    which one is true?

    Hi dear friends
    I got confused in getting the meaning of the underlined part of the text below.

    In these days of digital photography and high-quality home printers, you can easily create a
    pop-up with your friends and family of your holiday, special occasion, or party.
    Make individual
    pop-up invitations or thank-you cards.

    I got two alternatives but I don't know which one is correct and why. Now I would be grateful if someone helps me understand the sentence and tells me which one is true:

    1. You can easily create pop-ups with pictures of your family and friends in the holidays,....
    2. You can create pop-ups about holidays,... to give or send them to your family and friends for thanking or inviting them.

    In fact I have problems in knowing the function or meaning of the word "with", I think.

    yours

    Hi Hossein
    For me no.1 is in perfect English. You can still use no. 2 and it will be understood but the preposition "about" is not correct.
    It seems your issue is with the prepostions. "with" is correct in this case. Here are some examples.
    You can log on to your computer with a password or with a voice command.
    You can edit photos with photoshop.
    You can take photos with your mobile phone.

    Other prepositions are also possible. In no.1 you could use "from". Perhaps more are possible.

    Hi. and many thanks for your reply.
    But again the problem remains, that is, which understanding is right. In fact:
    1. creating pop-up cards with the pictures of your family and friends

    OR

    2. creating pop-up cards for the members of your family and friend individually and invite them to party or holiday...

    I would be very grateful if other friends also help me.
