• For summer photos. If you want to use photos from your vacation, try soft hues in pale greens to complement your summer photos.
• Crop, crop, crop. Don’t be afraid to tighten the frame. Remove background objects or use the Shutterfly crop tool to get a close-up shot of smiling faces. In addition, try cropping off-center for a more artistic look.
• Keep it neutral. If you find that your clothes clash with the colors of the card, use the black-and-white or sepia editing tool. The result can be surprisingly modern and fresh.
• Tell a story. For a collage-style holiday card, arrange photos that best tell your story. Crop in tight to make use of the small space. Try a series of photographs in motion to add a sense of animation.
