Top 5 Websites for Free Graduation ECards

Know someone who’s graduating this year? Whether your friend or loved one is graduating from middle school, high school or college, show them how proud you are of their accomplishments by sending a free graduation eCard. eCards are easy, fun and are great do-it-yourself (DIY) mini-projects.

With the rising popularity of eCards, there are many websites from which to choose. After sifting through many of these websites, I’ve compiled a list of the top 5 places to find great free graduation eCards – without the hassle of “free trials”.

  1. Hallmark.com
    The Hallmark name is a staple in the card industry, so it only makes sense that they’ve expanded into the eCard market. Hallmark has many graduation eCards, most of which are free. They offer a plethora of options including flash, interactive and photo slideshow cards. You can find humorous or more sentimentally themed cards. Sending a card is easy – simply choose the design you like, personalize it with a message and pictures (if it’s a slideshow), enter your name and email address, the recipient’s name and email address and hit send. You can choose to send the eCard immediately or choose a date in the future. One of my favorites is the hoops&yoyo graduation card titled “You Graduated!”.
  2. Smilebox
    If you’re looking to send an eCard that is almost completely DIY, this might be the place for you. With Smilebox, you don’t actually create anything online, you download their safe and free software which has hundreds of graduation templates

Google Snaps Photo Editing Web Site

March has seen Google quietly move forward in its quest to control the world (or at least the Internet) as it acquired the image editing Web site Picnik. This is actually not too surprising considering Google's dedication to productive Web applications.

Picnik allows users to modify photos and other images online without requiring the installation of software like Photoshop.

Not much in the way of details about Google's deal for Picnik are known yet. Some analysts expected that Yahoo! Would be after Picnik since the service is already integrated into its Yahoo! Mail service. Seeing that Picnik is easily integrated into mail services, it's reasonable to expect the new acquisition to find its way into Gmail, although it's unclear what form that service will take.
