How to Make a Calendar


Making a calendar does not have to be a difficult process, it can be done rather easily at any good quality online photo service. These services make the process very simply and guide you step-by-step. The digital images, it’s quick and easy and the end result is a perfect, unique gift. Grandparents especially enjoy receiving these photo calendars of grandchildren, a gift they can enjoy all year long.

The first step is to select the pictures you would like to use. Close ups, scenic, and action shots make the best photos to use. Be sure the quality of the photo is good, although most online photo services will advise you if the picture you try to use is not of a high enough resolution. They take the guesswork out of the equation if you are not familiar with photo resolution, pixels and the like. You will also want to consider the months and decide which pictures you want on which months. Perhaps a good action shot of children sledding for January.

Next find the photo site you would like to use. My personal preference is Shutterfly because I have used it many time, but you can use any one you are comfortable with. All online photo sites have easy upload tools with guide you through the process of uploading your pictures to their website into your own account.

Once your account is set up and your pictures are uploaded, simply go to the sites storefront, choose “create a calendar” and you are almost done. The creation tool will guide you through selecting the pictures to use, how to place them in the appropriate month, and make any adjustments needed. Shutterfly has an online editing tool that allows you to edit the pictures, add borders, change the color, add frames, etc…you can get creative. Name your calendar and choose a cover picture. A collage of all the pictures from every month would make a nice cover. You are done and ready to order as many copies as you need.

In very little time you have created an inexpensive but very personal and unique gift. It’s must better than going to the mall and battling the crowds. Better still, because it is thoughtful and takes some time to make, it’s a gift that will be cherished all year long!
