Make Your Own 2010 Calendar in Photoshop

I just got a calendar file (.psd) from my friend, oh2004 from thaidphoto, and I already used it to create unique calendars. So I would like to share how to create your own 2010 calendars by using this calendar file. Not only for your own 2010 calendar, but you can also create nice and unique 2010 calendar for your friends, family, etc. Moreover, you can create the calendar for selling as well. Anyway, before I go over into details, I would like to show before/after images as shown below.

8. You may see that layer named “January” is so small because my photo is very large. I am not worried about this problem because my layer “January” is text which I can expand as big as I want.

9. Use free transform command (Edit>Free Transform) to expand size of text until you are satisfied with overall size. What’s more, you can add effect into the text such as dropping shadow, blending layer, etc.

  1. Hi,

    It’s great to learn how to make my own calendar. By the way, could you please send to me a copy of the water fall image in this tutorial? I like it very much but the size of this image is a bit small when I save as desktop background.

    Thank you very much for your tutorial and your time.

    Best regards
    Helen Chen
