2014 Calendar Templates Online

It’s that time of year: for pumpkins, fall foliage and yes, calendar templates. We’ve uploaded the 2014 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 10 different templates, three styles for CD jewel-case-style calendars, two styles of old-style templates, and both portrait and landscape 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 the blog post about the templates: there are tips and screen shots there for creating an awesome, personalized gift.
