Wallpaper: Calendars

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I often lose track of the days in the month when it is summer time and I’m just puttering around the house. It’s different when I’m in school and have deadlines. I also have lost both my calendar and calculator application on my computer, and I’ve been much too lazy to figure out why. Now I can make wallpaper that have a calendar using this fantastic application!

There are several ways to select an image to use as the wallpaper. You can upload it directly from your computer, pull it off your Flickr or Photo Bucket account, or put in the URL of the image you’d like to use.

Once you’ve selected the image for your wallpaper, you can start designing how it will look. First, select the size you want your wallpaper’s image to be, and how you want it positioned. Then you’ll select the calendar month you want, and how you want the calendar portion positioned and what color it is.

Now you can decide if you’d like to make the image black and white, if so check the box next to the option. You can also blur the image, add a color overlay (this puts the color you select over the complete image – I don’t overly care for this effect) and you can even add a credit to the image you’re making.

If you’ve got everything set up the way you want it, click the Create button, and the application will create your calendar. This will take you to a page that has your calendar on it, as well as, some navigation options. They are: Edit, Start Over, Save, Upload to Flickr, Share and lastly, E-mail.

If you see anything you want to change click the Edit option and you’ll be taken back to the previous form. Hate it entirely, and then Start Over. I prefer the Save option out of all the ways to share/save they have because I like to keep a hard copy of wallpapers and desktop backgrounds in case I accidentally change them.

This is a great way to personalize your desktop and have a calendar right where you can see it!
