What a great start you have made for your calendars!:))

It seems that there are some issues that have come up - let me try to answer your questions:

Does the calendar have to be a Christmas calendar? No, not at all. I know that some of you do create calendars as Christmas gifts for family and friends - hence the idea of creating them now during the Christmas in July event. But you are free to create the calendar you like, using them any way you like:DD

PSE cannot manipulate grouped files. I have added another download to yesterday's post, for ungrouped PSD files. These type of files will be included with any other month now.

PSE cannot open the files. Unfortunately I do not have an answer for this one (yet). I have no idea why some of you can open them and others cannot. If any of you have ideas or suggestions about this I would be very happy to hear them!

Here's a look at the preview of today's downloads:

Please do post your February calendars in this thread - here is where I will check for them when I will send out the March download links.

PSE7 - Feb psd file won't open - the message said: ... the results would be too big. This is just FYI in trying to figure out what's possibly wrong.

I just pm'ed you with the download link for a test file - I sincerely hope they will work now...please, try and let me know...

It is bedtime now in my place, so please, don't take it amiss if I don't answer until tomorrow..

BTW, I'm a PSP user, and the files open fine in PSP. I do have PSE 7 and opened the file in it, with the same results as everyone else. The grouped layers are not editable. However when I went to open it wanted to change the font; it was taking too long, so I canceled that. No problem using the files in PSP.

I am one of the few using family members in my calendar. I like the others general idea better. Sorry family.

Min - I certainly won't take it amiss. I searched this subject and see that this problem crops up with many different Adobe products, of course, I saw nothing on my vs. PSE. The general advice was to delete the Preference file as it gets corrupt but I went in and reset it all - that didn't help. I can't find the file to delete it. As I messaged you, the test files did not work. I'll just use the PNG files you supplied. Thank you for your attempts.

Hi Min,
Just returned from a long vacation we left on May 28th and returned home on Wedesday the 17th, so needless to say I have missed out on everything and just now starting to catch up.
If it is OK with you I have downloaded Day 1 and will do my January calender day tomorrow. Maybe I can catch up with all the other ladies. I missed you all and most of the areas we visited there was no Internet Service just a dead zone.
Hugs,
marilynnay

An URL is the "name" or adress of an internet page - if you look at the top of your internet browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer or whatever other program you use to serve the web) right now, you should see a line that reads: http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14271&page=4 (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?p=158366#post158366)- that's the URL of this page.

To post your layout in this thread you have to upload it first to your gallery and copy the URL of that page. When you do your forum post there's this little image of a mountain with a sun in a yellow sky http://www.ambowife.com/images/studio/imageicon.jpg, click on it and enter the URL of you gallery page in the little window that pops up. Click ok and your image should show up. (you will probably have to delete the "http://" that is already entered there).

Here's (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8663) also a tutorial, and here's (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11808) a related one.

Let me know if you have any more questions:)

oh, and March link is in your inbox
