Yes... but you must have a tool that will work with them.
... Actually, just thinking about it, there's not much to change in this template... the DJ name, location, and member number, then you add your picture or art work. In the template, the tab is resizable, but you could do pretty much everything you'd need to do in Microsoft Word if you had JPG's of the background, tab, and red balloon. I'll put those in a Word Doc and post those in my Dropbox as well.

GIMP is an awesome open source tool for graphics. Available on Windows and Mac.

That should work... I haven't used it in years, but it had some good capabilities. I just realized, you can't really use JPG's except for the background, because only PNG's can have transparent backgrounds, rounded corners, and such. I tried to make a trading card in Word, and it just didn't work. I'll try PhotoShop next, and if that works, I'll save the template in a PhotoShop project.

I've been told that I'm a tool .. does that count?
I don't think so.:) You would need an application that allows you to layer .PNG files, JPG's, and text. Apparently, not that easy. I tried Corel Paint Shop Pro, and it would not recognize the separate PNG's inside the Template, so it looked just like a single JPG file. Maybe GIMP or Photo Shop would work, but I don't have a copy of Photo Shop anymore. I think I'll just separate the PNG's and zip 'em into a file, and put it in my Dropbox for others to retrieve.

Yea, but it's the same face !!
Yep... Unfortunately, if I made a NEW version of the face, it would look OLDER than the one I used in that Trading Card...☹

There's some FUNNY stuff in this thread... I had forgotten about some of it. Your 1983/2018 cards... and the posts where azdeejay changes his avatar to a photo of himself. That was hillarious![emoji1]

Whose would you suggest?:-/
Well, mine can be had for a nominal cost. And I bet Taso's would increase your sales exponentially ... and Mix's, well, what's the opposite of exponentially ?
