Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying the appearance of a card, part of Creating Cards, Calendars, and Books with Photos for OS X.
- Once you've got the basic template open,…it's now up to you to decide the appearance of the card.…And there's actually a lot of options,…but they're a bit hidden.…First up, fill the screen with the card.…This is going to zoom it in a little bit.…You'll see that you have the ability to view the front,…the back, or the inside of the card.…Let's start with the front of the card here.…And I'll right click on the card itself,…making sure I click in the empty area,…as opposed to one of the images.…Right clicking will be the right button on your mouse,…or two fingers on your track pad.…
And click and choose Layout Options.…This'll bring up the Options dialogue,…giving you a choice of how things are laid out.…For example, we could choose a different number of images,…and a crop with single photo layouts,…two photo layouts or three photo layouts…for this particular card.…You'll also notice that there's a wealth of colors available…and we can easily take a new background color.…For example, I'm going to choose a nice rich purple…
