Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a calendar, part of Learning Photos for OS X.
- One of things that I like about making my own calendar…is I can start it on any month that I want.…And, we can do that in Photos for OS X.…I'm gonna walk you through the process right here.…I'm in an album and so, as I like to do,…I've created an album of images…right here, called Sierra Calendar.…Now, I can play around with the order here, in the album,…Photos won't honor that when it goes to make the calendar,…but at least it allows me to kind of work it out…in my mind, how I want things.…
And then, once I'm ready to go,…then I just go to Create Calendar,…like this.…And I can create a calendar that's 12 months or 24 months,…we'll go with 12 months but I'm gonna start it in June.…And then, when I hit Continue, I get to pick the theme…and, see this right here?…Apple added a new theme…and it's in the cloud so I can download that.…
My sense is it will continue to do that,…and we'll have more and more things to choose from.…I'd probably go for a picture calendar…and then Create Calendar.…Now, once I do that, I get a project,…
