GCS Greeting Card Studio is a feature-rich and fun application designed to offer an easy way to create custom greeting cards that can contain images, borders, stickers, and premade backgrounds.
It's wrapped in a well-organized interface, divided into the working area, the graphics, text and templates panel, and the background settings. The supported image formats are JPG, BMP, TIFF and PNG.
Once the app is opened, you have the choice to create a new design using a template or begin from scratch. Next, you have to select the card and folding sizes, like half and quarter tall or wide. The template gallery comes with a wide variety of categories such as birthdays, Christmas, Valentine's day, wedding or new baby. You can also make posters and invitations.
The app lets you add and edit text using different font types, styles and colors, as well as set its transparency level and rotate it to a particular angle. The symbols and cliparts are structured in general groups, like books, celebration, computer, flowers or science. Each category comes with other several models.
It's possible to insert borders, patterns or your favorite photos from the computer. The pictures' attributes can be corrected by adjusting the brightness and contrast. If you made mistakes, undo and redo functions come in handy to help you go back to the previous design. The output can be published as a PDF file or image. Plus, the design can be uploaded to Facebook, Flickr and Picasa.
Taking everything into account, GCS Greeting Card Studio is an intuitive program designed to help you save time when it comes to creating greeting cards for special events, such as weddings, birthdays, Valentine's day or Christmas. The app comes with a rich collection of stickers, symbols, default backgrounds and templates.
