2013 calendar templates online

By Rick LePage  ·  October 9th, 2012

The 2014 calendar template are available here.

It’s that time of year: for pumpkins, fall foliage and yes, calendar templates. We’ve uploaded the 2013 calendar files for one of our longtime reader-favorite articles, “Quick and Easy Calendars from Templates,” which originally ran in the November/December 2009 issue of Photoshop Elements Techniques. This year’s set has 11 different templates, including a triplet-style (for quarterly calendar pages), three styles for CD jewel-case-style calendars, an old-style template, and both portrait- and landscape-oriented templates. We’ve also included the Photoshop Elements page template for the jewel case.

You can download the templates via this link. Just save the ZIP file on your computer, and double-click it (or use a utility like WinZip) to decompress it. The instructions in the article show you some ideas for creating your own calendar pages, but essentially, all you need to do to add a month to an Elements document is use the File > Place command, navigate to the PDF template you would like to use, open it and choose the month from the ‘Place PDF’ dialog box that follows. Click OK, and it will put the month into your document on a new layer as a Smart Object.

Once you’ve placed your month, you can resize it, move it and apply other adjustments to it as desired. And, because it’s a Smart Object, you can continue to resize it until you have it just the way you’d like it to be. Note that some versions of Photoshop Elements place the template page at a pretty large size on-screen. You might have to use Ctrl– (Mac: Command–) [that’s the ‘minus’, or ‘dash’ key on your keyboard] to change the Zoom view so that you can resize the page template.

If you’d like help with the jewel case template, check out last year’s blog post about the templates: there are tips and screen shots there for creating an awesome, personalized gift.

    Thanks, I make tons of calendars every year (usually using wendy’s templates :( ) and I always look forward to them. They do make great thank you gifts.

    Thanks again,

    Thanks Rick, this gave me an idea for the folks I work with and a Christmas present. I will make them some calendars with my images from 2012.

    I need an “all on one page” 2013 template. Will it be available soon?

    I was so happy to see this and to do calendars. I am going to make them as family gifts. But I had a big problem. I did them doing the Frames & Projects method where you Edit>Add Page Using Current Document and I had them all done except December. I am sure you can tell where this is going. My program froze and the only way I could get it to go was to do a Ctrl-Alt-Delete which means that everything was gone. Is there any possible thing that I don’t know. Perhaps my pages may have been saved somewhere that I am not aware of.
    Hopefully there is a magic solution to this and I do not have to start again.

    These are great. Any chance that there’s a December 2012 square format out there in the same font as the 2013 square. I’d like to look back and forward on my Jan.2013 page.

      Your reply is good news but I can’t locate the link to Wendy’s single page template for 2013.
      Where can I find it?

    First off i really like the template choices, they look great and have inspired me to give calendar making a try. However, I’m in the dark about how to get file printed. Do I transfer the file and take it to Staples or similar ? I don’t think my printer is up to the task. Am also interested in different paper stock. Also are there a number of website offering to put all this together, do you have any recommendations ? Any help is appreciated

    Thanks for offering these – they are wonderful! I was hoping to get a jump start on my calendar project this year, but I have found that NO ONE offers anything close to these. So I will patiently wait and look forward to the release of the 2014 templates :-)
