To use Paint.net, click on the site's toolbar and then click on Image. Next, select Canvas and reset its size to 5.5 X 3.5. Now, use the toolbox to select Layers and then Import From File. This allows you to choose an image from your computer for the QSL card. If the image fails to re-size to the card, select Image on the toolbar and then re-size it. To create a rectangle for relevant QSL info, select the Rounded Rectangle Tool from the toolbox. Change colors by selecting Window in the toolbar and clicking on Colors, and add relevant text by using the program's text tool. Save the finished project and then print it on card stock to complete the process.

To use the Radio QTH site, simply provide all of the information you want on your card. Information prompts include your name, call sign and contact information. Click on Choose File to select a custom image for your QSL card. Use the MISC box to input any information you wish to share that is not included in the pre-made prompts and then click Create QSL Card to receive a PDF you can print on card stock.
