Main Tutorial ImageDespite the fact that Apple can quite easily print and send you the calendar you have created, there is something really satisfying about finishing a product off and knowing that you made every aspect of it. If you feel this way then you’d probably much rather assemble the calendar yourself. In order to do this the first thing you will need to do is print it. We would recommend investing in some really good quality photo paper as this will enhance the pictures and the text, not to mention making the finished article feel really good. How you bind your calendar is up to you but no matter how you do it you will need some spare paper available at the top, bottom or sides of the calendar in order to comfortably add the rings, staples or glue that will keep it together. We’ll take you through the steps necessary to get your calendar printed in the best possible fashion and suit the product you want. We’ll also show you how to save it so you can take it to a local printer if that’s a better option for you. Here goes…Header Bar

Step 11: Too obvious?

Select your calendar on the left-hand side of iPhoto and then head to the File menu and select Print. A new screen will pop up with a preview and some settings to alter.

Step 22: Get details

You can flick through each page of the calendar here and also hit Print for a first (draft) copy of the calendar. Click Show Details to see more printing options.

Step 33: Discover

Depending on your printer you will be able to use this drop down to go in and tweak all kinds of printing options. The most important are kept in the Layout section where you can add double-sided printing.

Step 44: Or save it

If you wish to save your calendar use this drop-down menu to select Save as PDF and then a location. You will then be able to take these files to a local printing shop to have the calendar made and bound.
