Customizing your cards can surely make an extra visual impact on your collection. You can customize your card images by adding a video or animated effects like glow, blur, shine, etc.
We currently have two different image configurations for a card:
- Card image: The image of the card that everyone can see in your collection. It must be a JPG, PNG, or a GIF if you want it to be animated.
- Alert configuration: It determines what users will see on stream when that card is played. It can be an image (JPG, PNG, or GIF) or a video. The most used files for video are mp4 and WebM.
You can also create a card with our card creator, but it still has some limitations, as the card creator doesn't work with animated images. It only takes the first frame of the animation, so you will not be able to create an animated image with it. However, you can download the desired template by right-clicking on the image that appears in the card creator and then on “Save image as…”
You will need third-party software in order to create an animated image. You can use Photoshop, GIMP, or any software you are familiar with. Each software has its own way to create animations, so you may need to do some research on how to do it.
Remember, there are online tools that allow you to convert videos to animated GIF images and much more.
