Gotfreecards.com offers a lot of free animated e-cards, but what if you want to personalize things a bit?
You can easily add photos to most e-cards on the site; and of course, it’s free. Just go to gotfreecards.com, and pick your favorite card.
After you click on the card and it’s finished loading, click “Play” to start the animation. See in the bottom right-hand side of the card, where a button says, “Click to add photo and voice”? You guessed it: click!
You’ll be taken to a screen with a stock-photo near the top of the page, and below that there’s a button that says, “Upload Image.” Yup: click it, too.
After clicking through the user agreement, basically saying you agree not to do anything obscene or offensive to the person you’re sending the card to, you’re taken to a file-upload browser. Just scan through your files and find the picture you want to use, and click “Open”. You’re back on the main page now, and that stock photo will be replaced by the picture you’ve chosen.
Then just proceed in the same way you would with any other card, by filling out the information for the person you’re sending the card to, at the bottom of the page. When you’re done, you can click “Preview” to see your card. Basically, the card will play, just as it normally would, but after the animation your chosen image will be displayed, as well. And now, just click “Send,” and you’re done!
