Bill Atkinson PhotoCard is a free app available from the iTunes App store,
that allows you to create custom postcards using Bill's nature photos or your own personal photos, then send them by email or postal mail from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
Bill Atkinson, Mac software legend and world renowned nature photographer, has created an innovative application that redefines
how people create and send postcards.
With PhotoCard you can make dazzling, high resolution postcards on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch,
and send them on-the-spot, through email or the US Postal Service. The app is amazingly easy to use.
To create a PhotoCard, select one of Bill's nature photos or use one of your own personal photos.
Then, flip the card over to type your message. For a fun touch, jazz up your PhotoCard with
decorative stickers and stamps. If you're emailing your card, it can even include an audible greeting.
When you've finished your creation, send it off to any email or postal address in the world!
No frustrations. Simple, intuitive, and fun graphical user interface
No delay. Within minutes of thinking of a friend or family member, you can have your PhotoCard on its way to their mailbox or in their InBox.
Make it postcard-perfect. Use one of the stunning nature photos included with the app, or resize, crop and adjust one of your own newly-taken or existing photos.
Write your message using any available font, size, and style.
Edit in place and get what you see with full-screen page layout.
Decorate PhotoCards with your choice of playful stickers and colorful stamps.
Record voice notes, up to 60 seconds, and include them on emailed PhotoCards.
Sending PhotoCards via email is always free.
If you choose the email format, your recipient will be greeted by a high resolution image of the composite postcard, in either 720 x 960 or 960 x 1280 pixel size.
Having cards professionally printed and mailed to United States addresses costs as little as $1.50 each.
(Print-and-mail credits are discounted if you purchase in quantity.) Cards mailed to International addresses cost as little as $2.25 each.
If you choose the postal mail format, your recipient will receive a real 8.25 x 5.5 inch postcard, printed on a state-of-the-art HP Indigo digital press
and laminated to protect against postal damage.
Bring a world of beauty wherever you go. The included library of Bill's original nature photographs represents some of his finest work.
A limited license to print and send these photos in PhotoCards for non-commercial purposes is included in your purchase.
