[prMac.com] London, England - Pixaria Software today announced a major update to PopCard.me, the free email greetings cards website offered as a replacement for Apple's defunct iCards service. The updated PopCard.me website now boasts integration with Flickr to offer visitors a broader range of fun images and has improved email support to better guard against greeting card messages being treated as spam.
By tying in to Flickr's powerful 'interestingness' algorithm, which is able to automatically identify noteworthy images, PopCard.me now presents visitors with a continually changing selection of photos which can be quickly turned into stylish email postcards and mailed to up to five recipients.
For people wanting to explore the full range of Flickr images, PopCard.me also includes a search utility to help visitors find photos on the Flickr website. Typing in a word or phrase quickly returns up to 24 Creative Commons licensed images, all sorted by 'interestingness' and ready to use to create an email greeting card.
With a selection of font styles and card templates to suit different photograph sizes, cards sent from PopCard.me look great and display exactly as you write them, directly in the recipient's e-mail inbox. PopCard also fully supports all the major email clients and webmail services such Outlook and Gmail to guarantee your card arrives looking its best.
For the technically minded, the PHP software which powers the PopCard.me website - PopCard 3.1 - is also available as a free download from Pixaria Software making it easy for anyone with a suitable web server and a little experience with PHP, to quickly and easily add email greeting cards to their own website.
PopCard is available as a free download from the Pixaria Software website and support is provided via the Pixaria user forums.
