Open the Program and Choose a Calendar Template

If you just don’t like any of the calendar template preset in the program, you are able to get the additional calendar template pack. You will finally find one you like.

Customize the Photo Calendar Page

After choosing a calendar template, the first thing is to set the page size. With Picture Collage Maker Pro, you can customize your page size at will. Click the Collage, Collage Panel Setting successively and you can set the width and height of your custom calendar manually. Click OK to apply the page size to your photo calendar.

In addition, customize the photo calendar page with a background in your own style. Click Background Setup option under the Collage, you will be given two options to set the background: Color Fill and Image. If you want to set your own image as background, click Load button. In the popup window, click Import Pattern to choose an image and click OK.

Add Photo and Other Elements

When comes to add photo to calendar, you can double click the photo frame to choose the right photo or simply drag and drop the photo from the photo list at the left of the window. Then, change the clipart, frame or mask from the left corresponding list. If you need, you can also add a shape object into the photo calendar.

Write your text and set the text font, color, background, orientation and other properties freely. After all settings have been done, click OK.

Change the Calendar to 2015 Instead of 2014

Instead of one page layout for the entire year, I’d love to show you how to make a monthly calendar with 12 pages. Delete the calendar object on the template, and add a new one by clicking Add Calendar under the Add option to add the January calendar to the first page. You can adjust properties of the photo calendar as well. It seems to be a secret that the right triangle icon at the top of the popup window can change the year of the calendar to any year you want, no matter to 2014, 2015 or 2016.

Once the first page of January calendar 2015 is made, continue to make the other eleven pages. Click Add Page icon to add a new page for February, March, April, etc. Then, edit these pages in the same way as doing it in the January page. You can easily copy and paste some of the elements from one page to another page.

Print the Photo Calendar

After all the twelve pages are well done, click Print under Share option. Preview these pages in the print window and make settings for print out. Once all settings are made, print these monthly photo calendar layouts out at a time.
