Having fun with friends also means making fun of yourself. In this regard and always remaining on the Christmas theme, I strongly suggest you contact Elf Yourselfan Internet site that allows you to create very nice animated virtual postcards for free, transforming us into real dancing elves!

To use it, however, keep in mind that it is essential that it is installed on the computer you use Flash Player (if not, you can fix it immediately by reading my tutorial on how to install Flash Player).

If you prefer, you can also take a photo at the moment by clicking on Use your webcam and using the computer connected webcam.

At the end of the upload of the photo, try to adapt the portrait face as much as possible to the silhouette of the elf making sure that the mouth coincides with the red dotted line, as in the example image on the left. If necessary, you can also zoom and rotate the photo using the buttons on the right. Then press on Next to go to the next step.

And if you have some friends to “elf” (you can enter four in all), you can add their faces to the virtual Merry Christmas card by clicking on the button Another elf? and proceeding in a similar way to what I have just indicated. To complete the postcard creation process and to preview it before sending, you need to click the button instead Let’s dance!..
