Hey guys.

Ok so I made this Eid card. Basically I took several photos of different objects and combined them into one card but i'm thinking maybe it'll be better to have individual photos on cards or if this is ok, what shall I add in text? And should I get rid of the black on the edge.?

Do you think these photos should be switched around on the card or are they ok where they are?

I was thinking of popping a brief Eid message in the blank blurred space in the center.

Thanks in advance folks :)

Pardon my lack of culture, but I had to google EID Card.

It looks thrown together, and some of the shots look too similar. Maybe having the card portrait style and only having 3 images like this it would look less cluttered and help you get your message across better. Your photos are beautiful but having them all slapped together doesn't do them justice.

Try something like this, looks less cluttered and your photos will look much better. Hope this helps

Hiya. Thanks for working on it, looks nicer like that.

Basically I decided to just make individual photo cards. A6 size with one photo on the whole front and a tiny eid message.

Too many photos do look cluttered I realised that the hard way :(
