How do I make a calendar with photo captions?
For the past three years I have created a calendar from my iPhoto albums, but can see no way to add a description below each of the photos in it. You can only add details to the cover photo.
I have Photoshop Elements 11, but I have not explored it sufficiently yet to see if it can do this. I have also checked my copy of iPhoto ’09: The Missing Manual and it contains nothing about this. Robin Mellings I haven’t played around with iPhoto calendars enough to be sure how recently this was added, but you can definitely do it in the current version (which is iPhoto 9.6). If you select a calendar page and click the Layout button at the bottom of the window, you’ll see two layout options for each arrangement of photos. The left one is just the photo; the righthand one has a caption beneath it. The thumbnails don’t make it very obvious, but it’s there. If you are marooned on an older version of iPhoto that lacks this, you could use Photoshop to edit captions onto the photos, and re-import the edited versions into iPhoto, but this is a good deal fiddlier.
