    D. Detailed Design Template Setting

  •  Character change

        When changing text, Double click the text box and type over
       the default text in the content box.

Using character and object properties, you can change font design, size and color.

In addition, filling text box and change position are available by adjusting option values or keyboard.

•  Image change & insert

In the student ID card template, if you want to change the photo image,

Simply right-side click on the mouse or
Move to [Drawing] and click the [Image] icon on the top.

When you click the image icon, you can set your photo size, as shown below.


Sometimes, you don’t have the correct photo size file.

In that case, just click the [Auto portrait button] to [True]
SmartID will automatically size your photo.

Adding your company’s logo is done the same way:

•  Insert & modify the shape

You may want to add a new element by using a shape and line.

•  Barcode insert

Smart ID has two barcode options: 1D and 2D Barcode

Select the barcode type you need and simply input the serial data/number
on the pop-up box.

To add a QR Code, select 2D QR code in the barcode settings and then adjust its size. 

•  Object orders change

Do you know how to stack text in the filled shape?

Sometimes, you may need to highlight your student name or company symbol.
In that case, you can do so using shape and text.

However, when you make a new filled shape, you may notice that your text disappears.

There are four ways to do so:


•  Modify background image

To change background color or image, simply click the [option]
and, you will see the changing color and image setting.

Keep in mind that background-size is a default value,

So, adjusting background image size is disabled.


•  Print setting & Print

Before printing a card, double check to be sure your printer settings are correct:


There are some key printer functions you can manually control on printing sections:

                    [Ribbon options / Printing speed / Color sense / Color correction]

All setting values at  "Advanced "  listed below will slightly change the printer’s output. 

It’s worth spending some time optimizing the settings to find the right color, chrome and mode for your business or brand.

Last, click the [print icon], then you eventually get your own Photo ID Card.
