How to Send Your e-Card through Microsoft Outlook

  • 1.  Save the zip file attached to the email we send you of your final thumbnail to your computer. Unzip the file and you will find a jpg of the thumbnail image and an mp4 of the video.

  • 2. Inside the e-mail body you are making, insert the jpg thumbnail image, that you saved to your computer, by uploading it through the picture icon in the tools under the ‘Insert’ tab. Once you can see it inserted in your message. You can resize the image by clicking on it and dragging a corner smaller or larger.

  • 3. Click on the image with your mouse. A blue stroke will appear around it. In the tools upper bar, under the tab ‘Insert’, you’ll find the option ‘Hyperlink’. Click on that icon. You can also right click on the image and choose the “Hyperlink” option.

  • 4. A new window will ask you for the destination the link will take the viewer to. Locate the bottom text bar called Address, and type the URL link that we will provide you with. Ignore everything else in the window and click ‘OK’. You can find the URL of your ecard by returning back to final thumbnail email we have sent you and clicking on the thumbnail image. Once the new page has opened to your video you will find the URL at the top of the page. It will start with https://ecards.vividgreetings.com/

  • 5. The image will now be linked to our e-card. You won’t be able to test it while typing the message, so send yourself a test to see if the end product works to your satisfaction.
