There are several types of calendars available, all of which can be personalised. You can choose the design of the calendar, add holidays and important dates, and of course choose the images to create a unique product.

Product customization

As with other photo products, when you select a calendar in the Product selection window, you can choose the size and surface material. You can also select the Type of calendar. The monthly calendar displays the days of the week according to the calendar year. The perpetual calendar has no reference to the day of the week or the year and can be used at any time.

Calendar configuration window

In the case of Calendar and Desk Calendar, it is possible to select the Calendar design. The design and it’s colours and styles can be changed later. It is also possible to remove the calendar table by ticking the without calendar table box. Once the calendar has been customised, click on Design.

Design modes

As with Photo Books, it is possible to choose between three different design modes when placing the images on the pages of the calendar:

Calendar design modes

One Minute Calendar creates your calendar automatically and quickly. In this mode, you pre-select the images to be included in the calendar. The software will automatically design and place the images on the pages based on a selected design line and considering the parameters selected for the calendar. The created calendar will be opened in the designer. You will be able to modify all the elements it contains, changing the layout and the design line, as well as adding and removing images, text and objects.

Comfort designer allows you to design your calendar page by page. In this mode, the designer opens the pages without images, just the calendar. As you drag the images onto the pages, the software will suggest where to place them, considering any elements already placed. As in the other modes, you can modify, add and remove as many images and objects as you like. You can also add text and choose different layouts and design lines from the right-hand menu.

Empty template you will need to design the calendar page by page from scratch. As in the Comfort designer, once the Calendar is configured, the product will open in the designer with only the calendar. The software will not make any suggestions when you add images and objects to your pages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different Design modes, please read the Design modes article.


After selecting a design mode, a window for customizing the Calendar appears just before the designer opens.

Calendar customization window

On the left you will see a preview of the calendar with the first month selected by default. It is possible to display a different month by selecting another one from the Preview month box at the bottom. In the right column are the configuration tools divided into two tabs Appearance and Holidays.


At the top of the column are the calendar content options.

  • The Year field allows you to select the calendar year by which the days of each month are organised.
  • The Start month field allows you to select the month in which the calendar begins, which consists of 12 months. For example, if you choose to start your calendar in May 2024, the last month of your calendar will be April 2025. This allows you to create and design your calendar whenever you like.
  • Activating the week numbers box will display the week number of the year in the calendar.
  • The Calendar language field allows you to select the language of the calendar.
  • The Size field allows you to change the size of the calendar and all its contents.

Appearance tab in right menu with calendar options

By default, a colour palette with the previously selected Calendar design is displayed. It is possible to select a different calendar design by expanding the Calendar design field. In this menu, in addition to the different calendar design options, colour themes for each of them are offered for selection.

Underneath are all the tools you need to customize every colour and font in your calendar.

Calendar on the designer

Calendars start with a cover, followed by one page per month. Images are added depending on the design mode chosen and can be modified at any time, just like the rest of the objects.

The calendar can also be modified in the designer. Clicking on the Calendar button in the right column will bring up the calendar configuration tools. Note that the Calendar button is visible on the month pages and will not be visible on the Cover page as there is no calendar there.

Calendar customization options in the designer

From here you can add holidays and configure the appearance of the calendar. The changes you make will apply to the page/month open in the designer. For example, you can choose a different colour for each month. To apply the changes to all months, click on the To all pages button at the top.

Family Calendar

The Family Calendar allows you to have an individual column for each family member, so that each person can add their own dates and events. The layout of the calendar is unique and will vary in size depending on how many family members are added.
