Creating Photo Calendars On Your Mac

You can create calendars in the Photos app that use your photos as the pictures. You can customize each month to include one or more photos, plus captions. You can also specify the items to be included on each date by using your own calendars. When done, you can order the calendars from Apple or print them yourself.

    Thanks Gary – brilliant as usual! Never used iPhoto because I always processed in Photoshop and stored in folders. Who needed the confusion of iPhoto?

    But I recently decided to create a calendar (in iPhoto), submitted it last Sunday and it arrived on Thursday(!) – and the quality is amazingly good.

    But never having used iPhoto or Photos I’m confused. What’s the difference? Do you have a post that explains them?

    Mikey: iPhoto was a photo management app that Apple produced from 2002 to 2015. In 2015 Apple replaced it with a completely new app, called simply Photos. There are similarities, of course, since they both have similar functions. But iPhoto is obsolete and discontinued. Photos is the app supported now and Apple has been updating and improving it regularly.

    I just created a calendar after watching your video. I wouldn’t even have thought of trying before watching the video, so thanks! The only question I have is why did I only have the option to add a label on one of the pages? I understand there’s no room on full page photos, but it only offered a text box on the first of the pages with borders. I noticed you didn’t add any labels on your sample in the video. I used a layout similar to the one you used.

    Ignore my previous question. I just noticed a small line in one of the layout photo options and discovered that it’s the one with the ability to add a label.

    I created a calendar and when I received it – I noticed the Month and year text is very small on each page. It’s almost too small to read. I contacted Apple and was told that it was created that way by me. I asked how and was told “There is a chance you may have moved the days up slightly making the next default areas under the bottom right date.” What does that mean? I tried to tart over and it happened again.

    JoAnn: I’m with you. I don’t see how you could have done that. You can do things with the pictures, but you can’t really move the text on the calendar itself around.
