Address Book: MAKING YOUR OWN VCARD

I know, I know, you want to be all trendy and hip, so here's how to make your own vCard. (Note: The first step in being trendy and hip is not to use the 1970s word “hip.”) Here's how: First, set up your own personal card the way you want it, then go under the Card menu and choose Make This My Card. This will change the icon for your personal contact to a silhouette of a person rather than a square photo icon, letting you know which card is “your card.” If you've got a lot of contacts and want to get to your card fast, choose Go to My Card from the Card menu. If you want to email your card to somebody (to show you're trendy and that other thing), first choose Go to My Card from the Card menu, then go under the File menu and choose Export vCard. Save your vCard file (I save mine right to my desktop), then send it as an attachment to any Mail message. You can also drag-and-drop your card's silhouette icon right from Address Book onto Apple's Mail icon in the Dock, which opens a New Message window with your vCard attached. Or if you're using iChat, you can send your vCard to someone you're chatting with by going under the iChat Buddies menu and choosing Send File.
