Fun Digital Photo Calendars

Sep 4, 2008
Do you sometimes wonder what to do with all of you digital photos? If you're like me you probably have them stored away on your computer's hard drive seldom to be seen by anyone. There is a fun and unique way to see them every dayyou can turn those simple 'photos' into a one-of-a-kind, customized digital photo calendar.

To be realistic, not every photograph is worth a thousand words, but those that are, are priceless. These are the photos that you find yourself wanting to pull out every now and then to remember a special moment or to share with others. You can create a special way to have them available to show off to friends and family.

It is only natural to want to share your good times with others. Part of the fun in reliving these moments through snapshots is getting to share them with friends and family. But how can you do this, and what is the best way?

One very fun and unique way is by creating a simple digital photo calendar. Don't take the words "digital photo calendar" too literally though. In this case we're talking about turning the idea of a regular wall calendar into one-of-a-kind work of art using your own photos.

In other words... a 'photo calendar' which you can then print up, give to your friends or family, hang on your wall, promote across the Internet, sell on your website or photo blog, (or even on eBay), etc...

Let's try out building one of these fun little photo calendars for ourselves.

Here's what you do.

To begin, simply pick out some of your favorite photos to be included in our project. Next involves a little bit of research, but I've done a bit of that to help you save some time and make things easier for you. Here are some places where you can easily transform your digital photos into a photo calendar

Check out a few of the websites that will do this for you: www.bighugelabs.com, www.desktopwallpaperphotos.com, www.snapfish.com and www.cafepress.com. The first two listed can give you a free digital version of your calendar that you can download to your hard drive and then print out or save to a CD/take to a print shop. The others provide a 'real' wall or desk calendar that you can purchase and then 'send' to yourself, or even a friend.

Knowing which website to use is probably the hardest thing to figure out and decide on when turning your "plain" photos into a calendar. The rest is actually pretty simple although you do need to have at least a working knowledge of how to prepare your photos before printing. There are plenty of programs, tutorials and guides that can help you accomplish this. If all else fails, get someone to help you if it proves too challenging or if you just don't have the time.

Only a few more simple steps from here...

1) Upload your photo/s to one of the photo calendar web sites above.

2) Select a particular calendar size and other details

3) Settle on a month and a year you want your calendar to have

d) then hit the 'create' button or order your own calendar...

Simple, eh? Once you've done all that then you'll have yourself an enjoyable photo calendar that you can then download onto your hard drive as a .PDF, or maybe a jpeg image file... Or, if you're 'outsourcing' the printing, you can expect to receive your calendar in a week or so...

But overall, not too bad for a few minutes work!

Now you can take your digital photo calendar masterpiece out to impress friends and family. Be creative with it and print it out on a card, e-mail it to everyone, or just hang it on your wall for your own enjoyment. Photo calendars make a great gift and every time someone looks at it they will be reminded of you and be able to share in your special memories.
