A Very Happy New Year to all you photographers! May you be happy doing whatever you do – whether it be at work or for fun!
I am sure at least some of you are contemplating making a calendar for 2017. Here is a simple way to get your images into a calendar.
Screen shot below:
I made a special folder of the 12 images I wanted to use – remember that each image cannot be more than 2MB each or it will not upload.
2MB is more than sufficient for this purpose. My 8.5 x 11 inches calendar came out gorgeous!
Simply upload images from this folder, a month at a time and print.
Don’t forget to change each month. Also before going to the next month, I saved each document (File > save as) for future printing (your family is quite likely to ask for prints). But remember this is web based.
If you don’t like that “Calendar generated at Calendarlabs.com“ at the bottom right, then save the document as a screen shot. Next open this in Photoshop. Select portions of this and paste on a blank document. Add your own image and refine to taste before printing. I am OK giving them the credit – after all the templates aren’t mine.
Now if you don’t want to go through all this let me know – I have done all this and saved my 12 pages as JPEGs. You can have all these. Simply open each in PS and superimpose your image on mine (drag and drop – you can then adjust the handle bars to exactly cover my image with yours! (don’t worry , I am not offended).
If you want to be adventurous, you can go to their main website and choose from other options.
Here are some of the images I used for my own calendar
Happy shooting in 2017 – see you soon
