We get it, this is a busy time of year. If you’re crafty and enjoy making cards for your loved ones, you could probably spend hours (maybe even days?) creating something special for everyone on your list. We know that just isn’t realistic for most people, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make something awesome, even if you only have a few minutes. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get the most out of PicCollage as you create your cards, regardless of how much time you’ve got.
If you only have a few minutes, our templates offer the perfect way to create a professional looking card. We have tons of fun options for Holiday, Christmas, Hanukkah, and Winter.
Step 1: In the PicCollage app, tap Cards.
Step 2: Scroll through a variety of Holiday favorites and choose your favorite.
Step 3: Tap Photos, and import your desired photo or photos to the template. Adjust the photo size accordingly.
Step 4: Tap Done and Save to Library.
Step 5: Now just print or send your card!
