How to use this?
This is a very simple Excel template. Just follow these instructions.
- Once you download the file, you would find 4 sheets inside.
- Go to the Monthly Calendar tab and play with the calendar. If you want to change colors, fonts etc. do that.
- Now, go to Pics tab. Here we have 12 pics (preloaded with some cute cats & dogs)
- Remove all the pics and add your own.
- Once you added the pics, resize them so that they can fit in Column B (800 px). Each photo should take up 2 rows (total 600 px maximum)
- Once you have added the photos, arrange each photo in 1 cells, starting from B2 (thus 12th pic will be in B24&B25)
- That is all, go back to Monthly calendar to check out your own personalized picture calendar.
Bonus: Click on the “Make 12 month PDF” to generate 12 month-wise calendars pdfs.
How does this work?
This calendar uses some of my favorite techniques,
- Picture links – to display picture for any given month
- OFFSET, INDEX formulas – to drive the calculations
- Macros – to change the month
To help you understand how this works, I have made a short video explaining the template, the VBA code & formulas. Go ahead and watch it below:

super-liked the photos used... wishing you many more crowns this year and many more to come!
Keep it up !!!
hi very nice and good to see the formulas, i think only thing could have been added is displaying of month (ex: January, Feb..) when converted to pdf file which seems to be missing.
@Stef@n & all... sadly this template wont look as good or work as well in Excel 2007. You can fix the macro error by assigning the color, however, the picture links cannot be pushed back in Excel 2007 (afaik).
all the best for the new year !
one little question:
if i change the month "MonthlyCalender" (grey dots)
VBA shows me a mistake No 438
and the code stopped in the line
.ForeColor.Brightness = -0.150000006
and also in the line
.ForeColor.Brightness = 0.349999994
Do you have an idea ?
i use excel 2007

Impressive and very grateful for sharing your knowledge with us.

hello great and easy calendar project! howerver pdf macro did not work. did anyone else encounter this problem?
First of all wish you and your family a very happy new year. I am sure you will come up with many more innovations and ideas in Excel. Best of Luck.
This Picture Calendar Template is just brilliant. I have just 1 question here. In the Monthly Calendar sheet, why do the pictures appear in GreyScale even if you Insert colored pictures ??
@Sridhar... I have applied Gray scale effect on the picture link. Just select the picture in calendar, go to format ribbon and from "Color" button, choose the regular color instead of Gray scale.
I tried opening the file but it would show me an error- "Run time error- 438" "Object doesnot support this property or method". Am I missing something??
Chandoo, the calander is an amazing idea, I got around with the 438 error by commenting out the code '.ForeColor.Brightness = -0.150000006'. Thank you for the new year gift, wishing you, hui, Vijay and your families a very happy new year!!
The calendar looks really nice. Will use it and let you know how it works out. Have to learn a lot in excel.
I am updating my excel skills and discovered your site. What a gift! Your videos and examples are very user friendly. Thank you for your efforts and sharing of your knowledge.
Blessings to you and your family.
