NO GO.... same error came up when I went to paint. The error reads "MSpaint has caused error in MFC42DLL. MSpaint will now close". Bummer deluxe!! Got any thoughts?? I really want this to work. Do you think I will have to reinstall all MS programs? Anybody else got a brain blip??? Help!! Losin it... Leigh

Update

I changed the template for the yearly 2003 calendar so it will print more clearly and match the monthly calendars.

Looks good

Thanks Rog - We are working on transferring some stuff off of this computer - I think it has become overloaded. Just reloaded paint program and hopefully will get a chance to try out this weekend. I will get this yet!!!! Happy Turkeys Day! Leigh

Hi all.

If you don't mind my saying so, the .jpg calendar image you uploaded is too compressed to allow enlarging to the size specified. Artifacting is already evident on the small scale image and becomes even more so when enlarged.

Just about any picture publishing program and most paint programs have at least one or more calendar templates available. All you need do is navigate to the program folder and load it up. From there you can add photos, change text, etc. fairly easily.

It helps if you know your program ahead of time but a calendar project is an easy, fun way to learn.

Adding your own photo is easy but understand when you enlarge a bitmapped image (which is what all scanned images are) it becomes pixelated at best, unless it was originally scanned in at a very high dpi (dot per inch) to begin with.

As an alternative, you can also scan the picture larger than you need it, then reduce it to the desired size in your paint program.

Load both images (calendar template from your program) and File>Import your scanned photo into the calendar image.

Have fun!

Just my 2 cents. Anybody got change?

Happy Holi-daze!

Hi CJ

I don't know what "artifacting" means but I've used these same templates to make dozens of calendars for friends and family on my own pc and 2 others. They print out quite clearly for me. The Yahoo site compressed the images to comply with their size restrictions and changing the pixel size to 961x1212 should simply decompress them back to the original template size.
You are quite correct in that there are numerous calendar creating programs available on the market but I simply offered these up as freebies to have some fun with.
BTW, if I might drift off topic a moment, have you ever considered making baseball caps with an Airstream theme to go along with your great tees? I'm thinking something like this would be nice,
although this particular design would probably violate the copyright laws:

nice lids

But if I were going to market AS hats, would I offer them in silver or just SOB colors.........hmmm
I wonder how well Inland Andy's candy would sell if he wrapped it in other than silver.
