February 2022 calendars — monochrome edition

In my previous post (LINK), I discriminated against two groups . . . them who don’t have color printers and people who are colorblind.

Some comments (indirectly) pointed to the folly of providing a printable calendar in this age of the digital phone with integrated and sinched calendars across multiple platforms. And, in fact, I rarely print a calendar because I put all my events, reminders, appointments on my Google calendar and schedule email reminders and alerts so that I don’t miss or forget an appointment.

I occasionally have the need to consult calendars in a more tactile way, so I like the option of printing either a few months at a time or a yearly version.

For the rare people who don’t know, you can find free Word and Excel templates online for almost any type of calendar you might imagine. Not to mention, but I will, many, many, PDF versions of different styles and formats ranging from weekly to yearly (and some longer). Obviously, but I’ll still mention it, you can customize the templates (if you have the skills) but the PDF you just print as is (unless you have serious skills and a PDF editor and the files aren’t locked).

If you don’t have Microsoft Office, you can get free Office Suites compatible with MS Office. And, further, those templates could be uploaded to Google Docs or Sheets, and, if you don’t like Google, ZoHo offers online office suites free to individuals. I have a ZoHo account and it includes email and apps very similar to Google. For the xenophobes, be aware that it’s an Indian company.

But, none of them options will get you a calendar with one of my photos! … er … unless you get the PanosFx add-on to Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, and you have either of those apps, and you steal one of my photos (please don’t do that without asking). But, why go to all that trouble when I give these versions to you for free?

. . . here are a few more . . .

The printable files for the monthly calendars are HERE. The February calendar names begin with (duh!) the number 002 and the name contains the description (squirrel, butterfly, etc.) and you can see a thumbnail to the right of the list. The monochrome versions have “BnW” in the name in addition to the descriptor.

You should be able to download the files — the “BnW” files if you don’t have a color printer — and, if you so desire, you should be able to print them on 8.5×11 letter-size paper. I could have made an A4 version, but unless requested, these will all be Letter-sized.

No, I won’t be offended if no one downloads them. Part of doing this is to keep in practice with some Photoshop features, so, again, it’s for my benefit.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
