Thanks for the reply. I will look into creating a cover that is more appropriate to the format.

At this point, I have moved away from iPhoto (was using iPhoto '11, version 9.2.3, build 629.52) in order to create the full length page. I still use iPhoto to generate the calendar grid content, but I copied it into a new document that is the required 13.75 x 19.25 size for this calendar format. The PDF is now being generated by the latest version of OpenOffice Draw. I actually like this way of doing it because I can make sure that the images better fit your format.

I'm glad you like the images! I'm looking forward to seeing a final product.

Tom,

Hello!

The image on page http://www.prestophoto.com/create/photo-calendars has the top portion of the image cut off. It is just the image that's shortened in order to fit on the page better. the cover itself prints an entire page!

You can make adjustments to your cover without having the re-upload the entire project. You can do this at the Cover Step / Step 2 in the process. Here's a great screencast about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCzvd1emPB8&list=UUgWmJwU2t0SRxjGkHaEVzGA&index=10&feature=plcp

If you could confirm with us what version of iPhoto you are using. If you are using the older version then we might not be able to correct it, but if you just let us know then we'll be able to fix it from here.

ps - your images are incredible!!

If you have any further questions please let us know and we'll do our best to help!

Best regards,

Thank you for fixing the calendar issue.

I have a question about the cover size. The pictures on your product page for 13.5x19 calendars (http://www.prestophoto.com/create/photo-calendars) make it look like the cover is half size or something. But, it looks like the cover is actually the full 13.5x19. Is that correct? If so, I will want to redesign the cover.

Is there any way to do an in-place replacement of the PDF, or do I have to delete the current project and go through the PDF Wizard again? If so, is there anything I can do to make your software recognize the PDF as a calendar and not a book? It seems that no matter what I upload, it always thinks it is a book.

Thanks again for the help.

Greetings, tom!

This has been fixed - http://www.prestophoto.com/shop/130136

It was identified as a book, which is why it was showing a minimum page count. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Best,

Creating 13.5x19 Calendar By Hand

I just went through the effort of creating a PDF with the dimensions of 13.75x19.25 (the size listed in your product catalog for the 13.5x19 calendar). I have uploaded the PDF with a cover, but I just now see that the minimum number of pages is 20. I'm trying to make a 12-month calendar. Why is the minimum number of pages for a calendar 20?

I know quite a few people who want to buy this calendar at full size and I keep trying to make it work on your site:

1. I uploaded original iPhoto generated calendar PDF:
- Not recognized as calendar and when fixed by your side only the small version available
2. Tried using you Book Designer with the Calendar template:
- Unable to add events to calendar section
2. Make a PDF the size of the calendar:
- rejected due to number of pages.

I feel that I have given this my best effort, but keep getting thwarted. I fear it just isn't meant to be. It seems like calendars are an afterthought here. Would love to see them get more attention.

You can preview what a nice calendar this could have been here: http://www.prestophoto.com/shop/130136
