customize the text. Click the Adjust Text button and click Add/Edit Text from the menu. That will bring your text panel up on the left side. Click the text that you want to change. When you click the text, you will see it appear in the text box on the left. Delete the text from that box and type the text that you want to appear on the certificate. Tick the Update Text field and click Apply. That is how you change all of your text.
You can change the font style, color of the font, and the weight of the font in this panel too. Below the text box you will see the font style drop down box. Drop that box down and select the font that you want to use. Below that you will see the color options. Select the color that you want to use or you can use a pattern or gradient.
Once you have the certificate the way that you want it, you can save it or print it. Click the Output button at the top of your program. On the left side you will see your options. Click the option of your choice.
