Lastly, a Few Things to Keep in Mind…
Don’t Forget Undo
When you are customizing your calendar–replacing photos, resizing, and repositioning, adding and editing graphics elements–you can sometimes get stuck.
In those times, don’t forget about Undo. You can always choose Edit>Undo or use the keyboard shortcuts Command-Z on a Mac/Ctrl-Z on a PC once or even multiple times to undo your steps and redo.
Save Early and Save Often
As you work and make changes to your calendar, it’s a good idea to save your project.
To save your calendar, select File>Save from the top menu bar. If it’s the first time you’ve saved your calendar, you’ll be able to give your project a name and select a location where the file will be saved.
The Save As dialog box looks a little different on a PC (the screen shot above is from a Mac), but the features are the same.
By default, the calendar will be saved to the Photo Project Format (PSE). This format includes all of the photos, layouts, graphics and settings used in your calendar. For that reason, it’s important to use this format if you want to be able to re-edit your calendar at a later date.
You also have the option to save your calendar to a different format. To do that, choose File>Save As and choose a different format such as PDF. Be warned that the PDF that you’ll create would be quite large, probably too large to send via email.
You can also decide to export the calendar to a JPEG, TIFF or PDF using the File>Export command.
Once you’ll typed in a name and navigated to where the project will be saved, click on the Save button. It may take a minute or two to save the files, especially the first time.
