St. Valentine’s day is coming! Someone has already prepared presents, somebody is still looking for the ideas. In this post, I decided to collect some free software ideas that you could use in your preparations to the holiday.
For those who want hearted Valentine cards
One of the easiest ways to get a funny and sweet card is to use PhotoFaceFun service. I have already written about it in the post on online photo collages with magazine cover design. Go to PhotoFaceFun effects page, select a photo of the person who you like and click the Generate button. Now you can easily print the collage or upload to your favorite network. Some more Valentine collage resources are:
- PhotoFunny.net - use a set of heart shaped photo effects. I liked the one that is on the 2nd page. Very cute!
- PhotoMix - 77 wonderful pre-made collages and scrapbooks wait for you.
- Freepik - offers not only pink and red templates but also stylishly made black-and-white cards. I didn't even guess that it could look so good!
For those who want hearty PowerPoint presentations
Those who are ready to spend more time on preparing a present than just one click on the web, I would suggest that you have a look at ready PowerPoint presentations with St. Valentine’s themes. Please revise some tips and reasonable and crucial pieces of advice on how to download free PowerPoint templates.
So you go to:
- Indezine - nicely done free Valentine's day PowerPoint templates.
- PoweredTemplates - 36 pages (!) full of hearted PowerPoint backgrounds for St.Valentine presentation. I got lost.
... download the themes you liked and start adding texts, photos, animation, anything that occurs to you. Be careful, it can be catchy.
For those who want textured stuff
Some time ago I read a wonderful article devoted to making digital Valentine hearts with various textures. Unfortunately, the software described is paid. For those, who got interested anyway, the article on creating Valentines cards is here. But I was impressed by the idea of texture fillings for the hearts and decided to find freebies for our blog. And here is the list of blogs where I found some wonderful examples:
