Looking for a fun way to showcase your favorite photos? Need to get structured for the coming year? We’ve got you covered! You just need to blend your favorite photos with our charming designs to create an alluring and classy photo calendar to rock the new year.

Why Photo Calendar?

As the year 2019 is about to end and so does the remanence of the moments enjoyed this year, our thoughts naturally begin to reflect on the photographs we've clicked during the year. No matter whether it's family snaps or fine art landscapes, creating a photo calendar for 2020 is a far better use of your images than letting them languish on a hard drive somewhere - and they make great gifts too. And, as luck would have it, we've got a great guide to the best photo calendars right here to help you choose which service to use!

1. Select 13 Star Snaps

Pick up 12 of your assorted and high-quality snaps, each one for the corresponding month and a 13th one for the front cover of the calendar. To simply this, even more, decide on a story in your mind prior to selecting and assigning pictures to each month. The choice of the photos being selected depends on the aim in your mind for which you're creating the calendar; motivational, remembrance, or scheduled. You can also set small goals in each month through the photographs

Creating this for yourself? Choose photos of your favorite faces to raise a smile, or photos of your pet (we know you’ve got a lot of them…). If you’re creating this as a gift, you could select photos of faraway places, travels or adventures you’ve been on with this person to offer them a sense of escape from the everyday.

2. Upload and Edit Photos

Once you’ve finalized your photographs, all that’s left to do now is to upload them and edit the calendar’s look. You can change the size and placement of your photo, add or remove clipart, so make sure you’ve got the time to get creative! You can always go for a photo collage, use a big picture as the background or insert small pictures into the month grid cells to mark special days of the year. Add, replace, crop and delete photos that seem out of place using the editing tools. You can add spark to your photos by applying fancy filters or stylish frames.
