How to Create Stunning Photo Christmas Cards

To help you create stunning photo Christmas cards that feature your own photographs, consider these tips for that perfect snapshot:

  • Make sure you have a camera with a high pixel count or set your camera for the highest resolution possible. Don't use a cellphone camera, even if you can upload and print out the picture later.
  • Rely on your cameras' auto focus features to adjust the image to properly contrast with the background.
  • Keep the backdrop as simple and clutter free as possible for a sophisticated look for your photo insert Christmas cards.
  • Maintain and use light to add texture and interest to your photo for more dramatic photo Christmas cards.
  • Avoid posing in front of any glass or mirrored services that can bounce the light from the flash back at the camera.
  • If taking a photo outside, the ideal lighting situation is to shoot the subject in the shade with the background lit indirectly by the sun. Use a flash to light up the subjects for the photo.
