Making your own Print Calendar has never been easier

In today’s episode, brought to you thanks to Judy, we are making calendars with your images. Don’t worry, we have made it very easy for you. All of the templates have already been made, all you have to do is DOWNLOAD them, and place your images. Tomorrow we are going to actually build the calendar and show you what to do when each month is over!

Introducing LensRentals.com

Phlearn has partnered with LensRentals.com to bring you discounts on renting lenses! This is a special deal for you to show our gratitude. The discount code is included in every Phlearn PRO Photohop Tutorial. If you have been thinking about buying a lens, renting it first is a great option. If you don’t like the lens as much as you thought you would, you just saved a ton of money by not buying it!

Walgreen’s Coupon

If you decide to go with Walgreens, they are offering a 50% off coupon ALL50 through Dec.17.

UPDATE!
I just picked up my prints from Walgreens. They were really helpful, and did trim them for me. The prints came out dark, be sure to lighten yours a little, and check the box on their site that says “Do not Auto Correct”

    random thing to add here, as i watch the episode, but i always find the model you used for the snow photo ( December) looks like Rachel McAdams!! :)

    I think this is great and can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode, but i am wondering why not just make the calendar fit an 8×10 format instead of having to cut it.

  • Tanner

    I was wondering that myself as well…. ?

  • http://phlearn.com Aaron Nace

    totally, you could do that as well. I was thinking it would be great to have a 5×7 at the top with no borders :)

  • Judy

    Awesome calendar templates, Aaron!!  Thank you so much!! 

  • Jeremy Cupp

    Lens rentals is right down the street from my house! Awesome quality company. Great people.

    Hey Aaron thanks for the calendar, but one small request. Can you switch the margin over to the left instead of the right sight? I want to be able to bind them into a book type. thanks again. cheers.

  • Dennis “Fotoguru”

    I can’t wait for the new reotuch techniques you found. Yesterday I spend 2 hours also experimenting with “other” techniques than my usual ones.

    BTW, this was my first comment. Yay!

    Hey Aaron,

    When I tried out my 300 prime, I first rented it from Lens Rentals… Tey were awesome and VERY helpful and supportive

    Damn I wish I lived in the states so I could use that Lensrental discount… :(

    I have been making calendars for years for Xmas but normally put the photos on those DIY calendars… I prefer yours though :D

    Hey, this lensrentals.com looks really cool! I’ll have to try them!

  • http://www.facebook.com/berniharrisphotography berni

    this episode is really cool, but how do we create our own templates? It might be really easy, but i haven’t done it before and have no idea where to start? companies like design aglow sell al lsorts of templates to save time and it’d be great just to know how its done!
