How to Customize a Christmas Card in Shutterstock Editor
You can use one of the text-free JPEG images in the pack as a suitably festive background for a design using editing software like Shutterstock Editor.
First, use the My Content (M) tool to upload the JPEG straight from one of the Without Text folders in your download.
Upload the design of your choice to Editor and make it wholly your own.
Bring up the text editing option with the Text (A) button, then select Add Headline.
Navigate to the right hand side of the workspace to choose from a large library of free fonts and select color palette options. Try experimenting with the styling of your text by adding drop shadows or creating a hierarchy of headlines, subheadings, and body text.
Add custom text before sharing your holiday card.
When you’re finished creating your own custom holiday image, simply head up to the red Download button to save the image to your computer. Or, go straight to the Share button to upload to your social media account.
