- Go to the site pho.to.
- A number of possibilities open up before us - go directly to the postcard creation mode (“Start Now”) or pre-edit a photo - “Quick Photo Correction”, “Retouch with one click”, “Free Photo Editor”, etc.
The Quick Photo Correction tool works automatically, you just upload a photo, wait a few seconds, and it's done. However, if you are not satisfied with the result, you can "play" with the settings in manual mode. The toolbar is located directly above the edited photo.
Also works "Retouch with one click." The user only needs to upload a photo and wait. This tool removes unnecessary glare from the skin, whitens teeth, reduces wrinkles, etc. And most importantly, it does not require any knowledge from you, everything is done automatically.
"Free Photo Editor" gives you the opportunity to put on the photo a variety of effects to choose from - upload photos and start experiments.
- So, we have edited the photo as needed, now we are starting to make a postcard by clicking "Start now". The template menu opens. You need to choose the one you like, right-click on it, click on "Open in a new tab".
- The new page displays the processing process, after a few seconds the photo will be placed correctly in the template. In this case, using the tools on the panel on the right you can add the necessary inscription.
- That's all, our postcard is ready! Now you can send it via social network, save or print.
How else can you make an exclusive postcard?
You can create a postcard with the help of special programs, for example, through the well-known Photoshop image editor, but online services make it possible to do everything without prior preparation and study of the features of the programs.
