    Most of you have probably seen my Kage Bunshin Photos (and if you haven't and you like what you see here click here) and I was thinking giving out some custom cards to some of my college friends. Here is what I have so far.

    Choice a)...................Choice b)...................Choice b)


    Choice c)...................Choice c)...................Choice d)

    Please tell me which one you find the most pleasing to the eye. And if it isn't too much trouble, please comment on things you would change (especially what the text says on the top or its font) or errors you find. Just don't suggest chaning "Merry Christmas" to "Happy Holidays" because I am not going to do that (for crying out loud I am wearing a Santa hat).

    I would choose a. It is much more radiant than the rest.
    Some tips :
    Add a cool border, it will add a lot to the card.
    Remove that damn 5 px or something border around the writing, it will look a LOT better.

    Definitely remove the red stroke, or at least lower the opacity on it.
    I'm not too fond of the yellow glow either, but it does add something to the picture - maybe you should replace it with something else that has the same qualities?

    I think i like the colours in c best.

    I concur with everyone. A is the best. Tone down the red stroke though, and make it smaller. I think it should be there just not so...obvious.

    I prefer version D, maybe add a few 'lines' and a bit 'dirt' to make it look a bit older.

    None, only because of the font. I would take a other font...but if you want to let the font like it is...than a

    Any tips as to how I would do that (and make it look good)?

    I am also working on some of the other sugestions. Since I don't know how to change a poll and people have only voted for a & d, I am goint to replace b & c with simular styles of a & d.

    EDIT: Added the new pics in the original post, so all comments above this one refure to the stricked out c.

    Yeah, this might work.
    Filters - effect - canvas ... IIRC.
    And ofcourse i'd add a mild brown gradient map @ low opacities too (layers->new adjustment ... -> gradient map -> brown "pastel").... it'll make it look better.

    I'm not a big fan of the typo... or better said, the font. ( )

    I'd say B, it has a very good Christmas feel to it.
