Make Your Own 2011 Calendar - Fast and Easy Way

Make Your Own 2011 Calendar – Fast and Easy Way

Comments Off

I remember, a very long time ago (it was still 20th century :)) I collected photos of my family members:  grandfather, grandmother, mother, sister, aunts, uncles, cousins …  and got them scanned in a printing studio (no digital cameras at that time of course and to buy flatbed scanner you had to be seriously rich).  I wanted to create a calendar as a Christmas gift to all members of my family.

So, in CorelDRAW! I made 12 pages calendar, one page each month. And I still remember, today, how tough it was to create months and how many times I had to check and re-check the weekdays and numbers and holidays and birthdays (each family member had their birthday especially marked on that calendar).

It takes time to verify and make sure that all 365 dates are under the correct weekday. It took me a week, at that time, to finish the calendar.

But it was the best Christmas gift I could have given to them. Everyone just loved it! Some kept that calendar for years after that Christmas and everyone still remembers how, back then in ninety something, they got this custom calendar with  images and birthdays of our family members.

Today, I am a pro. I made so many calendars since then that I lost the count. Anyway, that one is still remembered and it shows how custom made gifts will always have a special place in our memories.

Even if you are just starting with Photoshop and you don’t know, if just don’t have the time to make a calendar in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW! you can use your own photos, add your personal touch and make beautiful calendars with a little help of the brand new, (bsilvia brand of quality! :) ):

Humans!
(Now, what did you expect me to call you? You call us cats, it’s only fair that we call you humans, no?)

Anyways, it was brought to my attention that a number of humans don’t have Photoshop (which is totally ok, because it’s not very cheap, I know, you can get loads of cat’s food for that kind money…).

Also, I was led to believe that many humans, who don’t have Photoshop, would still like to take advantage of beautiful Silvia’s Photoshop brushes.

Many humans would like to use it as .png files for their scrap booking, digital stamping, photo albuming, graphics designing and web producing, even Power Point presenting projects.

And that is not all. Apparently, a number of humans already have Windows 7, and good old abrViewer, reportedly, does not work under Windows 7.

So, how do we convert these beautiful Silvia’s Photoshop brushes to PNG files – I hear you ask?

Piece of cake.

Here is what to do:

1. Make sure have the latest version of GIMP

2. Copy the great bsilvia Photoshop brush by pressing Ctrl+C on it

3. Paste that brush into the GIMP brushes folder (In Windows it is C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\brushes)
However, to make sure, of if you are using Mac (lucky you!) you can check the GIMP brushes folder in GIMP, by clicking on Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> Brushes

Photoshop brushes to PNG files using GIMP - Path to brushes in GIMP

4. Start GIMP and open a new file (make it as big as you would like your PNG file to be, I made it 4inx4in at 200dpt for printing)

Open a new file in GIMP

Open a new file in GIMP

5. Make sure you are working on a transparent layer (that’s if you want to have transparent PNG file in the end)

Placing a Photoshop brush in GIMP

Place the brush on the transparent layer (actually delete the background layer should you have one)

7. Save this file as PNG

That’s it.

Now, you have a beautiful PNG file created from beautiful bsilvia’s Photoshop brush.

Hi, this is not Silvia speaking.

I’m Meoki.



Black&White, up-side-down cat holding “Special Offers” board, look here, a little bit up on the right side ->

Silvia decided that she needs some rest (and believe me – she does) and asked me if I could do the post and introduce brand new Photoshop brushes she created for her GBG Platinum Members.

Sure“, I said. As if I had anything else to do except holding that “Special Offers” board all day long (I go away at night but sssshhh! Don’t tel her.)

Why did you put me up-side-down, by the way?” I asked her.  “It’s a good thing that I am just a cartoon, otherwise all my blood would end up in my head. Not good …

Because” she said, “I red somewhere, that people will notice you more easily that way.

“Peeh!”

Anyways, she be gone (sends “hugs and kisses everyone”), I’m here, so bear with me (you could beer with me as well. If you click on the “Special Offers” board and get yourself some nice discounted brushes, vectors, etc … :))

Anyways, it’s Tuesday, and Silvia wanted to dedicate every Tuesday to her GBG Platinum members, by giving them a little …. well … gift! So, this Tuesday, she prepared

Swirled Squares Design Elements (Photoshop brushes, or Digital stamps as some call it)

Swirled Squares consists of 12 brushes in two sizes  (as usual to prevent overstretching and keep the quality top-notch) and two design styles: clean and grungy.

So, thank you Melissa! Great work!

Melissa is not just a wedding photographer, she also photographs children, architecture, animals… and she does it really good. Here is what she said about herself:

PHOTOGRAPHY IS MY PASSION! I became a photographer because I have a passion for finding beauty in everything and photography has allowed me to capture the beauty for longer than just a moment. I especially enjoy weddings and portraiture photography because I am very personable and I LOVE making people look their best! I love going to a wedding and blending in effortlessly with the bride, groom, and entire family while capturing the traditions, surprises and all of the little details that weddings bring. I can actually say that as a photographer, I love my job each and every day!

People get married!

I bet you are stunned now :)

But, there is another thing going on here. While we are at it, we take pictures, and on the top of it – we (more often then not) make wedding albums!

We all want our wedding albums to look good. And while I was preparing to make one for a friend of mine, I figured I need to decorate the border around the photo. Actually, I needed to frame the photo in the wedding album.

So, I made several frames, few of them, just for my personal use. And then I realized – BANG! Now, that’s something others might be interested in having too! Decorate a photo, add a frame, c’mon, it’s basics of wedding albums (and photo albums after all).

You guessed the rest of the story. I ended up by making 25 wedding photo frames! In order to preserve the quality and my long ago set standards, all of them are initially made in vectors and then transferred to Photoshop brushes and PNG files.

So, ladies and gentleman, my dear visitors, if you would like to make wedding photo album yourself, for your own, or your friends, brothers, sisters wedding or for your clients (if you are a photographer or graphic designer), or if you’d like to make a wedding photo album for re-sale, there you go – a perfect time saver with commercial license included.

Let me present you:

Wedding Photo Frames (squares) Photoshop brushes (digital stamps) and transparent PNG files!

About the set:

  • 25 wedding photo frames in three sizes  for 2,5×2,5 – 3,5×3,5 – 4,5×4,5 inches photos
  • 25 transparent PNG files for 4,5×4,5 inches photo
  • Compatible with Adobe Photoshop (ver. 7.0 up to CS5), Photoshop Elements, PaintShopPro, Paint.NET and more…
  • Commercial use OK!

Photo frames are created in “grungy” style, hearts, swirls, flowers and appropriate wordings around the frames: “Love”, “Love is the Foundation”, “for Time and all Eternity”, “perfect love”, “Forever Begins Today”, “a beautiful moment”, “our love will not die” and more…  Those cute picture frames are ideal for wedding photo albums and wedding digiscrap!

| Preview Wedding Photo Frames Photoshop brushes set | Buy this set |

Yes, as always, I prepared a a FREE lite edition of Wedding Photo Frames digital stamps/Photoshop brushes set (scrapbook stamp freebies): there are 3  brushes in a set. These are smaller size than the ones in the PREMIUM package, but still good enough for on-line wedding albums.

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy…

Who does not recall the legendary Beatles song which starts with La Marseillaise. Even if you’ve been born long after the Hipi movement, the core idea is still very alive. I hope you will agree.

Anyways, inspired by the ever lasting idea of love and expressing this idea the best way I know I created, what? Yes, you guessed:

Photoshop brushes (Digital Stamps) and Vectors (Yes, vectors!) Pack

Squared Love – Word Art

Why “squared”? Well, you’ve all heard about “fair and square” term right? Well, there you go…

It will be circled love next time.

Now, it’s built in squares and it looks good. I know it might sound weird but it’s looks good. And graphic art is not about how it sounds, it’s about what it looks like :)

OK. Enough now … here is what I prepared today:

New Special Mini Pack: Squared Love Word Art

What’s in a pack:

* 12 brushes in two sizes
* commercial license is, as always, included (so you can make money with them – no questions asked)
* 12 vector files: EPS
* 12 PNG transparent files
* Compatible with Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Adobe Illustrator and more

| Preview | Buy ($6.50) |

You can use those digital stamps (Photoshop brushes and transparent PNG files)  in your cards, wrapping paper designs, boxes, digital scrapbooking, rubber stamps…

Also, vector files can be re-sized in vector applications such as Illustrator or CorelDraw! So you are not limited with the size.

Of course, as always, I prepared something as a free download- True Love – PNG file  3,5×4,5 inches at 300dpi

| Download transparent PNG Squared Love Word Art |

OK. That’s it for today. Love each other, cherish and respect people around you and your life will be, well, loving!

…happiness… happiness… happiness… isn’t that what we all are searching for?

And aren’t we happy once we find happiness? :)

Aren’t we sad when we lose it?

OK. That’s enough!

Here is what I’ve got for you today:

Now, here is what I think. There is no need to be hilarious all day. Just smile and feel how good it feels :)
I don’t know about you, but I love to smile. Really love to smile :) and usually when someone approaches me – I smile. It’s not like I’m forcing myself into that. No sir.

It comes out by itself.

I just… smile!

And sometimes, non-smiling people don’t like smiling people. Trust me, I had few nasty scenes with people I even don’t know – only because I was smiling. But, this is not a story about them. This is a story about a smile, happiness, laughter :) and my new Photoshop brushes set (some prefer to call them digital stamps) is dedicated to those simple things (which matter the most).

Mini set:

Happy Circled Word-Art Photoshop brushes (7+7 – two sizes) + 7 transparent PNG files

This MINI set is FREE for GBG Gold and Platinum Members!

But if you are not a member you can still get it at a ridiculous price of only $3.50 if you click right here -> :)

  • Commercial use license
  • Compatible with Photoshop 7.0, CS, CS2, CS3, CS4 and CS5.

The Flying Pigs of Happiness, Photoshop Brushes

The Flying Pigs of Happiness, Photoshop Brushes

I got  “The Pig of Happiness” mug by Edward Monkton from my sister some time ago. She brought it from her trip to London and … it instantly became my favorite mug (who doesn’t have one). It says: “May his JOYFUL SMILE remind us how much there is to be HAPPY about”

So, inspired by this totally cool “making me smile” mug, I made my own version of Happy Pigs. I gave them wings and made them fly, so now they’re called

The Flying Pigs of Happiness

and I turned them into

Photoshop brushes

And I dedicated that brush to all my loving GBG members which will get it for free in our GBG eZine July 2010 edition (you too can joing GBG here ->)!

These 8 flying piggies will be available as .abr and .png files and I hope you will have fun using them as a decoration for your designs! I know I had fun creating them!

So, here they are 8 flying piggies, I hope they will put a smile on your face :

Colored version

Flying piggies – monochrome version

:D

| Preview The Flying Pigs of Happiness, Photoshop Brushes |

So, you will get it in our next GBG eZine which should come out soon.

In the mean time, don’t forget to check out on our Summer 2010 Competition Page and take part in it!

[BUY PREMIUM version of Tatto Designs 2 Photoshop brushes set ->]

  • As usual, they were originally created as vectors so you can rest assured that this, like, the best quality Photoshop brushes you can possibly get.
  • They are compatible with Photoshop 7 and all Photoshop CS versions (from CS to CS5)
  • If you convert them to PNG format (with abr viewer) you can also use them with Paint.NET, PSP and any other decent bitmap or photo editing software out there.
  • Hereby, I solemnly  declare that you can use them for your commercial projects, so if you are into photography, scrapbooking, rubber stamping or any other design business, no worries, go ahead, use them for your designs and make money.

Of course, it would be just great if you decide to go for the PREMIUM version. Not just because it’s $9.99 only (what’s that? like, two pizzas?), but also because in the PREMIUM ones you get a really BIG brushes (up to 2400 pixels) so you can get the best quality for your project.

OK. That’s it for now, thank you for your attention.

Have fun!
Silvia
