How-To: Create A Personalized Photo Calendar
Video Tutorial – Designing a Photo Calendar
Treat yourself or your loved ones with our photo calendars! From the elegant wall calendar Panorama, to the practical family calendar, or monthly planner - we show you how you can create your own individual photo calendar. With just a few clicks on our website, turn your most beautiful pictures into a useful calendar.
Choosing a photo calendar on the ifolor website
Start designing your photo calendar directly on our website. Whether you want to decorate your own home or give the calendar as a present to somebody – you can choose between monthly planners, kitchen calendars, family calendars and classic wall calendars. Once you’ve picked a type of calendar, you can select different sizes, formats and paper qualities.
Sort your pictures before you start designing. If most of your pictures are portrait photos, a portrait orientation is most suitable. Landscape shots are best showcased in a horizontal format or a panorama calendar.
Design options for your customized photo calendar
Get creative! Depending on which photo calendar you’ve picked, you can then select your favourite design from our templates. Simple as well as more colourful designs are available. You have more than 12 favourite pictures? Simply click on the button “Layout type” and select a design from our collage templates.
Once you’ve chosen a format and design, you can upload your pictures in the next step. You can upload pictures directly from your hard drive or alternatively access your Facebook or OneDrive account. Simply insert the pictures into the empty placeholders via drag and drop. By clicking the symbol for “edit”, you can adjust the size and position of your pictures. You can alter the layout and design of your photo calendar at any time during the design process.
You can also use our ifolor Designer to design your photo calendar. Simply download it free of charge and discover a huge choice of templates and designs. The Designer app encourages creativity with the freely placeable picture and text fields. You can create your own layouts, insert clipart, speech bubbles, and even add personal events such as birthdays and anniversaries.
You can customise your calendar to start at any time of the year (e.g. June to May). Simply set any start month under the ‘Calendar’ tab and create a gift suitable for any tome of the year! There you can also select the language for your calendar.
Before ordering your personalized photo calendar from ifolor, review your calendar with the “preview”-option. Empty placeholders as well as problem with your texts and poor image quality will be pointed out to you. After fixing any remaining errors, you can add your photo calendar to the shopping basket and complete your order.
Family calendar or a monthly planner: individually decorate your calendar
As a practical tool, the family calendar and the monthly planner keep you organised in everyday life. Both offer you space to write notes and appointments. You can add birthdays, anniversaries, and long-term appointments by using text fields when you create your calendar. To make them stand out even more, you can customise them with clipart or small photos.
Have fun designing and enjoy your personalised gift!
