Add Images to Your Cards

Sometimes a picture is just better – or a diagram, chart or photograph. With StudyMinder Flash Cards you can easily add images from any source – your own photos or any that you can find on the web.

StudyMinder Flash Cards Insert Image screenThere is no need to use a separate image processing program. With just a few clicks, you can do all this with StudyMinder Flash Cards’ built-in image editing features:

  • Crop your images to remove unwanted areas
  • Flip and rotate
  • Scale images to exactly the size you want to fit your card
  • Sharpen your images to remove blurriness and improve print quality

Once inserted into a flash card, you can add your own text above and below the image.


Print Your Flash Cards

StudyMinder Flash Cards lets you print your finished flash cards on any printer. Don’t have any index cards? No problem. You can print your flash cards - 8 per page - on standard 8.5” x 11” paper and cut out the cards.

If you do have index cards on hand, they work too. Both 3x5 and 4x6 card sizes are supported.

  • Print preview lets you see your cards before printing
  • Print on letter size paper and cut out your finished flash cards
  • Print on 3x5 index cards
  • Print on 4x6 index cards
  • Print to a file that you can email to others, which they can print and use without the StudyMinder Flash Cards program


Organize and Study Your Flash Cards

If you’d rather not print out your flash cards to study them, it’s not required. You can easily manipulate your flash cards on screen, as if you were holding them in your hands. Even better, your electronic flash cards won’t get bent, folded or lost.

  • Use your mouse to drag flash cards anywhere in the edit window
  • Click the Q/A icon on each flash card to flip it over to the other side (or use the Ctrl-F key to flip)
  • Use the Zoom feature to make them bigger or smaller
  • Drag the flash cards into one of five colored card boxes to organize them into groups


The Leitner Method of Flash Card Study

StudyMinder Flash Cards supports the Leitner Method of flash card study, a simple and effective technique to increase the speed at which you learn the information on your flash cards.

StudyMinder Flash Cards Leitner Card BoxesHere’s how it works. Next to the flash cards edit window are five colored boxes, numbered 1 through 5. The number on each box lets you know how many cards it holds. All new cards you make start in Box 1.

Click through each of your cards and quiz yourself, just as you would if you were holding a set of printed flash card. Pick a card, guess at the answer and then flip it over. If you are correct, drag the card into Box 2. If wrong, the card goes back into Box 1. When you are finished, the more difficult cards will be in Box 1, and the easier ones in Box 2.

Now go through the cards in each box again. When cards in Box 2 are answered correctly, move them to Box 3. If you answer incorrectly, drag that card back into Box 1 and start over again. Continue at your own pace until you have moved all the flash cards into Box 5.

The Leitner Method ensures that you review difficult cards more frequently than easier ones. This is the fastest way to learn all of them with the least amount of study. When all the cards are in Box 5, you should know them quite well.

StudyMinder Flash Cards has many features designed specifically for taking advantage of the Leitner Method of flash card study.

  • Each card has an icon at the top left that shows you the side you are looking at: “A” for the Answer side or “Q” for Question side. Click the icon to flip the card. The color of the icon matches the color of the box that card is currently stored in.
  • Select the “Put away all cards” command to move all cards back into their current boxes
  • Double click any box to take out all the cards in that particular box
  • Additional commands let you Stack, Cascade or Scramble the cards
  • When you save your card set to a file, the locations of each card are also saved, so you can come back and continue your studies right where you left off.


Need a Hint?

StudyMinder Flash Cards has additional features to help you review your cards and make studying more fun. When you select the “Show Study Buttons” you can do more than just guess at the answers.

StudyMinder Flash Cards True/False buttonClick the True/False button to flip the card over. The answer shown may be correct, or it may be the answer from a different card. Press the “T” or “F” key to indicate your answer. The program will tell you if answered correctly.

StudyMinder Flash Cards Hangman buttonClick the Hangman button to play a game of hangman. The letters in the answer are revealed as you type them in.

StudyMinder Flash Cards Exact Answer buttonOr, you can click the Exact Answer button, and then type in the answer exactly. This test feature is ideal for studying spelling and vocabulary words.

StudyMinder Flash Cards Peek buttonYou can also click the Peek icon. The card will flip over with the answer hidden. Press any key to reveal one letter a time. Letters are uncovered in random order. Clicking the Esc key when you think you know the answer will display all the letters. The Peek feature is especially useful for studying foreign language words and phrases, since entering these characters from the keyboard may require multiple keystrokes.

"This is the best study aid I have ever used. I just love that you can choose the type of testing mode that you like best. After trying 3 of them I know the information I was trying to learn and I am off to learn something else. It’s really a great program and a great value for your money."

Thanks again, Kathy
