2015 Photo Calendar Preview and How To Create Your Own

Since 2009, I have been creating photo calendars to give away as gifts. Truthfully, I considered giving up the practice last year because I felt I didn't have sufficient material. But each December rolls around and my sister inevitably queries me on "when her new calendar would be arriving", which prompts me to open up my catalog of photos. The creative juices start flowing and within two hours, I've culled through, picked and created the upcoming year's calendar.

The process is very simple and I wrote up this Tutorial a couple years ago: How to Create a 4x6 Photo Calendar

The upcoming year's Calendar Templates can be found at Photoshop Elements Techniques, which is a great resource for all things PSE, including free brushes, textures and of course, 2015's Calendar Templates

Once I create the calendar files, I have a "proof" set printed at the local Walgreen's, where I make sure there are no spelling errors, that the dates aren't cut off (yes, that has happened) and the photos look good. Final adjustments are made before I upload to my normal photo finisher, MPIX.com.

Here is a sneak peak of 2015's calendar - January will be posted later this week for you to download and use on your computer desktop.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas - we had a great one here and are looking forward to the coming New Year.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Shirley. And, always, thank you for your inspiration and generosity.

This is such a great idea! My family loves my husband's photography, and I think they would love this as a gift. I bet this way is cheaper than doing it through Shutterfly too.
